Goats are a nice, quiet pet to have. They only talk when my daughter comes outside and isn’t paying them enough attention. Very low maintenance, easier than the goldfish, really.
Last week I was in the kitchen and heard a terrible scream. It took me a few moments to realize it was coming from the goat pen. I went running out there to see what was attacking them.
There was no bobcat (yes they live right here) or coyote in the pen. Tayet found a hole in the fence that was big enough to get into, but not big enough to get out of. She and I wrestled for a few minutes but we got her free. I am happy to report she has not stuck her head through that particular hole again. Quick learner.
Scout was there to oversee the whole production. I think this face means ‘a little to the left’.
They made a new friend recently. A large one.
This is Payton. She is our neighbor’s dog and she likes to sneak to our house for a visit. I say sneak, but really a dog her size doesn’t need to ask permission. What are you going to do if she doesn’t agree with you? I have tried pushing her out of my way – she doesn’t budge. She doesn’t wear a leash – she wears a bridle. Just kidding. She is very stealthy. I was sitting on my patio messing with my phone. No music going, very quiet. I looked up for a second and was nose to nose with her. I am so glad she is gentle. I think she could fit my whole head in her mouth.
This picture doesn’t do her justice. She is beautiful and HUGE!
