Goats


Today my Beloved and I met our younger son and his fiancée and went for a pub lunch. Afterwards we went for a stroll and met some goats, who were keen to eat grass from our hands. I'm not sure why, they had plenty of it under their feet.

They weren't nearly as impressive as the goats on jjdebenedictis' blog. Who knew goats could do that? Well, I didn't.

GOATS! It's been ages since I've seen goats! Sounds like a great afternoon.

Awwwww goats are brilliant!!! Goats are really sociable animals - they love being petted and fussed over - really and truly!! A goat by itself is one lonely goat - they're like donkeys - they need to be in pairs or in groups and love attention! Awwwww!!

Sorry - I love goats and just think they're brilliant and am just so happy that they got to meet lovely people like you and your family today! Take care

Sounds like a very good day to me!

Talli, it was fun!

Kitty, they did seem to all huddle together. They had a huge field but they were all in one small bit of it. Thank you for your kind words!

Robin, it was indeed!

My two pygmy goats are not nearly so talented or brave. A little dew on the grass in the morning has them clambering onto their porch which they will not step off of until the grass is thoroughly dried out. They will eat cookies and crackers out of my hand, though if I don't have something for them, they will be peeved and butt me to tell me just how peeved they are.

I dream of sweet goats like the ones you met... How wonderful that they were there to make your outing more fun.

Phoenix, your pygmy goats sound pretty cute too, even if they don't like to get their feet wet. And who can blame them! They certainly sound like they know their own minds, anyway!

Goat are very social animals. If hand-raised they will follow you around like puppies, try to talk to you and seek human contact.

Sha'el, I didn't realise that goats were so friendly.
