The goats are coming back from summer camp in really good shape; Taffy is particularly handsome right now. The kids all look pretty good, if small, and are completely covered in fleece. Simon is the only one who is at all social with me, which I admit is my own fault. A general round of toe trimming is really the big pre-show requirement now, and I'm getting to it a few goats at a time.
Jessie is ancient, but to see her at the fence, flirting with Richie, she obviously thinks she's still got it. She walks very stiffly and drinks a LOT when she gets to the bucket. She's not terribly thin and appears clear-eyed. Loki is likewise looking ancient and eating well. I saw him break into a happy galumphing run last weekend, so I'm guessing his energy level is still good, too. Sancho is getting thinner and thinner, reminding me of the upright, corded-muscle old men at Grandpa's retirement community. He also appears to be in good energy right now.
Ari would like some girls, please. He spends a lot of his time at the fence, calling and snorting across the driveway at Alys (in with Richie), who is the only girl he can *see*. He can hear the whole group, though, and - GIRLS!
The SVFF goat show is in ten days. I'm really looking forward to it!
ETA: I also realized that I have no nice profile photos for Elsa or Emma. I need to fix that.
