They're Here!

Right on schedule, a van full of goats pulled into our driveway this evening.

Without wasting any time, Jill (www.thegoatlady.org) and her partner set the tether stakes and unloaded the goats two by two.

Within seconds of placing the first two goats, Sugar and Spice started stripping leaves from the nearest blackberry bush.

Bridget and No-Name quickly reared up to start ripping ivy off tree trunks (and Bridget enjoyed jumping on top of the canoe).

Obie and Delight were put next to the house, where
when she takes a break from eating, Delight alternates between checking out the tetherball and looking right in Trio's window (to her delight).

Google and Gaggle also settled right in pulling ivy leaves and rearing up to trim
low-handing cedar boughs.

Triona and the next door neighbors got friendly with the goats by feeding them grass bunches, which they were more than happy to eat in between mouthfuls of blackberry, ivy and dandelions.

Check back tomorrow for more pictures of their progress...
