    I have been watching RunAround's two nigi does in the kidding stall, on Mare Stare, for the last 4 hrs or so. Nothing much happening, but its amusing me lol

    First, one goat (who I named Blimp) got up and I thought she was trying to chew her way out of her prison, just kept munching and pulling on the wall.

    Then the other goat (who I call Skinny) got up and butted Blimp away - let me have a go. So Skinny started working on the escape attempt - chew chew chew - lets make a break for it!

    Then I realised there must be a hay rack there :oops:

    After that, the great Battle for the Corner began. Both does felt they had to sleep in the same corner. Much head butting and ramming ensued, but Blimp was victorious, and lay down, which accentuated her blimpiness. Skinny was definitely a good sport about losing, because she sat down with her and snuggled.

    The peace was not to last long, because about half an hour ago, all the goats decided it would be time to wake up. The tennants on the outside of the kidding stall thought it would be fun to butt their heads against the wall of the kidding stall - the wall that Blimp and Skinny were sleeping against. Blimp just kept sleeping, but Skinny woke up, and promptly got in touch with her inner kid. She raced around the stall, bounced up to see who was on the other side, and tried to wake Blimp up by butting and chewing on her.

    At the moment Blimp is eating hay and Skinny is asleep in the Favourite Corner.

    Small things really do amuse small minds.

    I did the same thing when i first found that link. Sat there and watched for a half hour while everyone slept. Kept running through my mind that i had homework, and dinner to make, and I really shouldn't sit there wasting my time, but it was pretty addictive.

    Lol, you should have seen when Bonnie's boy slipped through the cattle panel and confused Skinny and Blimp.

    And when Dreamer got her head stuck in the cattle panel, couldn't figure out why it got stuck, finally got it unstuck and proceeded to shove her head back through and get stuck again. :doh:

    lol now that would have been funny, pity I missed it. I did see you put the extra in there, and pmsl cos I thought it was a huge pen, but once I saw a person in it I realised just how little it was, and remembered how little the goats are lol
