The publicist came out of the barn and what do you suppose she saw? Knowing this is a Farm full of crazy goats I suppose all manner of thoughts are running through your heads so I will tell you right now to stop the suspense.

She saw Kevin the goat in THE BUCK PEN!!!! Now, granted Kevin the goat was born a buck but he is technically no longer a buck so he does not belong in the buck pen. But there he was.

Michael the goat and Luke the goat didn't know what to do with this little white goat in their midst. He didn't smell like a buck and he didn't smell like a doe. WHAT was he?

They chased him around for a bit. First Michael chased him hither and yon.

Then Luke chased him yon and hither.

Kevin finally decided this was not a good place for a small white goat and he found the hole in the fence through which he entered. I sure hope he learned to not go in the buck pen. Those boys could hurt him!

The publicist had her share of challenges taking these photos so I hope you all appreciate her efforts for you. The bucks think she is a doe and every time she goes in the buck pen they, erm, mark her. Among other things......


  1. And most people think that only skunks spray! Thank goodness only good photographs and not aromagraphs can be posted on your blog. We had a goat about Kevin's size that went to a new home a week ago, and he is actually climbing the fence in a wedge-shaped corner of the pen by leaning his back against the rear fence and walking vertically up the facing fence. In rock climging, it's called chimneying. In goat herding, it's called a pain in the neck.

  2. Thanks for the photos! I'm sure it was challenging dodging the affections of the boys. Lucky for us you are good at multi-tasking. They probably wonder why you don't appreciate their "passion" for you! Good thing you can run fast, yes?

  3. Poor little Kevin, the buck wannabe. Better get the male person to fix that hole in the fence!

  4. Run, little Kevin, run!

    I'm very sorry, but the image of the publicist in the pen with the amorous bucks made me laugh a little.

  5. To be honest, the image of the publicist in the pen with the amorous bucks is quite disturbing to me. You are probably of the same sentiment as Daisy, however.

    Anyway, I hope the hole in the fence got fixed and Kevin's wire-cutters were confiscated. Of course, I'm sure he denied any knowledge of where they came from.

  6. Like Vicki said, "A buck wannabe!" LOL! Poor little Kevin, he seems to be an instigator, but a happy one that's for sure!

  7. curious kevin!!! the publicist should write a book! he is much cuter than curious george!

  8. ps...maybe this is a good time to use some of that goat milk soap!!!

  9. Oof... be careful in there (even if we do appreciate all the pictures)!

    And I'm with jaz up there -- a Kevin book! :)

  10. Wow, Kevin always seems to be doing something crazy, huh? Are young goats normally that mischievous and crazy or is it just him?

  11. Oh I love Kevin!!! I wish I could have a goat! lol Stopping by from SITS.

  12. Old Grey Egg - sometimes the publicist says some unprintable things when she is in the buck pen. But if you ask me she sure smells good when she comes out of there.

    D'Anna - the publicist says she is glad they have horns. Horns are good for holding and erm, directing their erm, affections if not their spray.

    Aunt Vicki - the male person says he has too many other things to do. The publicist has to get her baling twine and weave some more. She says *sigh*

    Daisy - the publicist thanks you for your support. Although she laughs too. If she didn't laugh she would cry.

    FishHawk - I am sorry you are disturbed. The publicist has been told this is quite common with goats. Especially bottle fed goats. She bottle fed Michael and he is VERY attached to her.

    Donna - Kevin is a little troublemaker all right. He has been teaching little Harry some of his tricks!

    jaz - the publicist is thinking about this but she is quite unsure of her ability to do so. She uses my rich soap all the time.

    Cute - so far the publicist has only been mightily bruised. Her legs are very colorful. Probably because the boys only come up to her knees.

    Meri - they are all curious and want to explore. Little Harry has already escaped his pen.

    Whine and Noses - thanks for stopping by!

    Tonya - I, of course, think goats are wonderful. So does the publicist.

  13. Poor little thing. Doesn't know where to be and gets marked!

  14. I LOVE HARRY! How cute!!! Thank you for the comment on my blog!

  15. I think Kevin figured out he was playing with fire or rather stench and decided he better get out of there. I am thinking he is really smart at this point.

  16. Ewww. The marking thing sounds very unpleasant if one isn't a doe.


Maaaaaa away....
