My herd is complete again
A friend's son had two goats for his 4H project and, after the exhibitions were over, he lost interest in taking care of them, so they came to join Boots, Raja and Daphne. It made Daphne really happy, one girl and two boys, even neutered boys, is not a good combination. Now she is joined by Shirley, a coal black one and Lucy, a pure white one. They all integrated quite well and with minimal head-butting.
My dog Gussie is so taken with the expanded herd, she spent all day hanging around the goat area, and "herding" them, that is - running along the fence and making sure they stay inside their fenced area. I finally had to call her in, because she is no pup and has been sedentary lately, she got exhausted, but like a true McNab she would not quit.
Funny how two small goats can make everyone smile and feel good.
