Goosey Goat Herd!

The first baby goats were born at the end of January and we now have three lovely new girls and a little boy. We're waiting for some more now! It has been pretty cold here and the pond has been frozen, so we have put everyone together in the barn to keep warm. Our goose, Lucy, has since become very attached to the goats and won't let anyone but us near them! She knew when Kelly and Prudence were close to giving birth and became very protective and now she grooms the babies and herds them back into the barn when they venture outside! 

It has been fascinating to watch but it means we need to move her back outside when anyone comes to visit - it'll be great when we have the big thaw and she can get back onto her pond full time!
