As always I have to apologise for the non-updatingness of the bloggings. But such are the days, that they fall away when not numbered by our systems. Not much has happened. More ongoing computer troubles and some emotional downtime. But otherwise the planets are aligned for another constellation, and they spin gravity of our yarn. It is a constant rotation, is it not?
The sun was peaking out yesterday. Temperatures upwards of 15 degrees I think. A perfect day for a goat trip. And perfectly I am just the perfect guy to visit some perfect goats. So I did. And had a jolly good time. Although Magnethe was a little naughty. I had a little plastic bag with old bread and raisins and she snatched it right out of my pocket. And then she ran off with it. And when I grabbed a hold of her to get it back she ran off with me and dragged me around. She’s a strong goat! But I think all the goats enjoyed having raisins sprinkled all over their pen.
The buck is still there, and seems to have taken his place at the top of the hierarchy. Not letting anyone push him around anymore. And you can tell that him and Bob don’t get along too well. Even though Bob isn’t a competition in the wooing of the ladies, the buck still won’t tolerate him being near. And Bob has learned this, he clearly keeps his distance from the buck. Runs away when the buck comes near. He’s getting bigger but he’s not strong enough to take on a more or less full grown buck. You have to pick your battles.
You can tell spring is here because the goats sat down and enjoyed the sunshine. They never sit down when it’s cold. Not during the times I’m there anyway. I imagine later on in the day when they get tired they’ll sit down. But if it’s cold or raining and they aren’t tired then they never sit. When the sun comes out they’ll sit down and chill out and that’s always a good time.
Enjoying the sunshine with goats. That’s where I like to be.
