Today we wrangled and bathed all of our baby goats — what an adventure!  Now we know what our parents felt like when we didn’t want to take baths when we were younger.  We first had to wrangle them all into the barn, and then one by one, we held them in our laps as the rest of the group hosed us (yes, both us and the goats) and washed them with soap.  We also cleaned their hooves with tooth brush like tools, and finished with a nice cool rinse.  It was messy, and a lot of work, and one of the goats even ran from us for a few minutes!  Troy, Sabina, Willa and Julia helped to wrangle him back into the barn.  Who knew bath time was so messy and tiring, but could be so much fun!
