A visit to the barn
On Saturday, my goats, Pete and Reggie, wanted to go for a walk. They really love their walks and are very clear with me when they think it's time to go for one. At these times, they will bypass even a freshly filled hay rack to get out the door.

You might recall they are the rescue llamas I wrote about in my October 6th post. These three sweet girls will be spending the winter with us.
But just wait. There's more. :-)
