goat news!

It's been just about a year since we gave our dear goats to their new people, Stuart and Robin. It's been almost that long since we heard anything about them, and we kind of figured we just had to let them go. But the other day we ran into Stuart and Robin in town, and they were just as surprised to see us as we were to see them. We were supposed to be in Oregon by now...

It was so nice to get all caught up on the goaty happenings. S&R like them so much, they decided to get seven more, and next year they plan to breed little Joon! Sam is still funny and goofy and sweet, and the biggest news was that Benny has yet another new home. He had become so large, so aggressive, and so testosterone laden (even though he was neutered!) that he was butting everyone in sight, including Robin, who is a small person. He was dangerous, the dear boy, so they took him to live with John, a Goat Man who keeps a herd up in the mountains. Benny is now running with the big boys, and is in training to become a pack goat. What a lucky guy, our Benny! Here he is with John and some of the other goats.

And here's the herd, caring very little about the silly bridge. Something tells me these billies won't take any of Benny's guff!
