Other interesting things...
Went out to milk the goats this morning and one was missing. After some frantic searching I heard a forlorn bleat coming from a culvert. To give the pasture some recovery time after the long dry spell I have been grazing the goats in places they normally don't graze. The past couple of days they have been on the hillside next to the road. There is a culvert that crosses under the road. On our side it is covered by a wire screen, and the goats haven't seemed to bother it. Apparently, last night Ginger (the doe J is taking to the fair in a week) was overcome by curiosity and worked at the screen until it was off. Then she crawled in. I'm not sure why. She stopped half way and spent the night (judging by the poop that had accumulated). I tried to coax her forward, but she would not move. I crawled in to see if she was stuck and she jumped up onto her knees and started moving forward again. So I went back to the other side of the road, crawled in on my belly and led her out. Not fun, but everyone is OK.
There was a rather lovely puffball growing in the lawn this morning. I'm always amazed at how fast they appear.
