This was a fun experience watching several baby goats running around and playing in a large field. Adults were in the same field as their offspring, a little quieter and slower. Parents and children are the same across the species I think. All across the species, kids seem to be bright balls of energy.
This was a few years ago when I drove out to Middleburg to meet some friends for lunch. Thankfully the traffic wasn't heavy. Normally the town has a lot of traffic going back and forth, but this day it was much quieter and it made for a pleasant ride, country roads all the way. I was looking for a sign on the main street of Middleburg, which would tell me to turn left towards The Plains. It is a lovely ride and about half way to the town I saw a field of goats, very active goats, at least the kids were active. I pulled into a gate and parked for ten minutes, took my photos and enjoyed all the frolicking. I always plan to arrive early and would have plenty of time to meet my friends.
They were adorable and here are a few facts about goats.
