Goats on a Field Trip

On March 8, I gathered up Starlight and Paprika, bathed them, trimmed their hooves, and loaded them in the truck. They were going on a field trip to Wheeler Elementary school to meet the children. This is the second year I've done this. My dear friend teaches at that school and it was Farm Week.

The children got to hold and pass around a goose egg. The learned about goats, how many chambers are in a goats' stomach, what they eat, where they come from, and why people keep goats. Paprika was a little nervous so I held her on my lap, but this was Starlight's second trip there, so he was friendly.
