    I had to take this pictures.

    I worry about my goats when they are over in our big pasture because there is no shelter. The horses never mind if it rains they just wait it out and keep on eatting. I like the goats in there because really do a number on the weeds growing.

    Anyway, back to why I am posting. I heard a shower start and I thought oh, I better go move the goats back over in the field with the barn. I went to the door and realized they had it all under control. They are standing under our 17.2 hand Belgian and our 15.2 hand Quarter Horse. These guys have lived together since the goats came to live here. They get along great. I never worry about predators when they are with Chantilly (the draft). She does a great job of protecting everyone.

    Sorry for the picture quality, taken out the window and it was raining.

    And now, the rain is over and they are all back to happily grazing.
