They lounge around in the stall entrance blocking the gate, chewing their cud in the good shade while the goats bleat and stand a few feet away in the slightly less cool shade next to the entrance.
It’s pretty funny. Of course, when I try to take a picture they slowly get up and file out into the paddock, as far as they can get from the barn. And they do make out like they meant to get up right then and go have a nibble.
In duck news, the weather’s been swinging wildly from cold to superhot and according to the internet, this can stall laying for a few days to several weeks unless the ducks are moved to a more controlled climate setting. It could also be the youth of the ducks, the most regular laying is after 22 weeks for just about all breeds except the very largest. So we may just not see any more until they are all older by a few more weeks.
At least one child has had chicken pox most of the week, and I am wiped out, so that’s all for now.
