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

So today I continue to regale you with how our beloved publicist spends her day. I and the other goats feel she should spend her whole day just tending to our needs but the publicist seems to think she has a life outside of the goat pen. Hmmmm, I am not so sure about this but we will see.

We left off yesterday after the publicist had put us in our pens in the morning. We then get to relax, munch on some tasty weeds and bask in the sun.

Aaaaah, it's a goat's life.

The first thing the publicist does then is have a nice cup of fresh ground coffee that the male person makes for her while she oversees me writing my blog. She is much happier after her coffee - but don't tell her I said that.

She had lots to do this day starting with all of this in from the garden

She already had a lot of zucchinis in her refrigerator so she shred some, she cut some up in discs to freeze and she made 6 loaves of zucchini bread. Most of them went in the freezer for later. I am sure you humans think this looks yummy but I would rather just have the zucchini!

The beans get blanched and frozen in bags. There are snow peas too but they are hidden under the beans. Same with the broccoli. The publicist doesn't have to buy any vegetables all winter long because of how much the male person's garden grows.

Then she unmolded her cheddar cheese and put it out to dry. She already has a Colby curing and will be making lots more cheese thanks to the fact that she is babysitting some goats for the next week and a half and will be getting lots and lots of milk.

Then it was time to let us out for our mid-day graze and check our water. Michael said "hello" in his usual fashion. Silly Michael!

The publicist then went back in the trailer to finish working on her vegetables. And to label and package some of my rich soap. I have trouble with that part because of my hooves.

Then it was time for us to back into the barn. Yay!



Do we look excited, or what?!

The publicist opens the gate and we all run up to the barn as fast as we can... (the boys went up first otherwise the picture would not be useable in a family blog)

Be sure to come back tomorrow for the last installment of A (Good) Day in the Life of the Publicist. I'll bet you know how it plays out....

Don't forget my soap sale! If you buy a Harry the CowGoat Soap your entire order will be 15% off! What a great time to stock up on my rich soap!


  1. i don't know how the publicist could even think about doing anything but playing with all of you all day! throw this question into the goatucation did the publicist get involved with goats? and tell her i would love a cheese recipe!

  2. I'm jealous, it looks so beautiful there this time of year! Still loving your blog, it is the first thing I read as soon as I turn on my computer every morning! Keep it up!

  3. I think the publicist works hard! But it looks like fun work.

  4. The publicist does work hard! If I was her, I'd have a hard time not hanging out with you cute goats all day... ;)

  5. Oh my gosh...I want to live with you goats; you all have quite the life! I would LOVE to know how to make that delish-looking cheese...can you write it up for us, Pricilla, PLEASE??!

    I know it might be hard, given the fact that you have hooves...maybe the publicist can do it??

    I really love that Michael...he has such a cute little grin! :)

  6. I don't blame you, I know I'm much happier after a cup of coffee! And thanks to you I am craving zucchini bread!

  7. Whew! I'm exhausted. How does she get all of that done everyday? When does she sleep?

  8. Jaz - the publicist would love to play all day but it seems she does have to get other things done. I will ask her to send you the cheese recipe

    Marlene - I am glad you like to read my blog. It makes all my hoof typing worth it.

    Daisy - she does seem to have fun but sometimes we goats get on her last nerve. I know this 'cause she says," GOATS YOU ARE GETTING ON MY LAST NERVE!"

    Cute - you can come here if you want and play with us goats.

    A.Marie - I will ask the publicist to do a Goatucation on how to make cheese - how is that?

    Pooba - the publicist NEEDS her coffee. She is glad you liked her zucchini bread. She wants to know if you want a zucchini.

    Reese - after we goats go to bed. Tune in tomorrow!

  9. The publicist is a multi-talented, organized hard worker! But, with being paid by getting to be with all of you, she's got a great job!

  10. That's about a week's worth of activity for me.

  11. That line of little goat butts and tails is so cute!!

  12. I am so impressed with how much food your grow/make on your own. I would love to be able to do that. It must be so satisfying.


Maaaaaa away....
