Goat pulling against its leashNow that Punkin has moved on to his new home, I'm finally able to get back to tethering our herd in the morning while I garden. Artemesia was thrilled at the opportunity, but our little doeling wasn't so sure about the idea of collars and leashes.

She had a small fit, pouted for a while, then decided mimicking her mother was probably a better way to utilize her time. I figure by the end of the week, Aurora will be just as good at being tethered as Artemesia is.
