I just felt the need to share some of my goat's funny little stories from here lately, especially since I have been feeling really down and trying to decide how to take my goat keeping from here. I need to be reminded why I love them. Let me start with my special girl, Hope. She STOLE MY OREOS! That sneaky little cow. I had them out on the grass and I was quite blissfully eating my oreos when the phone rang. I set my oreos down to get the phone, which was just a few feet away, and somehow Hope TELEPORTED across the field and ate my last two oreos! Then had the nerve to run away, and I SWEAR she was laughing. Brat. Today, little Oreo finally went to a new home with a GREAT lady. He's going to have a little Pygmy girlfriend and be treated like the spoiled little pet he is. When I went outside to play with them while waiting for her to show up, Snowflake, my most WILD doe, actually stepped in front of me and stopped. I automatically went to shoulder scratching (the key to every goat's heart), and Snowflake let me not only give shoulder scratches, but run my hand down her back, and scratch behind her horns. She is SUPER belly shy, and did jump when I reached under there, but instead of running away, she let me keep petting her. I stopped before she got tired of it, but was very pleased. And that's not all! The nice lady who was picking Oreo up came into the pen, and my goats, instead of being suspicious of her, all came over and tried to eat her clothes. She even petted Snowflake! :shocked: I am seriously flabbergasted! Just a few days ago, I had to sneak up on Snowflake to catch her. And today she let a stranger pet her without flicking an ear. :clap: No matter WHAT I decide, the goats I have right now are not going anywhere. They are my pets, and Hope is a heart pet. I just need to figure out if I want to keep breeding. I am without a buck and not sure if I want to invest in another.
