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.

Pictures You Won't See In A Goat Calendar

Do you know why goats smell? Well I do. Ever notice its the bucks that smell and not the nannies? THIS is why...

Do you know what Eddie just did? I bet some of you know. For those that don't...he peed on his beard, his whole face area is tinkled upon. Then they raise their lip up like that and sniff. Why would they do that you ask. Well, its a rutting ritual. Now why the ladies would LIKE this, I have no idea...I don't think they do, but that is what the boys do to get ready to fight and mate.




It seems the tables have turned on Troy for now. Eddie has become the dominate male between the two of them. He had it coming though...he was always hassling Eddie. Turn about is fair play.

My husband is wanting to get a goat to eat the weeds. Had a lady tell us not to get the little ones because they stink. Is that true? Janie

They are beautiful, Eddie has such long hair...just gorgeous!!!  I didn't know boy goats peed on their beards...ewwwwww....I kiss my boys all the time!!!!  Yikes ~ I'll be rinsing & spitting for days now.  Of course ours are castrated so maybe they don't, at least I want to think that.

Ewww.  I've seen the males stick their noses in the females urine stream as well.  You wanna say, if you make that face after smelling something, maybe you should stop doing it!  ;)

I have been around animals all my life, but I've never had a goat. I do have a nephew named Billy, but that's another story. My question is how does Eddie manage to pee on his own face?
