Another Word from the Herd

160 - Copy

I dropped of an organic box of vegies for a friend, greeted by an old wagging-tailed dog and a chorus of high-pitched maaaaaaaaaaaa’s.  They were such a cute lot, I decided to come back with my good camera and do a photo shoot.  It was also aerobics since to get some perspective, I needed to keep moving.  They kept running after me, thinking, I suppose, I had food.  I don’t think they would be that excited to be milked.

So this is what I want for Christmas. 🙂

    A little goat like that tried to eat my skirt once. Maybe fabric attracts them? They are adorable though and will keep your garden denuded. 🙂 Better than a lawn mower they say. 🙂

    I love the handsome, gentle, almost smiling faces.

    adorable! you could always buy a pygmy goat, they are so small, same size as a dog. put a leash on and no one would know the difference, maybe. 🙂

    Goats make me smile; thank you. You might enjoy Eden Hills Farm:

  6. You wouldn’t, Lilly. Your neighbours would indeed be maaaaaad. goats usually leave the lawn alone and eat all the shrubs.
    They say you can’t make a fence to keep sheep in — and goats are even worse. I read about one spunky kid that figured out the latch on the gate of their pen, so he’d crawl under the fence and go open the gate for them all to exit. The farmer was always wondering how his goats kept getting out, until he saw for himself one day.

    lol! They are soooo cute 😀
    Some neighbors of mine have goats they use to keep their lawn mowed. One of my daughters is friends with a girl whose family raises goats…they have been bottle feeding 3 ‘kids’ since the nanny goat died a few weeks ago. Those kids are so adorable, just like these in your post – they follow everyone around (yes, probably looking to be fed) and I just love the sound of “baaaaaaa”…it reminds me of laughter 🙂
    Thank you for sharing!

I would love to hear from you!
