In the mornings, the goats are moved a short distance from the barn to the outside pen; before sundown, they’re returned to the safety of the barn. Sometimes they follow, but more often, they run ahead to the desired destination.
“They” can refer to all five of the goats, but in most cases, “they” equals Blueberry, Meels, Moey, and Jubilee. Minnie, on the other hand, is generally going her own way. She’s usually exploring and amusing herself (her favorite “toy” is the riding lawn mower parked in the shop) while the others have surrendered their freedom in exchange for their breakfast or supper. But I shouldn’t be surprised that Minnie is a non-conformist: hers was a breech (backwards) birth!
