Below the railway gang

When we first moved here there were 6 adults and 1 kid in the gang of goats below the railway line. Last year, if there were any kids, they did not survive the harsh weather. This winter there are once again 6 adults, all looking healthy, with an equal split of male to female. Maybe we will hear the patter of tiny hooves in the spring.

Males have the larger horns whilst the females’ are shorter and more cylindrical.
