State of the goats

The boys have settled into the front pasture together. I opened up both sides so that they could distribute themselves as they choose. I'm suspicious that Jared has taken over the right stall all by himself, but haven't seen complete proof. Loki is still romancing Sancho. Gimble has decided that his only speed is "fast trot," while Goblin is working on his rabbit sprints (tucking his hind legs together up under his stomach and shooting off across the pasture).

The girls, Scout, and Berry are all doing fine in back. The pregnant hornless goats are both waddling now. Anna's tail has fallen to horizontal and cockeyed, and Jessie's udder is full. Of course, I'm sure that means that Mona will kid first, or something equally unnoticed.
