I Need a Goat

Jarom's cousin Marci was babysitting a baby pygmy goat for the day. I couldn't help myself, I had to rush over and see it. I don't know what it is about goats, pygmy's in particular, but I ADORE them. I've always wanted a goat.

See how tiny she was, that's just your average lawn rake behind her. So little, she was like a cat. ADORABLE!!

My city kids had a heyday playing in the chicken coop. (Kate called it the "chicken's hut". I've since told her it is a "coop" she now calls it the "chicken poop".)

Such a novelty to play with the chickens.

Hey Carter, there's something on your back.

Awwww....look at those cute kids.

I'm not sure if the kids or I had more fun. I think maybe it was me. :) I really want a goat! Think my neighbors would mind? ;)

I'm with you. I want a little nanny to be a pet/ milk goat. *sigh* City limits determine that it will not be so....

I agree with Kate Kate. Chicken coops should be renamed Chicken Poops. Baby chickens and chicken coops kind of gross me out.

How fun! I think chicken poop is a more fitting name. I think you should get a goat. Think of the adventures you could tell.

I have this huge desire for backyard chickens. And a goat would be good too. We were actually joking about getting one tonight. One especially trained to eat weeds and ivy :-)
