My goats

Kind of a dull weird week so far. Started off sunny and inspiring but today is a down day. Gloomy. I am feeling under the weather. SO to try and cheer myself up I am posting one of my favorite hobbies.... my goats. I have posted these four legged, heart warming, grass chomp'in wonders in the past but its been a while. In the photo there is Nora, Vanna, Tina, Gilda and Stumpy #2. The only goat we got to name is Stumpy #2. The rest all had names before I purchased them. Each of them have their own little personalities. And they are VERY friendly. Well, all of them except Nora and Stumpy. Nora is a kick. She is will do silly things that crack me up but you cant pet her. She was not handled enough by humans when she was small. And Stumpy is an old fart (the one on the far right). We rescued her about 2 years ago and I am certain she wasn't loved as much as she should have been. But all in all they are all sweet pets that bring me total joy and happiness :) SEE, I feel better already. Ya, goat therapy!!!!

Just read a news story on goat's milk icecream. I'm wondering, have you tried it? I do adore goats, would love to have some.

No, I have not tried that Sue. Bet its good! Although not edible I love love love goats soap. Try that! Etsy has a lot of sellers that make wonderful goats soap. So creamy! Thanks for stopping by!

I L-O-V-E your goats!!! Stumpy ...that name just cracks me up! With these girls running around your backyard, how can you be gloomy :) Makes me want to come for a visit! Pets do make us smile :)
Someday, I'm going to have to post a picture of my cat, Squire. He's the only cat we have left, but definitely has the most stories!

{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}} to you my friend. I want your goats... I bet they are such a joy. A few years back I was in an accident that left me in loads of pain for 6 months. The one thing that got me out of bed was going outside to hang with our ducks and chickens. These lil furry and feathered friends of ours do bring sooo much joy.
