WHO is in The Chicken Tractor?

It was an exciting day on the Farm. Most days are exciting in one way or another but this day was particularly exciting.

It started with this...

Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you! That is a rather large hole in the side of the chicken tractor. What could have caused such a thing. Certainly not one of us! We are such angelic goats, aren't we?

I think a closer inspection is necessary.

Oh my! That is not a chicken I see in there is it?
It is a goat.
A rather large goat.
A pregnant goat.
A Jillian goat. This is not good.

I don't think the chickens were too thrilled with this situation either. They took to clucking and dancing around on the outside of their home.

The male person decided he had to take quick action! Remember, there is GRAIN in the chicken tractor and too much grain is not good for us goats. SO HE CLIMBED INTO THE CHICKEN TRACTOR HIMSELF.

All I have to say to that is, "Ick."

He crawled along and erm, urged Jillian out ...

Little by little

Until she was finally back in the goat pen where she belonged.

What a baaaaaad goat!
The male person was not happy. Not happy AT ALL.

Come back tomorrow and see Harry learn to stealth graze.


  1. Oh my what a hoot this post is! Stopping by from SITS!

  2. There's no fighting those pregnancy cravings, they can get the best of anyone! I'm sure all is forgiven.

  3. I stopped by from sits today. I just had to laugh at this post. My Mom loves raising goats and they do the funniest things. It's so like a goat to get in that tractor! Makes me smile.

  4. Those goats... It's always something, isn't it?! ;)

  5. The poor male person! I found this all rather entertaining!

  6. I wanna know more about the male person's feelings on the matter, and how he fixed the tractor, and how the goat MADE the hole!

  7. What? That pregnant goat fit through THAT hole? That takes talent!

  8. What a naughty goaty! I hope the man purrson has recovered!

  9. Bad, bad Jillian! I wonder how she managed to tear such a huge hole in the chicken wire. I suppose with GRAIN as an incentive she would work and work at it, wouldn't she!

  10. When I read that there was a goat in the tractor, I expected to see Harry or Kevin, not one of the older ones. Silly Jillian!

  11. So funny! LOL at the pic of the chickens outside staring at Jillian goat! hehe

  12. I just love this blog. So glad you dropped your card on mine! :)

  13. Wow it really is a goat. You had me tripping when you said "goats don't like rain." Lol!

  14. Katherine - thank you for stopping by my blog. I am glad you found it amusing.

    D'Anna - hmmm, I guess THAT is one way to look at it. But the male person was still not happy.

    KC Mom - thanks for stopping by. Yes, we goats are rather, erm, interesting.

    Cute - well, if it wasn't I wouldn't have much to write about now would I? heh heh

    blueviolet - he was a little stinky when he came out of there.

    Cici - the male person's feelings on the matter are not printable in a family blog. Well, we goats like to rub on wire so we rubbed until there was a small hole and then Abby butt it a bit 'til the hole got bigger and then Jillian opened it more with her hoof. It was collaborative.

    Pooba - Yup! she did. And she is getting quite wide!

    Reese - he took a nice shower and he felt - and smelled - better.

    Split Rock - we will do just about ANYTHING for grain around here.

    Beaded Tail - I don't blog the half of it!

    Meri - oh no! It was Jillian. Never a dull moment around this Farm.

    Dashery - they were not happy at all. They really did a chicken dance. heh heh

    Casto - I am glad you like my blog. I try hard to make it fun. I am a hard working goat.

    Katie Lane - Of course I am a goat! Didn't you see my cute little face?

  15. Baaaaaaahhh! Very funny read, in deed. The goats rather remind me of my offspring, the childebeasts.

    Reading your blog almost makes me want to find some goat roomies...but I don't think my townhouse homeowner's association would find that too amusing. I have a hard enough time convincing them the childebeasts ARE human and should be allowed to stay. xx

  16. I think Jillian was framed! She'd never do such a thing...

  17. well, i guess jillian IS eating for two!

  18. She's pregnant. When I was pregnant if there was peanut butter Cap'n Crunch behind a fence I would have chewed through it too.

  19. Oh, you make me laugh each day! This was a HOOT! I love the chickens on the outside looking at the goat on the inside. If you put the goat in there--they'd have a FIT. Too funny!

  20. Awwww...who could be mad at that face !

  21. Pure naughty pregnant goat!!! Bad bad goat! That is obviously one lady with no respect for fencing. AgggggHHHHHH!!!! I am totally with the male person on this one.


Maaaaaa away....
