When we arrived, we were greeted by Karen, who founded the place along with her husband. She gave us brushes and let us get in with the pygmy goats and brush them. The boys and I were really excited to bond with the little goats but Will asked if he could just brush them from outside the gate. Too funny. After everyone laughed at him, he realized that maybe that was a silly notion and he, quite uncomfortably, came in with us. Here we are letting the goats get used to us being in there with them.
This first one was going to be used in the goat enclosure.
This one was built for the doves.
Cooper took his work very seriously. And no complaining! That's a first for him. :)
So, am I glad I skipped my run to go and volunteer at Friends in Need? Absolutely! A wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning. We were blessed to see the wonderful work they do there and already have plans to go back this Thursday!
