The Belmont Goats

A Belmont Goats day

It's been a few months since the Belmont Goats moved to North Portland's University Park neighborhood. Longer trip for me, and I hadn't done that for a bit. I corrected that today, and hung out with the herd. Weather cooperated — partly cloudy, dry until I was almost home a few hours later — and I, as I'm wont to do, got photos.

One more video from The Belmont Goats today...

...this time of Juniper, the chicken that the herd adopted because somebody dropped Juniper off at their original Belmont location. (Disclaimer: DO NOT DO THIS, it's stressful on the animals and unfair to them, and other animals that have been dropped off at Belmont Goats' homes have had to be re-homed.)

Juniper was in a playful mood today, as I understand it. Burrowing, to her, is fun. She's also well-fed at the moment — this morning one of the people who works with the Goats pulled up a stump the goats' people don't usually pull up for Juniper, and there were some particularly long worms she was able to eat — and she's been laying quite a few eggs lately. I hope she (and the rest of the herd) keep doing well.
