Kids and kids

The Chinese Year of the Horse has galloped past and the Year of the Goat is born. I have some experience with goats as my maternal grandmother used to have one or two in Jaffna at our ancestral home in Thavady.
As young children we found the goats and their young (kids) more approachable than the cows and calves- mainly due the fact they were smaller than the cows and not so intimidating.
I've noticed many times, young children being fascinated by young goats or sheep and especially enjoying feeding them.
So since kids love kids, it prompted me to draw the above illustration.
