Luna's Gift...Frolicing Friends...

I fell so in love with Luna that I decided that goats were much like potato chips.  I couldn't have just one.  The current herd consists of Luna and three friends.  Ella, Celeste and Jane Doe.  Luna is herd queen, and my undeniable favorite, but each and every one of the others adds to the joy of goat-keeping.

One of the wonderful things about goats is that they are prone to frolicking. We provide things for the girls to hop up and on. Here Jane and Ella are up a on bridge we made them on two wooden spools.

Celeste looks on, but most always joins in. The goats are amazingly nimble, despite their size, (150-175 lbs.)  They are excellent at leaping and twisting.  Goats are in the caprine family, and this is where the word capricious comes from. A word that means "Subject to, led by, or indicative of a sudden, odd, notion or unpredictable change; erratic." (

They are a joy to watch.

And to emulate...
