Being with baby goats strangely is not an easy task. We have to dodge their restless jumps all the time. Their rock-hard hooves carry their weight onto us when we sit down on the field: heavy and unstoppable. Yet, there is something simple in visiting and playing with the baby goats. These are the little moments: when they all dash out of the shed to welcome us in, when they give us a surprise by jumping onto our perfectly straightened backs, and most importantly, when we feel their tummy with short hair pulsing, expanding, and heating up in the summer breeze.
