The Lonely Goatherd

Got that song stuck in my head this afternoon when the kids were running around outside trying to 'herd' the goats!

'High on a hill was a lonely goatherd

Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo!'

We let them out of their pen for a while to let them check out their new surroundings & munch on some of our weeds. It was so funny to stand back & see the whole family out there just watching our new pets & enjoying the evening together. Reminded me of the time way back when Rodney & Amy were up here when we first got our chickens & we were all sitting around the chicken pen in lawn chairs just watching the chickens. We are going to get a couple of chains & be able to stake them where we want them & not have them just wandering around the whole yard. And of course we have turned this into one our 'Unschooling' opportunities. Ashley & I got some books at the library this afternoon about goats. So, we are already 'learning'. ;-)
