Daisy's looking after two new goats now. She still has Luscious Kandy, but Sinnamon has gone home and in her place we have Summer Diamond and Cocoa. Phylllis is using Daisy to civilize the babies. They come here rather wild, not used to being handled, and hating the leash.
After a week in Daisy's custody they accept kisses on the nose, allow belly-scratching, and are comfortable enough with the leash that she can take all three out at once by herself.
She likes company, though, so she can talk about how cute and sweet the goats are. And so that we can cut the armfuls of brush and branches that must be thrown in the pen daily for the goats to eat when they aren't out grazing.
So the evening graze is sometimes a family affair, with Fitzwilliam keeping an eye on things from the corner.
