goats and gravity

Compliments of Loki and Jared smashing the dividing gate to pieces - literally - the whole field is one unified area right now. So all of the "big" boys (Loki, Sancho, Jared, and Cookie) are sharing the whole front field. They are mostly calmed down, and are mostly back to general destructive testing of the facilities rather than each other.

This evening, I took a new bale of hay up front to the boys before taking hay out back to the girls and their kids. While I was in the back enjoying baby goat time, I heard the usual banging of big goat horns on the hayrick ringing across the front yard. I didn't think much of it; it happens all the time. But, as I normally do on my way back inside, I glanced up at the boys to verify that no one was hurt in the sport. I noticed that they had flipped the hayrick. Now, this is a not-unusual occurrence.

What made it notable this time was that they flipped the hayrick lengthwise so that it was standing on end. Well done, guys.

I put it to rights and piled all of the freshly fluffed hay back into it. I then jammed two of its feet under the fence. Yes, this is a challenge. I can't wait to see what's next.
