Ultimate Spool Supremacy - The Kids Do Battle, Part I

Today instead of being a SpokesGoat I am a Sports Reporter. I am here to give you a play by play on the next round of Ultimate Spool Supremacy - The Kids Do Battle. Yes, you read that correctly! You are right in that this means that little Harry has learned to jump up on the spools. Since he has learned to leap up there he just wants to play and play and play! And what better playmate than Kevin the goat? They are pretty close in size and age so they are a good match up.

So here is my report. In this corner we have Harry the goat, small but fast; and able to leap.

In this corner we have Kevin the goat, a little bigger, with noticeable horns; and able to hop. Perhaps overconfident.

The opponents bow to each other before the match and agree to play fair.

Kevin comes out strong with a good butt to Harry that almost upends him.

But little Harry is quick and he runs around to respond.

But then, Kevin seems to get the upper erm, horn...

Come back Tuesday to see how the battle ends up! Tomorrow will be Goatucation with a question from The Old Grey Egg from Random Living on a Northwoods Farm- What's your opinion on dehorning? If it's decided to have a hornless goat, what's your preferred method?


  1. GREAT post! What fun they must be to watch.

    And I'm really curious about the answer on dehorning. Ours have their horns, and we've never had any problems with them, but they're very gentle goats.

  2. Hang on little Harry! You are putting up a good effort for being so much littler than Kevin. I cannot wait to see the outcome!

  3. do those spools ever fall over? i sure hope they don't!!! you do know you could charge for admission to watch this. i would be the first in line!!!

  4. I love the first picture. Yippee!

  5. Seriously, how do you get shots of them jumping? Do they jump a lot or are you really quick with the camera? (Obviously, I know nothing about goats...)

    These little goats crack me up!

  6. I'm rooting for the little guy.

  7. We're rooting for Harry (sorry Kevin)!

  8. I can't take sides. They're both so darn cute!

  9. They are a tassel of fun now aren't they. Well I think they are. :)

  10. They are both too cute for me to take sides!

  11. Statch - thank you. I hope the publicist can answer your questions.

    Daisy - Harry is a tough little kid. Don't count him out.

    jaz - the spools are very heavy and they don't fall over. It is very entertaining around here.

    Deronda - thanks for stopping by. I will tell the boys what you said.

    Cute - hmmm, maybe I should take bets. I could buy grain that way. Hmmmm.

    Frogs - the kids jump and leap a lot but the publicist also takes quite a few photos. QUITE a FEW photos....
