A Picture Is Worth...
The horizontal boards on all walls of the barn are to keep the girls from pushing through. Goats are notorious for this, and will walk along at a tilt, rubbing on the walls.
This is a tunnel entrance into the milking room, just behind the stand. One of the diaper wipe "blankets" is drying before being taken underground by the mouse on the left.
The girls have their artistic side, and the salt block is a work in progress. I did not notice Ruthie approaching as I tried to find an angle that would show all the nooks and crannies of the block. That's her shadow on the right. I should have known that anything out of the ordinary would arouse the girls' curiosity, and just as I took the photo, I was ringed by goats wanting to know what I was doing back in the pen (I'd already taken the milk buckets out). Nineteen thought he'd like to try photography and nearly got the camera out of my hand.
