Herding of the Goats

The 5th(!) Annual Herding of the Goats onto the Balds took place Wednesday June 20.  #610's 3-day old kid (born on Father's Day) got special treatment and was carried by 2 grandkids out to Jane Bald where the first paddock is located.  

The day went well with 1 exception:  2 goats (#215 & #709) turned left / north on the Jane Bald ascent and didn't make it to the top.  I suspect the volunteers spooked them when they tried to get them back on the trail.  Luckily, they found their way back to their friends and are now safely back with the herd.  Thanks to Bill Barksdale for capturing the special day on camera!
