Maybelline, the donkey arrived at the Inside Outside School Saturday after a really fun game of "Chase and Trailer Tag." She is very sweet, but still wary of the two leggeds. Her goat friends showed up in high spirits on Monday afternoon. Maybelline was a bit disappointed that they were so disorganized, but she tried to be hospitable.
Elsie, the apparent leader of the goats girls let Maybelline know that she would have to earn their respect. Maybelline mentioned that she was planning to protect the goats from coyotes if the need arises, and it would not hurt them to work on their manners. Elsie wanted to know how many coyotes Maybelline has actually ever chased off, but it was not something Maybelline wanted to discuss.
This morning the goats were playing "Queen of the Mountain." Bella won this round. Maybelline did not show any interest in the game, but she had just finished a dust bath and may have had other aspects of her beauty routine to attend to. The chickens have front row seats to all the new activity. What fun!
