Goats on the loose

goats on the porch

Today makes the 2nd goat escape so far.

How bad are they when they get out?

Not that bad...Artemesia yells a bit, but they seem fine once we tuck them back in.

You really got me now. I read your blog everyday . But now!!!! I can't wait to get on your blog just so I can see what the goats are up to.

Julie --- You can tell me that again! I only pay attention now when I hear Abigail say something --- I just block Artemesia's endless chatter out. :-)

Kathleen --- Aren't you never supposed to pick favorites? Artemesia is like a lap dog, so I suspect Mark and I both have a soft spot in our hearts for her. But Abigail is a hard-working lady, which is just what our farm needs.

Donna --- Thanks for saying that! I'm glad I haven't bored everyone to tears with goat posts yet. On the calendar front --- unfortunately, we didn't quite break even last year, so no go on calendars this year. :-/

Too bad about the calendar. I will have to keep this one just to be reminded on the things to do list every month. Maybe 2016 will be in the future!!
