The goats have gone. The paddock is empty except for one disconsolate steer. I’m disconsolate too. Although the goats were standoffish and noisy, it was nice to have them around.

I prefer to think they’re grazing on another property, perhaps one with mountain views.

I don’t think they’ve gone somewhere with any kind of views.
