Down in the Valley

Well, it's not really a valley but a goat can pretend, can't she? The publicist and male person have a very nice piece of land for our Farm. It is flat on top, with a steep bank down to the river. There is also a bit of a gully between their Farm and the next lot. We always go down into the gully as part of our daily graze. I call it The Ravine because it sounds so much more intriguing than a plain old gully. Right now there are lots of tasty bushes and weeds and grasses down there to eat. You can see Jillian is having a good munch on one right here

I think she is really enjoying herself. Well, she is eating for two!

Mallory looks a bit jealous and seems to want a taste of Jillian's tree. Hmmm, I will bet a little goat fight ensued.

Is that a little white goat I spy?

Kevin and Harry love to go exploring. I think they spend more time running around than they do grazing. But kids will be kids.

After much eating of delicious leaves it was time to head back up the hill. I love our view!

Of course we stop for for some grazing along the way.

Little Harry seems to like to play hide and seek.

All in all a very nice way to spend our afternoons. I hope you liked seeing how we spend some of our time.

Tomorrow is Wordless Wednesday


  1. It really is beautiful where you live! And you are so lucky to get to wander around and explore and have fun all day!

  2. I wish I could spend my afternoon stuffing myself with tasty treats and enjoying a view of the river.

  3. It's nice to see that they have an ever changing environment for munching and playing. :)

  4. Sure looks like a valley to me. Of course, my wife often refers to me as being a goat in one way or another (with most of them being derogatory). Sorry.

  5. Absolutely gorgeous. You are so lucky!

  6. I love reading about the goats. :)

    How do you keep them from wandering away from you? It looks like they're pretty free to roam and I'd be worry about them getting lost.

  7. It's nice to see the goats AND your lovely property. You make me very jealous to see all that wide open space.

  8. A whole day of grazing in the beautiful country? Sign me up.

  9. That second photo of Jillian is just beautiful! Well, they're all beautiful, of course. That is indeed a lovely ravine, and you are a very lucky bunch of goats!

  10. a perfect goat day!!! what happens in winter?

  11. You live in a very beautiful area! Your lucky to have so many places to explore and have snacks everywhere you go! Is that a lake? If so, does it freeze in the winter so you can walk on it?

  12. I'd love to play around in such a beautiful place all afternoon! Such lucky goats you all are to have that gorgeous gully...er, um... Ravine. :)

  13. I think I want to come back as a goat.

  14. Daisy - we are very lucky here on the Farm. I don't think we could ask for anything more.

    Carolyn - erm, I thought you did. heh heh

    blueviolet - the neighbor is now nice enough to let us graze in his yard too so we get to go over there too!

    FishHawk - I find that hard to believe. The publicist says the male person sometimes SMELLS like an old goat but I don't think that's the same thing.

    Reese - we are indeed spoiled. You should come visit and meet the Farm cats.

    CastoCreations - we know where our food supply is. We don't wander too far and there is fencing on both sides that you don't see.

    Lin - you are welcome to come visit anytime. We have an RV hookup.

    JennyMac - I know! We have the life!

    JD - I even got to eat your fetus carrot. It was yummy.

    jaz - we still graze but we don't go as far. We eat hay when the ground is covered in snow.

    BeadedTail - that is the Clark Fork River. We don't go down that far. It is slow moving now, but quite fast moving in the Spring. It does not completely freeze over.

    Cute - sometimes the publicist even gets to lie in her hammock. I think she got in their once this year. She sighs a lot.

    Frogs - you would be lucky if you did!

  15. It looks like there are clusters of blue wild rye on those slopes. Do goats not like rye?? And how do the goats nibblings affect the health of the shrubs down there?

  16. You guys just have too much fun!! And in such a pretty location...I hope you thank your publicist regularly for such a great goat's life!!

  17. What beautiful scenery! Looks like perfect goat land and they do seem to be enjoying it!


Maaaaaa away....
