But yesterday was sunny and warm, and when Tsuga called the kids they just leapt and scrambled and tumbled right over that 12-inch board, so I took it down. Then I built a ramp for tiny goats to play on. This involved setting one end of the board on a rock and getting out of the way.
I didn't get any good pictures of the kids on the ramp yesterday, mostly because I was laughing so hard. But if you've never seen the flexibility of kids, you might like this snap:
Last night it was very windy - trees were bending hard and I called Piper back from a romp in the woods because I could heard big limbs cracking everywhere. And it was cold. This morning, long after the sun was up it was still only 32F and there was a biting wind, so guess who was wearing a coat again:
|Training for Half Dome|
And guess who else was wearing a coat today:
Yes, both the kids were nattily dressed today!
Tsuga is still wearing a bit of cashmere - she's plenty warm!
Here is another little video, taken today.
I moved three of the yearlings into the adjacent pocket paddock,
and at one point, you'll see the babies
Azalea is not a big goat.
The babies are tiny!
Technical (ha!) note: I recommend "muting" this one.
There was heavy machinery roaring
through the whole thing,
and Campion was yelling his annoyance.
(Which was kind of annoying!)
I didn't think of recording without sound.
Such a rookie...
