Something in the Air

I don't know what it is but there is SOMETHING in the air these days. How can I tell, you ask? Because we are all feeling a little bit frisky. Maybe it's the cooler weather. But whatever it is Jillian and Mallory were really going at each other today. The publicist let us out for a graze which was a lovely surprise.

We were over by her house munching on whatever little green sprouts we could find when all of a sudden the two of them just started butting heads and doing the goat stomp. It was some show!  

 Jillian was in especially fine form.

But Mallory wasn't going to let her be the only one showing some moves. Look at her here; her hind legs are flying!

 They battled up the ramp.

They battled down the ramp.

They sure kept Abby and Matthew entertained. (Doesn't Matthew look mature in his new goat halter?)

And when it was all over...they shared a log.

What a crazy way to spend a graze. I told them so and Jillian chased me back to our goat pen. But I showed her who was boss!

I am queen of the spools!

These goats just need to remember who is head goat around here.


Tomorrow:  The chickens strut their stuff


  1. You goaties do look feisty today! I enjoy a little bit of cool weather, too.

  2. Great pictures! I think it is the time of year, all my goats are being feisty and silly too!

  3. Goodness, I don't think I've ever seen them like that!

  4. Frisky goats make for the best entertainment!It must be the moon or something because our goats are the same way,even Doodah and she never plays much!

  5. Yes indeed. It must be the cold weather. My little ones are racing all over the house on crack or kitty meth. What ever it is if the hubs and I don't pay attention we have a head on collision with the children racing around the corners with no regard. The stress is overwhelming so I resort to the mallomars, but it may be time to switch over to the peanut butter crisps. Peanut butter sticks to the ribs and this cold weather makes me want everything on my ribs!

  6. Lily the labradoodle seems wild and unusually energized in the cooler weather. I'm glad to know she isn't the only one. And why can't we humans have this happen?

  7. the cooler weather does the same thing to me. i am butting anyone that comes near me! do goats ever hurt each other when they butt?

  8. Pricilla, you are the queen of the goats! I can't believe their was all this roughhousing happening. Maybe everyone is jealous of your date with Luke last week.

  9. I think everyone is preparing for a long winter and cabin fever. Hobbes has been going out in the cold because he's so darned bored in the house. Silly goats. Silly cat.

  10. That was hysterical! It was like a blow by blow of a boxing fight or something.

    On a random side note: Your PJ ad for MoldMarket.com -- it now rotates, and I am JUST NOW realizing that this is soap molds. I thought it was something to do with mold/mildew stuff! Haha.

  11. Frisky seems to mean fun! There always seem to be fun going on on your farm!

  12. Haha! Never a dull moment in goat land!

  13. Daisy - it's good to be feisty some times isn't it?

    Jennifer - thank you. The publicist likes to let us run when she can.

    blueviolet - I am glad I could give you something to smile about.

    Melodie - we are pretty funny when we get going, aren't we?

    Margo - I do often hear the publicist saying something about bottling our energy.

    jaz - not usually. Once in a blue moon they might but nothing serious.

    Anne - I think you might be right. Luke is my studmuffin.

    Lin - sometimes it's good to be silly.

    Cute - heh heh. Maybe that is why Mold Market changed their ad.

    BeadedTail - we aim to entertail!

    Pooba - dull is boring!

  14. Just stumbled here from somewhere else. You seriously have a blog dedicated to your goats?

    That is very cool.

  15. FRISKY GOATS!!! Very fun to watch. I think that is a goooooood sign showing happiness in the goats!


Maaaaaa away....
