Who's There?

The publicist looked out her window (isn't it amazing how many of my posts start out that way? I don't know what I would do if the publicist ever STOPPED looking out her window) and noticed Jillian  looking off to the West. Intently.


Then Mallory hopped up on a spool and started staring too. Hmmm...

She wondered what could be causing them to be staring so.

Then Emily and Jeffrey joined Jillian on the little goathouse.

Even a rooster was staring. Hmmmm, WHAT could it be?
Why a visitor! 
In the field next to ours!

Dusty the horse has come to pay a call.

That or to graze on the grass growing in the field.
What do you think?

Dusty is one of the horses that lives across the street. Dusty is not supposed to be over in this field. Dusty has a HUGE field for grazing across the street.

Bad Dusty!

Jillian was very surprised to see a horse right next to her goat pen!  This is the first time Jillian has been here for one of the Great Horse Escapes. Abby and I have been through them before..... 

Dusty is a very pretty horse but also a very erm, challenging horse. She has been known to sneak over AND EAT OUR HAY! 
Can you believe such a thing?! 
Her owners soon came and took Dusty back to her corral and things calmed down in our pen too.

I hope you enjoyed seeing our visitor as much as we did!

Tomorrow:  Goatucation

The publicist has asked me to tell you that her giveaway for 100 Custom Postcards is ending tonight on her blog so if you want to enter you had better hurry! Mmm, I'd bet postcards would taste good.



  1. That was a lot of excitement for you goats! I would stare and stare if I saw a horsie in my field, too.

  2. That was too cute how they were all looking!

  3. You farm never seems to have a dull moment.

  4. when i was little we had 2 pet ducks. if someone so much as set a foot on our street they let the whole neighborhood know about it. animals are so much smarter than peoples!!!!

  5. Dusty knows where the tasty treats are! We could tell you all didn't particularly welcome her visit to your farm!

  6. Dusty is a beautiful horse, even if he is challenging! ;o) Funny how you always know that something isn't quite right just by looking at the animals. Same thing here - only lots of times we never do figure out what they're looking at...even with binoculars.

  7. hey...thanks for adding my button. i didn't even look this morning. it was doughnut day. i made pumpkin doughnuts with maple frosting and i was covered from head to toe with flour. i'm doing another giveaway on mrs. b's on halloween day!

  8. I love how they cock their heads to look. So adorable!

  9. I think Dusty is a great name for that horse! He does look dusty!

    That last picture of all of you staring just cracks me up.

  10. OMG, a trespassing horse. And to think he has the nerve to eat YOUR hay. I think his family needs to look into fixing his fence so he can't escape. Although, as long as he stays away from your food, the excitement should be good for all of you.

  11. That Dusty! I bet the goats could take him.

  12. My horses were doing the same thing today only running toward some invisible invader, running away, then running back again with their heads up like camels. I COULD NOT see what was freaking them out... *sigh* horses...

  13. Daisy- I am sure you would. Much like I would be shocked to see an alligator!

    blueviolet - we goats are an early warning system!

    Jen - you got that right!

    jaz - I am glad you are smart enough to know that. heh heh

    The FrogBag - thank you for visiting my blog.

    BeadedTail - we don't like when other animals eat our hay!

    Split Rock - don't tell the publicist but sometimes we look and there is really nothing there. We do it just to confuse her.

    jaz - the publicist says, "mmmmm, donuts."

    Carolyn - we are cute, aren't we?

    Cute - I am glad I could make you laugh.

    Anne - I am glad you are on our side!

    Frogs - Goat power! Goat power!

    Julia - gremlins


Maaaaaa away....
