More Goat Lending

Today, we had some humans come and visit. They didn't spend much time loving me up (I did get some petting), but were very interested in the kids. Look at that Meg getting all the attention from the grandpa.

Cinnamon was having a lot of fun playing with the little boy human.

Of course, it looks like the little boy human was enjoying Cinnamon as well.

Harley was happy to take a bottle from the little girl.

Cinnamon loved them all!

At the end of the visit, Tayet and Scout left with them. Doesn't the little girl look excited?

Scout and Tayet were scared to go, but they are excited to spend the summer with this great family. They'll come back home in the fall. You can see them in their new home at Faking Fabulous. You can also read about the name Tayet, which my silly human didn't even know.

On a totally unrelated note, Bonnie and Blaze no longer have a forever farm. I'd tell you more, but the human won't let me say anything not nice about her species on my blog.

Acrobatic Kids

Bonnie, Blaze, Xavier, and Cinnamon had fun on the fallen tree.

Blaze is very far up in the tree.

Here come Bonnie and Xavier to join her. Cinnamon is being a bit more cautious, staying down low.

Oops! Bonnie slipped with some help from Xavier.

Don't worry! She's not going to fall.

All better. She's a perfect picture of graceful goatie balance.

That close call was enough for her though. Now she just has to slip past Xaveir to get down.

Bouncy Cinnamon!

Now Blaze has had enough and slips past him.

There she goes.

Xavier wants to know where all his playmates went.

Look Xavier! Blaze is down there!

So much fun to play together!

Don't try that at home, but do visit Farm Friends Friday and Farmgirl Friday.

Harley

You might remember that Harley, Stormy's girl, got sick. Then the human started giving her a bottle. Well, Harley is feeling better. Other than loosing some fur around her eyes and mouth because of the fever, she's perfectly fine!

Since the sun came out today, she was feeling well enough to play on the picnic table.

She was very bouncy.

Here she is with triplet sister Haley.

Then they went to the stumps to play.

We're all so happy that Harley is feeling better.

How Many?

How many babies do you think Scarlet is carrying?

I'm guessing three, but the human says, "No more triplets!"

Rotting

The human doesn't understand why I am laying in the compost bin. She thinks that's horrible. I say it's comfortable.

Look at Minnie on the hard concrete. That doesn't look cozy.

Muffin and Jetty are on a hard picnic table, but nobody thinks that is a silly place to lay.

What about Maggie stretched out on the hard ground. Okay, she looks pretty comfortable.

These three (Pistol, Dolly and Vinnie) aren't looking so cozy.

I must say, my warm soft spot here does attract the flies a little bit.

Think you can find a better place to nap?

An Apology of Sorts

I finally talked to the human about not getting to go into the big pasture where all the green stuff is. She said we can't go in there because if all of us goats went in, we'd scare the babies living in the cottonwood tree.

She said the great horned owl babies might fall out of the nest if we scared them.

Since we couldn't go in there, she decided to redo the fence back there. That way we wouldn't get confused where we are supposed to stop. Of course, by the time the fence in done, the owls will be bigger.

We've been hearing all kinds of noises, and now we know what it is.

Personally, I think she didn't get the fence replaced on time and now she's using those owl babies to cover her tardiness.

What do you think? Owl babies or slow working humans?

Pasture Predicament

Those moms and their kids get to be in the nice green big pasture.

The cow and ox are in that nice green big pasture.

We're stuck in the little pasture that is almost out of food.

I want to go in the nice bright green pasture to eat.

Another Bottle Baby or Two

The human has been feeding all kinds of bottle kids because of three sets of triplets and Annie ignoring one of her kids. Guess who's finally taking a bottle!

Harley!

After she and mom were both sick, the human started babying them.

Harley finally decided to take a bottle.

Here is her mom checking things out (probably relieved).

What!!!!

Is she really trying to drink from that bottle?

Is the human really letting her drink from the bottle?

I suppose it will help her feel better too. There's nothing like goat milk to promote good health!
Too bad it's not real milk.

Be sure to visit Verde Farms and Dandelion House for more farm posts.

A Friend Says Hello

Our friend wants to say, "Hi!"

Isn't it nice to have someone that likes to hang out with you? And he eats dog food, not mine!
