Delayed post:

Last week, Cory threw a party at the farm and two of the baby goats were the "guests of honor". He started the fire in the pit at 5:30 am. After a few hours of burning, he laid green cypress branches over the coals, and then the goats, wrapped first in aluminum foil and then a moist cotton sheet. Then more cypress branches and then a few inches of dirt.

After several hours, Cory, began checking the temperature, and then decided to clear off some of the top dirt and build a fire on top.

At about 7:00 pm, they were ready to come out of the ground:

After gorging on scrumptious goat, plus lots of other yummy stuff that Hannah made, there was a doubles ping pong competition in the barn:
