Sun, country, and baby goats
One of my coworkers owns a nursery about an hour outside Portland, and has alpacas, chickens, ducks, and goats. My company's Fun Committee puts together seasonal weekend events like pumpkin patching, Christmas tree-cutting, etc. and last year (at my suggestion!! =) ), springtime baby goat-visiting and plant start shopping. We went last year and got comfortable playing with and picking up the goats, and it's time for it again this year!
(Baby goats are among the cutest things ever. Evidence: this video and this video. So it was so fun (spirit-lightening, really!!) to see them jumping around in person!)
Here are a few shots of our buddies. The two smallest were only 2 weeks old. This one weighed about as much as our cat, I swear. And was only slightly less cuddly.
The other babies were 6-8 weeks old.
So cuddly! The hay in my pocket was for feeding to the goats. What an interactive experience!
We also stocked up on veggie starts for our front porch container garden.
I'm excited for spring and summer and more chances out get out to the country!
