On 22nd March, when I first photographed two of these kids living alongside Wootton Road at the point at which it is about to join Tiptoe Road, they were just four days old; the other two were expected the following week. On that first visit, Lizzie Knight, having seen me photographing the young goats, had invited me into their field. This morning, her husband, Richard, did the same. Two of the animals display a penchant for climbing, and two others believe the forage is greener on the other side. As far as I can tell, those with the white saddle markings are the younger ones.
As I type this draft, sleet is the rapid precipitation spattering my windows. Later we experienced some sunshine.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s delicious, spicy hot, pasta arrabbiata, with which she drank Hoegaarden and I drank more of the Recital.
