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

Boy I cannot believe it is taking me three posts to show you what the publicist does in a day. And I am only showing the highlights! She is very busy and I am glad we goats have her to take care of us. We left off yesterday as we were all running up to the barn to go in for the night. At least for us that is a very fun part of the day because we know that we will soon be getting our apples! You know how much we love apples around here. Right now we are very lucky as a neighbor has brought us a big box of windfall apples and they are very tasty!

Yum! Yum! Apples. Don't they look good?

But I am getting ahead of my story. The boys are already in the barn by the time the publicist lets us girls loose. They are very excited to see us as we dash into the barn. They peer out of their pens and stare as we go by. (Hi Luke you handsome hunk of goat you)

We run into the barn and we all know where to go. Jillian and Mallory head into their pen and start munching their grain.
Abby runs into our pen for her grain
Kevin goes into his pen

And I get milked

Little Harry has his grain in the barn for now. Kevin can be a little bit testy when it comes to his grain so the junior goats have to be separated for this part of the night.

After I am done being milked it is Abby's turn.

Then we get our apples!

Nom, nom, nom!

After we eat our apples we settle down to eating our hay and the publicist leaves for the night.

Sometimes when she is walking back to the trailer she sees Stinky the cat chasing mice in the mulch pile.

I think she likes to go back and do something called reading. And relaxing. After she cooks dinner for the male person and does the dishes of course. If there is time. Then she goes to bed to wake up the next day and do it all over!

(The publicist said she wants to apologize for the pictures being fuzzy. The male person said it had something to do with exposure and light and then the publicist went into some kind of blank stare and lost all ability to understand what he was saying. She is never going to be a photographer. She hopes you get the idea.....)

Come back tomorrow to see Who is King of the Hill...or Queen!


  1. Hahaha! Boys always enjoy watching the girls, even for goats!

  2. Thank you, Pricilla, for taking the time to share your "A Day in the Life" series. I'm envious! I'm sure it's a lot of hard work, but it looks like fun, too, tending to all you adorable goats and putting up all the veggies from the garden.

    I wonder if Gus and Pru would eat grain?

  3. sounds like a very fun day. my mom just goes to work, how boring is that? thank you for sharing your day with us. i know you are glad to have those adorable goats to play with every day.

  4. I am telling you, you goats have it pretty good over there. I feel for the publicist. She is like your personal slave.

  5. Cute photos nevertheless! Love the kitty.

  6. I hope you all appreciate the publicist and how hard she works!

  7. I'm pretty jealous... I sit at a desk all day. My big events include meetings and getting up to refill my water bottle. Hah! Goats are way more fun. Hard work, but looks like a good time.

    Thanks so much for sharing all this!

  8. it might seem like the same thing every day but the goats always do something to make each day unique!

  9. After all of that, she has time to read?

  10. Good Lord, the publicist is busy indeed! I think she spoils you, but don't tell her I said that. I'd hate to be the reason she starts backing off on those delicious apples.

  11. Daisy - isn't that Luke a gorgeous looking goat? I think so anyway.

    JD - I have found that the Farm cats stay away from our grain but they do eat our hay and graze our grass. Harumph!

    Grumpster - there are times the publicist wishes she could just go to work again. Really.

    Julia - she grumbles things now and then about being owned by the animals on the Farm. I wonder what she means...we are nice goats.

    Debbie - Stinky is the cat I butt the most. She gets in my way!

    Aunt Vicki - I love the publicist. I give her nudges on hug butts all the time.

    Cute - I think Abby would butt a desk. Michael too. We are just natural born butters.

    jaz - bwahahahahaha!

    Reese - barely. She complains about this all the time.

    Nanny Goats - thank you for visiting my blog. I am honored. She wouldn't dare take our apples away. She knows we would ALL butt her then!

  12. I have a feeling the publicist doesn't even get weekends off does she? She sure works hard but hopefully she does get a chance to read and relax from time to time.

  13. i soooooo want to start a goat collection but my chow chow collection of one is against it!!! don't rip pages out to make copies for me. i will just research it on the internet. but thanks for the offer!!!!

  14. Oh, I love everyone getting tucked in for the night! It looks so comfy in there. How lucky you are to have such nice digs.

  15. Beaded Tail - the publicist takes care of us every day. The only times she doesn't are the days when her headaches are really bad.

    Pooba - I see you understand the publicist's plight

    jaz - I suppose you will just have to keep coming to my blog then. heh heh

    Lin - we are very lucky goats indeed.

    Frogs - she takes good care of us!

  16. Now that is the perfect culinary cap on a day. Lucky, lucky goats!


Maaaaaa away....
