Taffy is rolling the spool.
The goaties get to come out in the yard from time to time, but only under supervision. They are highly destructive to vegetation. All trees within their reach will be decimated, all shrubs destroyed, especially pines, lilacs and Caragannas, and flowers, hanging baskets and other tasty morsels demolished. They will find their way into grain bags, bust through wire and otherwise do almost anything to get grain. So, they are only allowed out when watched carefully. Over eating grain can cause death from bloat and they, like sheep, do not quit until they are too full or the grain is gone. Recently the sheep got into some grain. Fortunately, there was not much there, but it was enough to make about 6 sheep quite ill from stomach runs for two days. Yet, given a chance, they would be right back and eat the grain again as soon as they could. Goats are the same with grain. They are not fed grain, nor are the sheep, only grass and hay.
