My friends are Sparky, Mocha, Daisy, Tack & Jibe. I've been here the longest .I greet Barb every morning in the barn. I climb up on a little shelf to reach my head over the gate.I put my forehead on hers.She calls it a head butt. I goatized Barb.It means I scanned her. Some goats do that. If you ask her she will tell you the story. When Barb plays a cd of The Goat Ballet in the barn my friends and I run thru the field to the side of the cottage to greet new travelers. We all follow behind Barb watching her corral " organized chaos " ( like kids ) on a trail of nine stages which lead to a view of the Sakonnet River where sometimes in the evening, there are sunsets which make everyone turn beautiful orange.
I don't teach Goat Yoga......I am a dancer who was given goats.....I trained our 6 goats in descending order to ,jump up & down in organized chaos on a trail of stages.When they hear the music they come running so happily from the barn to the side of the cottage
