Silver Buckling,

OK, y'all, someof you been clamouring for baby goat pictures. Well, follow the link to Flickr and ye shall receive. Right now (Jan 15, 2007) they're at the head of the FlickrStream, but you may also click on the Animal Portraits set for the group of them.

Well, a few pigs and a horse and Herself snuck into a few of those photos.

What wonderful photos! Of course from you they could be nothing else - but admittedly you had some exceptionally charming models!

I see you have a Junebug! My favorite Nubian I named Junebug. She was so smart!

Those kids are JUST PRECIOUS!!! My lord, I thought *I* was bad with all of my critters...how many animals do you have on the farm? Maybe I should be calling you Old McDonald:D

Lessee
Eleven bovines: 3 heifers, 1 bull calf, 7 cows. Some of whom are due to become Beef this year. (This ain't a petting zoo!)

Thirty-six goats (counting kids)... no, wait, last night's goatmamma means 38 goats.

Five hogs, not counting the two piglets. They're too small to count, and SowMamma may still lay down on one or both. We will be in fresh pork soon, too.

Two horses.

Nine chickens... actually, four chickens, five roosters, but we have more roosters than chickens because Herself gathers cock feathers for sale at SCA. Also, that's temporary. Need to refurbish chicken accomodations and then the balance will shift again. Fresh Eggs!

Four border collies, seven Rodent Control Engineers aka cats.

Excellent pics! I want me one!

Which? A photograph, or a goat? Photographs are a lot easier to deal with, let me tell you.

Oh, I've wanted a goat for years. But I know that the reality would probably not live up to the fantasy! Also, my landlady would not approve...

Re: You're really good with a lens
Actually, goats are very fussy about what they eat.

They will taste anything. But very fussy about what they eat.

Re: You're really good with a lens
Is it true that azaleas are poisonous to them?

Re: You're really good with a lens
Yes, MrsBoss will not let the goats anywhere near azaleas and like we don't have many but there are some around us.

Well, that's a silly question. They are our kind of goats! We own them!

Yes, Squrrl, they're our kind of goats. They're also 'Florida Scrub' i.e. cross between Nubian, French Alpine (hence the amount of black & white), and Pygmy.

Houdini: Hey, D00d, glad to meet you!
Smudge: What's up, Jett.
Squrrl: Wow, you mean you live in the City? Mamma Mudge and Houdini went to the City, and they say there are lots and lots and lots of people and growliebeasts. We don't get many trespassing cats here, we've got our own. But we got lots of teh eveel squrils! Rodent Terrorists!
