Loki and Jared have officially retired

I just got home from the vet's office with two very sore and unhappy boys. Loki-goat and Jared-goat have been officially and irrevokably retired from the Angora goat gene pool. My hope is that this expense and pain will keep Loki from any more property destruction and from breaking anyone's leg, and keep Jared from a heart attack when he keeps fighting after he's long past done.

They are far older now, and their horns are much wider, but this is likely how I will remember them for a long time...
