About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

Goat Fun

Well I tried to upload pictures to the AOL Album to show Saturdays poultry show pictures but it doesnt want to work right now for some reason. So we will move on to other things for now.

Okay, really now. Who turned on the Winter machine? It was cold here this morning! Supposed to get into the thirties tonight? Didnt anyone tell Old Man Winter it was time for him to bed down now? Someone please inform him so we can get on with some warmer days.

I havent mentioned the goats lately, so I thought I would post a few pictures of the two sillies and a cute video. In the video Troy did something he has never done before...he BANKED off my knee! LOL! You will see this as he comes running at me and you see him bounce and then he is gone. It didnt hurt, but it did startle me! I didnt expect that.

These two boys make me laugh so much and they are great company. They cant get enough attention. Next to a dog, goats are really sweet companion animals. For outdoors anyway. I don't know if you can house train a goat. I don't know that you would want to, seeing as they like to try a taste of everything around them..lol.

I was tearing down an old pen and had these thin plywood planks lying on the ground. They thought it was put there just for them. They like to romp and play on them too because they cant get a grip with their feet so they slide around when they are playing and pushing each other.

Well, enough rambling. Here they are.

(By the way, yes I am slack, I havent took any pictures of Buck Buck, Babe and Beauty together yet, but I will, you know I will. )

I also have a request to fill on the emus, which I will do soon too. They are growing so fast!

That last picture is a bit fuzzy, I guess my hand wasnt too steady.


Well that was pretty interesting. Ignore the multiple alerts. When I went to save, it got stuck...so impatient me pressed save many more times, because thats just what you do when something doesnt work right...right? ;) So then when it did save, it made multiple copies of that entry...smooth eh? LOL

Kelly they are gorgeous - especially the blonde one, wow!!  What spectacular eyes too.  Yes they do think everything is around for them to either eat or play with! The video didn't show up at first but I see now it did so I will go back and watch that now.  It is cold here too and supposed to be in the thirties tonite here as well.  I think mother nature & old man winter hooked up and are playing games with us!!!

I love the video, I had to laugh out loud at the Emus strolling across at the beginning.  They looked like they had a walk on part - zoom right across!!  Your goats obviously adore you already.  Ours are so fat if they jumped on me like that I would be flat on the ground!!  Great video...more please!!!!  ;)

I just love that you have these wonderful animals and they are being treated so well and lovingly by you.  You might be too young to remember The Goat Man but I'll bet your parents do.  He lived with all his goats and slept with them too.  I mean as in snore, not the other way. lol.  When I was little we lived in Senoia and I was about three maybe four and I remember him coming through and was just thought the whole idea was magical.  I'll never forget seeing him with all of those goats as I stood in my front yard with my little brother watching the go down the road.

P.S.  Can I have your snail mail once more as I lost it and I have a surprise/gift for you and want to mail it this week.  Thanks.

Your's are adorable! Great video Kelly...love it.
