Love is in the air!

Oh yes indeed!  It's that time of year again .. when a young goat's thoughts turn to love.  The dark nights and drop in temperature has kicked all those goatie hormones into action and the barn is now resounding with the noise of goats in season ...

The Boys are a few miles away at the moment, keeping the male kids company .. but the change in weather has also brought them into season as well.  Interestingly enough, it seems that the male goats also respond to change in day length and temperature.  Much unpleasant behaviour and gobbling noises are now evident in the boys' house.  It's stinky beard time again!

Our first boy to work this year is young Fenn and he has been shipped up to the main goat barn and given his own special batchelor pad right next to the milkers.  This allows him to strut his manly stuff in full view of all those lovely girlies .. and they get to chat to him through the fence.

So, with his first group of ladies, here's young Fenn:

And there's always an eager queue on the other side of the fence ...

But some people are just completely oblivious to Fenn's charms.  Betty was totally unimpressed with the whole thing .
