The Belmont Goats 4.0

That's not the official name now of The Belmont Goats. They're still the Belmont Goats. The herd (14 goats and a chicken) are now in their fourth home: first was in the Buckman neighborhood at SE 11th and Belmont, on a plot that's been developed; second was a now-in-development lot at SE 91st and Foster; third was the lot next to Wattles Boys & Girls Club at SE 92nd and Harold; fourth is a place between houses and a railroad cut in North Portland's University Park. Offically it's a block west of N Syracuse and Macrum.

Today, because I have sneakers now instead of the disintegrating hard shoes I wore until recently, and because I knew there was a chance the herd would be open for visitors, I drove up to the site. One of the owners was there, finishing a repair and in the mood to hang out with the goats, and that owner let me in.

Time again to share goat photos.
