No there hasn’t been a massacre here on the farm, I’m referring simply to the title I give to warm, sultry days like this when the goats laze about for hours at a time in between intense bouts of grazing.
As I go about the farm I look at my animals regularly. Whenever anyone is lying down, head on the ground, flat out – I always make a note and come back a few minutes later. You never know – it could be someone unwell or even dead. It does happen. The problem is, “dead goat” behaviour is the norm in weather like this so I’m up and down to the fields more than ever!
Still there’s no better sight than a field full of dozy goats and kids!
