Special Treat

Our weather has warmed up, and that means all those pumpkins in the garage thawed out. Well mostly.

The human decided to give them to us. She chucked them over the fence, and we got to eat them.

Bambi and I both enjoyed this.

Whoa! Ice cream headache!

I'm so glad we got this thaw, so we could have a treat.

Those pumpkin insides are so yummy!

Snow Bath

With all the warm weather (really, it wasn't just me), the snow is getting soft. What do you think those geese decided to do?

Take baths.

They get all twisted up in knots.

I don't know how they untangle those long necks.

They really make the snow fly!

How do they dry off? Flapping their wings and making a cold breeze.

I don't think you'll ever find me taking a snow bath!

It's Warm

It's warm here.

In fact, I'm feeling in heat.

The human won't let me through the fence to see the boys, because I'm retired.

I'm not sure I like this being retired right now.

It's nice to know that I haven't lost my touch with the guys even though I'm retired.

I've still got it!

White Out

It was very white outside this morning. The old chicken pen looked almost solid.

I admit it was kind of pretty.

Our hill was white on white on white.

I wonder how long it's going to look like this.

It makes the cold a little better when it's pretty.

My Present

Do you know what this is? It's my Christmas present.

I asked the human to take pictures so you could see how special it is, and she decides to do a photo shoot right after giving us hay???? Really, we do not give up our hay eating for a photo shoot. I might have to get a new blog photographer.

My new collar isn't purple (she said she couldn't find a purple one), but it does coordinate nicely with Bambi's new collar.

It's official--she's a keeper!

I'm so happy that my Bambi gets to stay here forever!

White Christmas

The human was right to pick up the food pans.

We had a lot of snow, all day on Christmas Eve. We ended up with about five inches of snow.

Lucy Goose was looking through the snow for good things to eat.

Where did her legs go???? Silly goose.

That human gave our hay to the cows.

MJ doesn't look too happy with the snow.

I hope you all had a great holiday whether it was white, brown or green (I wish ours were green).

Wimpy Bob

Do you think he's going to sit on the rock all winter?

Sniffing that piece of roughage??? I'd be eating that.

Oh, it should be me eating it. Cat's don't need that stuff; goats do!

Silly cat. That doesn't look like a good place for the winter.

What? When he does this, the human actually opens the door and lets him in.

I have to stay outside (in the barn). The human picked up the food pans tonight after we got done eating, so we are probably going to get a lot more snow. Oh, how long till spring?

Mail Call

I got my package from Pricilla in the mail today.

She sent me three bars of her wonderful goat milk soap! It smells so yummy, but the human wouldn't take it out of the package so I could eat it.

I suggested the human use it to scrub all the goose sludge out of the cattle tank, but she gave me the human stare of death when I suggested that.

Well, they are mine aren't they?

Thank you so much Pricilla and Publicist! You really should check out all her great soaps.

Mother-Daughter Dinner

I usually have my dinner with Bambi. Tonight, I got to enjoy sharing a tub of hay with Joe.

How nice to spend time with family during the holiday season.

Slippery

Flower is picking on me.

Can't hold.

Hoof sliding.

Slippery ground.

"Maaaaa, Help!"

I'm not turning my daughter into some little princess. She needs to dig those hooves in, and stand up for herself!

Scary

It was very scary this morning. The red trailer came and they loaded up some of the kids. The human said they were going off to explore the world and find their own forever farm. I don't want Bambi to go find her own forever farm.

I'm so happy she's still here. If you look behind us, you'll see my girl Pebbles still has her daughter, Sugar.

Bekka, my grandkid, is still here too. Her twin brother, Flash, is the only little billy goat left in the buck pen.

Those humans chased Vinnie all over, but she's too fast and slippery, so she and Pistol are both still here. They're my great-grandkids.

Maybe the human just knows to always keep my descendants!

Winning and Scarlet

I'm a winner! Pricilla the spokesgoat for Happy Goats Soap had a wonderful giveaway, and I won! I won some of her wonderful goat milk soap. You really should check out Pricilla's blog and soaps. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Look at that silly Scarlet.

She had a feather stuck on her nose. I think it tickled.

More Snow

We're getting more snow. I wish I could eat those flowers, snow and all.

The whole hill is white.

I'm so glad the human is feeding us hay.

But, I wish I could eat that too.
