AW - Spar or train?

OOC Date can be flexible, let me know. AW for one who wants to spar or train... or, do something else that tickles your fancy. Whatever!
Optime | Late Morning | Aug 12 | Fort Kingsbury Training Ring

It was once a rare sight to behold, but now that the goats had been moved to the barn, Howland had been seen with Oda and Gitte more and more often. The two nanny goats roamed out ahead of him, munching on dandelions and weeds as they went. Howland used his pike as an improvised shepherd's hook (obviously, not the bladed part) as they walked, occasionally reaching out with the butt of the staff to guide them one way or the other – but for the most part, it wasn't necessary. The goats loved him, and followed him anywhere. If he changed course while they were up ahead, they would notice and turn and trot after him.

Howland headed into the Fort from the surrounding areas. He had taken the goats out for some exercising and healthy roaming... funny how the two always seemed more energized after they went out than before. But, then again, it followed with his own personal feelings. He felt much better now that his limbs had stretched and the blood was pumping.

Padding brusquely through the gates, he overtook the goats, and as expected they scrambled to catch up to him. It felt like a good day to train; it wasn't as hot as it had been and some of the mugginess had gone down. Without returning the goats to the barn, he went to the training grounds. Oda and Gitte had no interest in the training ring, for no plants grew there because it was so often trampled upon, so they hung back just outside cropping the sprigs of grass and whatever else while Howland began his wam-up paces.
