Yarita Leaving Home
#1
My little girls have flown the nest - they have just finished their third day out with the shepherd. They could have gone out with him a while back but he was taking goats out at night and bringing them back in the morning and there are too many Jackals around for my liking; but this week he started in the mornings, so they leave at about eight and come back at around seven in the evening.



The first night they were knackered, could hardly even eat their hard feed, little Ellie lay down half way through and the other three didn't finish theirs either. Today, they have eaten all their food and walked back tonight at the front of the herd - I would guess there are around fifty goats and sheep in the herd, with more goats than sheep..



A lady from the village came round this morning and asked me something about whether i wanted a male goat to go out with the flock, to which I said yes, and paid 20 leva (around £8) I have no idea what happens now, I've not been asked before, for all I know I have just bought a male goat for 20 leva!!!!

aw how sweet their first outings. I take it the sheperd takes everyones goats and sheep? or have you struck a deal and he usually only takes his own?

I think this is the shepherd that takes the goats out, I am not quite sure why there are sheep in the flock because I know another shepherd that takes out sheep, there is also a shepherd that takes out the cows.



I will try and take a picture tomorrow of them coming home

Aw your kids leaving home!
If they can be taught to hate, they can be taught to love.

Their first day at school meeting the herd. Three of them have mums in the herd that they haven't seen since they came to live with me, but they did call to each other as the mums went out each day

Little Ellie showing a clean pair of heels along with Frankie and Daisy not quite sure what to do - Mollie is in the middle there somewhere.



I walked up with them for the first two days as they meet another herd from the top of the village and all join together and I didn't want my four disrupting the join but all is fine now and they go up alone

My neighbour told me yesterday that there is a male goat going out with the herd maybe from today onwards so l have paid for the right thing - bit of a relief!
