Goat Baby diary entry, week 2

The goatlings are acting just like every other vertebrate babies I've ever watched. They are tasting everything to see what is edible, what is nibble-able, and what might nibble back. In the time I watched them yesterday evening, they sampled hay, straw, grass, dirt, poop, leaves, metal fence, wooden fence, old pallets, tree stump, me, the other goats, and probably other things I can't remember now...

I didn't check the camera, but hopefully there is a cute picture on there of Aerin with a leaf in her mouth, looking at me like she is expecting me to explain to her what leaves are and why she should or should not eat them. I didn't feel like trying to explain that the Goat Book of Knowledge says oak leaves are bad for goats and can be toxic in large quantities, but that none of the big goats seem to have had any issues for all the leaves they have eaten. I just laughed at her instead.
