Goat update (Apollo and Taura)

I just got a cute note from Apollo's new owners...

Everyone here has settled in quite nicely. Would you believe they never really acted out... Thank you so much for your kind words they really mean a lot. C and I really think you are a special person and we both love the relationship you have with your animals. I always see what we haven't done with the animals not what we have... Apollo is the absolute best goat as you well know. He is just so sweet and always talks to us.

Yesterday the goats got into the backyard and we had to catch Taura, would you believe while I was holding Taura she reached out and bit me. Not hard but she knew what she was doing.

ETA: Yes, I am laughing. For your reference, please see my previous post about Taura's biting talent, cleverly titled Good Thing Goats Don't Bite"
