    🙂 I would not be able to do anything else on the farm, just hang out with the baby goats all day.

    Curious little dudes, aren’t they! I love that last picture, the light hooded one peeking around the tree watching you.

      It’s hard to get a good picture of them when they’re playing in a mob, because it’s hard to get anything but their backsides. I liked that one too, since 3 out of the 5 were looking at me.

    Do goats stick their tongues out when they’re happy? There’s are a lot of tongue-sticker-outers in your crew, including mama, in that first photo. I’m tempted to just sit here and look at them instead of turning on the news. Maybe I will.

      Along those same lines, what do they do with their tails? I notice some up, some down… are they like a dog, wagging when happy?

        I’ve honestly never paid much attention to that. They wag their tails when they’re nursing. Normally I think their tails stick up. I’m going to have to watch them more carefully now to figure out if there is any pattern.

      News, what news? Seems to be all the same for hundreds, thousands of years. Linda, I can see your cat getting a tongue-sticker-outer buddy soon. 🙂

      Scott, you got me curious, so first I thought maybe the ones with tails up were pooping, but looks like they are a lot like dogs, see here: http://www.whisperingtalesgoats.com/didyouknow.htm
      That guy in the last pic with tail down looks like he’s been caught in crime scene, a little scared of the photographer.

      Actually they don’t stick out their tongues a lot. I just got lucky with those shots.

      Unfortunately this is turning out to be not a good day to read the news. I’m glad to provide a baby goat alternative.

    Bill, goat blog posts are always a hit with us. The cuteness is soothing to the soul. I can imagine that the factor is multiplied 100 fold to see them live and up close. It’s definitely something you couldn’t experience being a lawyer. 🙂

    Have a great watching the kids day.

      We do enjoy kidding season. But surprisingly my baby goat posts don’t draw nearly as much traffic as when I editorialize on something. Posts like this one will have about half as many views and visitors as “normal” posts. But that’s OK by me. Some days I just want to share pictures of kids.

    goat number five is camouflaged (against fallen tree, ancient) and seems to be logging – its goals.

      Glad you enjoyed the photos. It’s hard to resist taking pictures when I’m in the pasture. A better photographer would have a field day. Literally.
