A (Good) Day in the Life of the Publicist - Part I

The publicist laughed at me when I told her I wanted to do a blog post called "A Day in the Life of the Publicist." She said it would take more than one post to cover what her day was like. Especially if it was one of her good days. She is sick sometimes and doesn't do much some days. But on her good days she gets a bit done. Of course her schedule runs around us goats - we are the most important thing in her day! So here is what she does:

She gets up and comes out to get us goats. But Black Cat is visiting so she runs back to the trailer to get him something to eat.

Then she comes into the barn where we are waiting for her. Less than patiently...Mallory jumps up to say hello

Luke peers out of his pen

Michael head butts his pen - he is a touch testy in the morning!

Abby and I just stay calm because we know we will soon get grain

Harry and Kevin are happy to see the publicist

The big boys go out first - Luke waits patiently for the publicist.

The boys get their grain

Then they go for some hay. Hmmm, do you see Luke's head anywhere? I don't. He must really like his hay!

Then Jillian and Mallory go out- but they have to explore the barn first. They do this every day!

Then out they go. Run, run to the gate.


Yummy! They even share nicely.

Oooh it's my turn for grain. Do I look happy? Or psychotic?

I get milked

Abby gets milked

Doesn't the milk look good?

Then we all go out to our pen.

Then the publicist gets to do non-goat things. Can you imagine? Tomorrow I will continue with how the publicist spends her good days. I promise there will be more of us!

Before you go today I am a very proud goat. My friend Karen at ecokaren wrote the nicest things on her blog about me and my rich soap. She interviewed the publicist and everything. My picture is there. It makes me feel like a special goat.

Don't forget about my soap sale! There are Harry the CowGoats in a number of scents listed in my shop.


  1. what time does the publicist get out of bed? it sure looks like a busy day. i am almost embarrassed to ask this question (not much embarrasses me though) but i will ask anyway. my daughter told me she saw a show about goats on tv. these goats become stiff as a board when they are frightened and fall over. this sounds like a joke to me but i am wondering if you have ever heard of such a thing?

  2. Hi there! That is so funny that jaz commented on those frightened goats that fall over. My teen daughter was just talking about those yesterday...she said that they are called "fainting goats." Sounds very interesting to me! :)

  3. I've heard of those fainting goats!

    I really enjoyed seeing part of your publicist's day. I think it would make me happy to see all your sweet goat faces every morning to greet me.

  4. I wonder what Abby might have to say about the publicist doing non-goat things. What else could there be??

  5. Ummmmm....PSYCHOTIC! No offens meant.

  6. Ooooh. It's a lot of work to live on a farm. My Mom and Dad Beans used to have one. They say it is very rewarding though.

  7. Wow, talk about hungry goats! ;)

  8. jaz - the publicist gets out of bed around 7am. We goats are attuned to the light. She can sleep a little later in the winter. They are called fainting goats. They do that as a defense mechanism. If the animal preying on them thinks they are dead it will leave. They are rather funny.

    A.Marie - they really are funny to watch. I don't think I would want to be a fainting goat though.

    Daisy - I am sure your mommie is happy to see you and Harley every day!

    Aunt Vicki - we all wonder what she is thinking. It should be all goat, all the time!

    Cici - I do get pretty excited about my grain and I have been told I make some pretty funny faces. Most of the pictures didn't come out which was a shame.

    Reese - it IS a lot of work for the publcist. But is is worth it in the winter when she doesn't have to spend lots of money on vegetables and fruit.

    Meri - well, we have 4 stomachs to keep full!

  9. So what does the publicist do with the goats milk???

  10. The publicist seems to be very busy, but it looks like she takes really good care of all of you. And everyone looks very happy to see her. I will have to remember that when Abby comes to visit the Small Town.

  11. You all better be very nice to the publicist because she is very sweet to you.

  12. Wow that sounds like a full day for the publicist I cant imagine that there could be more to do. But then again Abby probably begs to differ.

  13. Pooba - well they drink some of it, she makes my rich soap and she makes cheese. You will see one of her cheeses tomorrow.

    Anne - We are indeed very spoiled goats. Abby is a pain in the butt. Or a butt in the pain however you want to think of it. You can have her in the Small Town and you don't have to send her back!

    blueviolet - most of us are very nice to her. It's that Abby that causes all the problems.

    AB - oh there is much more to come.

  14. Looks like you goats have the publicist wrapped around your little hooves. Give her a break every once in a while. Really.

  15. I was playing games online however for reading this post more interesting thanks for the share please do keep it going great job....Loveing this.

  16. Thank you for sharing this! I'm looking forward to reading parts 2 and 3. I'm sorry the publicist doesn't always have good days, but this day looks really fun and happy. I'd love to wake up and do goat things!


Maaaaaa away....
