Dancing Goats

After trimming the goats' hooves the other week, they seemed a little frisky from being penned up. Two of them, Gabe and Simon, began prancing and playing in the yard together.

There was some jumping:
 And head butting:
 More jumping:

 And they both were jumping and knocking their hooves together:

While it appears that they are crashing into each other it's actually very well choreographed.  They rise on their hind legs and come down, bumping heads in such a gentle way.  I call it goat dancing.  As soon as Tawny's hoof trim was completed, he joined in too.  Goats are very frolicsome and great fun to watch!  If they weren't guys we could put tutus on them.  ;-)
