Elvis Is Still the King

Wow! Good old Elvis the Billy Goat brought $90 at auction, followed by a measly $75 for Scout. Must have been the busted horns.

We'll take the remaining kids to auction after fattening them a bit more, and then see if we can get the grass to grow in the pen.

My baby Spot is now getting an occasional bottle of water, despite having been weaned for several weeks--she just loves to suck!
