I Thought Goats Were Funny

I was out walking and grazing - I am sure you now realize that grazing is one of my favorite things to do. Grazing and basking in the sun are probably two of my most favorite ways to spend a sunny day. But I digress. I was out the other day and I went to visit the horses across the street. I enjoy chewing my cud with the horses; we like to share hay tales. Well I was chewing said cud and all of a sudden one of the horses decided to have a dust bath! Surprised the goat gas right out me!

He really went at it. Twisting and turning.

Doesn't he look happy?

Until he finally decided he was dusty enough. Then he got up.

Now, I am the first to admit a good dust bath feels great but give a goat some warning.

I must have jumped 10 feet. I trotted myself back to my pen to rest after that.It was more excitement than I could stand. Little Kevin lay down with me which was very nice.

I hope you all have a calm and quiet Friday.

I know I am starting to sound like broken record, but I am excited about my contest! Be sure to sign up for my newsletter. All who sign up through May 16th will be entered into a drawing for THREE BARS of my rich soap. I say it again, I promise not to spam you. I just don't have time for it. But I do promise to send special discounts for newsletter subscribers only.


  1. Pricilla, you don't sound like a broken record...or if you do, it's a good thing! What if someone who reads your blog has alzheimers, (I can't spell it!)and loves your soap, it reminds them to sign up! Also, it reminds me about MORE questions about the giveaway. Like, when do you tell the person that they've won?

    That horse looks very funny, rolling all over the place!

  2. Horses are a little bit silly! When I go out on my harness, sometimes I like to roll around in the dirts, too.

  3. That must have been quite an adventure. It is great that you get a chance to meet and visit other animals. Our dog loves to go visit other animals in the neighborhood.

  4. My dog, Callie, would like that too. Bur normally after she did that, she always ended up smelling like poop. eeewwwwwww... And I had to take her to the groomer for an emergency bath.

  5. Cici - I will let the winner know on May 17th.

    Daisy - To be honest..I like to have a good dust bath myself.

    Anne - it is fun to get off the Farm now and then.

    Carl - oooh sounds stinky!

  6. And dogs roll in smelly, poopy stuff!! Ick! I love how happy that horse's face is when he's doing that.

    LOVE Kevin!! That is just an adorable photo of him and his mom!

  7. Carolyn it was something to watch.

    Lin I suspect that what the horse rolled in wasn't exactly sweet smelling...
    Thanks. I think Kevin is pretty cute myself.

  8. Now P, you must get the name of the rolling substrate correctly. It's a mud bath when gobs of clay sticks to the horses back. When the horses do a dust bath they shake off and a fine powder floats in the air. I am sure you will see the difference next time.

    And can I enter your contest twice? Hee hee... just kidding!

  9. Thank you Julia for teaching me that. I don't like mud much as it contains water and we goats are big fans of water for anything but drinking. I think horses are a bit odd...


Maaaaaa away....
