Kid Goats

It is August and the dry winds heralding the end of the cold season have started blowing through. The ground is dry and patched with good rains only expected in a month or two. If the rains come after Oom Pauls’ birthday, which is 10 October then is said that it will be a good wet season for the farmers not that they have much rain to start with. From my memory, winter is normally ended with a huge hurrah as a cold snap usually arrives first week in September, after that well summer begins.

But for now these baby goats which have never seen the rain, I wonder what the first drops will be like for them. Would those big drops of rain cause an explosion of dust as it hits the dry earth and in the background a typical summer thunder and lightning just to frighten any kid goat?
