    You know you live on a goat farm when your goats know what a goat grumble from you means, and your human kids have no clue.
    When you tell your goat to sit and she listens but when you give the same instruction to your dog he thinks you are crazy.

    You've been disbudding kids and smell like burnt horn and have to pick up the grandkid from work at the local donut store. You walk in forgetting that you are pretty pungent and embarrass her to death! :heehee:

    Oh my gosh yes. My Dad had chronic inability to differentiate between "Towels" and "Rags". Used a powder room hand towel to clean motor oil off of something once. He's gotten better though since Mom made a designated rag spot. I guess kids and guys just think a towel is a towel.:lolgoat:

    Wait, you mean there are towels that are supposed to be used just for towel stuff? :omg: (I'm the bad one with towels, good thing they are my towels). I bought a bunch at an auction one time, like 20 hotel big bath towels. Pure white! That was then, with hard well water, muddy dogs and birth stuff, they are grayish now! But still thick and thirsty.

    (Did you know.... ? That using fabric softener sheets on towels in the clothes drier makes them less able to be absorbent. The softener coats the towel and it won't absorb as much water!

    You stay up all night with a cup of coffee waiting in the goat barn for your doe to kid and your guests still cover their noses while passing a rutty buck but you don't mind. :heehee::p

    You jump in the car to go to the store and realise too late you are still wearing your gumboots from cleaning the barn and you still have hay in your hair.

    Your English teacher tells you to write an informative essay so you write multiple pages on Myotonic Goats. She still discusses it with me to this day and it was years ago!

    You go to work on Monday and everyone asks why you werent at the bosses birthday gathering? The one the business was paying for you & 1 other drinks & dinner. You say..oh the one that required Sunday dress? I was busy in the birth barn. Have 2 does ready, and a 3rd doe delivered twins. Awww they say. That would only take about 10 minutes. Why didnt you just come late? It was free! I just smile & say. I was busy! :bonk:

    When it gets hard to put down one of your animals and talk to them for an hour before the vet arrives.

    You know....by smell and always having to check your nails before you go out to dinner mine always have something under them. before we got out side by side buggy, every car had a smell. Horse poo goat poo guinea cage poo but always a smell. Also my grocery lists are always feed stores first and mornings are taken by chores but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    You know you live on a farm when hard work can still bring a smile and make you feel good all day :)

    How about this one: you know you live in a rural area when the local high school superintendent/principal doesn’t allow kids to wear muck boots, clean or dirty, and if you wear them, you have to leave them at the front doors and get a change of shoes.
