    One morning when I went out to the barn, one of my FFs was in pre-labor. We had to go to church - we’d be gone 2 hours - and I thought she’d surely last until we got back. After the service:

    Normal people: “Y’all want to go out for lunch?”
    Me (and JUST me, not the rest of my family): “Well....” and I turn to my dad and quietly say, “I’d like to, but I just really need to get home.”
    My sister (grrrrrrr!) says loudly for all of our non-farming friends to hear: “Yeah, one of her goats is gonna give birth so she needs to help it.”
    Me: long, embarrassed pause followed by blushing :D
    Friend: *chuckling to himself and grinning at me*

    I DID end up going back home right away, and when I did, my doe was in active labor and I had to pull her twins, who were both trying to come out at once. I’m so glad I didn’t go out to eat, LOL.

    I usually don’t say much at all about goats to our non-farming friends, just because they don’t “get it” and they look at you like you’re crazy. BUT WE AREN’T!

    That sound kind of like what happened to me.
    So we were due to go to a friends house for lunch but one of my doe was acting off
    My mother "She's not going to have it today so get you butt in the car"
    Me "Nope she's going to have them"
    My mother "Fine but if I come back and there are no babies you are in trouble"
    A few hours later she call me and asks if their are any babies
    My mother "Any babies(She says with an annoyed tone)"
    Me "Not yet but she is getting there"
    My mother "See I said she wasn't going to have them today"
    Less then an hour later
    Me "Hay mom she just had twin doelings but one of them needed a bit is help feeding"
    My mother "Oh! Good thing you were there"

    My mother doesn't get it at all!

    When Goat people go to Lowes or Tractor Supply they take along their pet goat.

    Non goat people take those ridiculous dogs.

    "Normal" people - oh I just love these soft, fuzzy pajamas. Ahhhhhh

    Goat people - these were my favorite pajamas but it's an unusually cold night for Texas, my girls are freezing, and the legs will make wonderful goat coats. *sigh* Grabs scissors and no longer has nice pajamas but has happy goats.

    These are all just wonderful!!!!

  10. When I bought my buckling, we stopped at TSC so I could fit him for a collar and get a new lead because I forgot mine. We got so many looks lol. Like how could you bring a GOAT into here?? Then a had tons of ppl wanting to pet him.

    I need to randomly bring my weather in there. I bet he'd love it lol

    Non-goat people go on vacation and have a good time. Non-goat people don't stress over whether everything is ok, animals are being fed, and whether or not your hired help for the vacation is managing to milk properly. Hence, I don't leave the farm for more than a day so I don't have to stress.

    Yes! I hate leaving for that very reason. I worry the whole time. Most of the time our "vacations" are goat shows

    I've debating bringing big goats in with me to TSC and the like. We aren't allowed to bring dogs in there due to city ordinance, but nobody said anything about a goat! I have brought bottle babies in with me when I've had to stop after a long day.

    Goats fall under packstock laws. If horses and llamas aren't allowed then goats aren't either.

    It only says "no dogs allowed per city ordinance". Of course they don't even allow dog parks there - glad I don't live in town.
