The goat boys live in one of my barn stalls. When they arrived I felt it best to keep them stalled for the first several days so they could get acclimated to their new environment.
We, of course, went out to visit with them very, very often.
The first couple days they were here, it rained and rained.
But on the first sunny day I opened the top partition of the stall door. You can see how Niko handled the new idea. Fairly calm he was.
Kip, on the other hand, made it very clear that he was more than ready to exit the stall. If the door was fully open or not.
Far be it from me to keep them in any longer. So, I opened the door.
They ran right out. And then stopped. And then made the most noise they had made since they arrived. They were very happy to be outside.
The very first thing they did...well, after running and kicking their heels? Jump up on the spool, of course.
Niko and Kip arent that good at sharing.
Now, this spool was given to me in April. Danni brought it for me when she came to help me move in. Well before I even had my little goat babies.
I think this is the greatest housewarming gift ever.
And she delivered it right to my house. And unloaded it and everything.
The kids rolled it up the hill.
Stood it up on end.
And then boys, being boys...they had to climb on it. K on the other hand. Well, she was done.
And when the goats arent sitting up on that spool...we sit on it. And look at the goats some more.
