Settling In

Enjoying the long weekend, I am happy to announce that the trio of goats are settling in and getting along.  Aspen and Charlie are still putting Vanilla Bean in line but they take breaks to enjoy the good weather.  I am also excited that the goats are getting large enough that only Aspen can sneak out of the fence.  As soon as Aspen escapes and realizes that she is the only one, she quickly returns to everyone else.

All the goats are really like family pets enjoying sitting in your lap or just taking your seat when you are not looking.


When they are not taking our seats they were trying to cool off in some dirt.


Besides being entertained by the goats we have had the neighbor cat coming over daily and tonight found a mouse.  At first I thought it was a frog, but as I got closer realized it was a mouse- which was quite disgusting as the cat (which I later found out is named Oliver) was crunching on it’s body.  ugh.

Before the cat episode, I watched as one of the red stars start running and realized she had a frog.  Once the rest of the hens noticed the excitement it was a game of keep away with the frog.  As soon as we noticed, I had to run and grab my phone to try and capture.  Here is my attempt.


The greatest though is the video:
