Winter is Here - Ugh!

Well, it had to happen. This is Montana after all, not Arizona. 

It snowed. Not a lot but still....it is the beginning of many more snows to come. As I have said before I AM A NIGERIAN DWARF GOAT. I like it warm. This cold stuff is for the birds. Like penguins.

When we came down from the barn we all ran into our goat houses. This is what the publicist saw. You can see Jillian peaking out and where Matthew when sliding down the side of the little goathouse. Silly Matthew! And you can barely see me trying to hide from the snow. I am no dummy!

 I sat in mine just looking out at the grey weather and watching the snow fall.

Mallory sat in hers waaaaay in the back eating her hay. You wouldn't even know she was there except you can see her ears.

Matthew, still a kid, doesn't much care about the snow yet. He was out running about. He eventually came up to his nanny's house to have a bit of a munch. He has to keep eating to fuel all that energy!

Abigail went in the big goat house and was eating so quickly her head was blurry. Jillian was there too but she was busy looking outside to see what was going on.

Now Luke, sometimes he is a little odd. I love my studmuffin but he stands out in the bad weather and bellows. When the sun comes THAT is when he goes in his little goat house.  I really wonder about him sometimes.

Silly Luke. It's a good thing love is blind.
I hope we don't have more snow for a long, long time.

Tomorrow:  I am in SpokesGoat Mode


  1. I was looking into possibly getting a goat and snow and cold was one of things I wondered about.

    Tell the publicist that she needs to bring you inside when it snows :). She could let the goats rule the roost (maybe the chickens could come too).

    I would say I hope it warms up soon, but it wont happen until spring. Keep warm and protected.

  2. I'm glad you have cozy little goathouses filled with warm hay!

  3. so sorry goaties...but i am doing the goat dance here because we are supposed to get a bit of snow on thanksgiving. i lOVE snow!

  4. We love snow,especially The Boy! I am pretty sure our goaties wouldn't like it though!

  5. Luke you're too funny you silly guy!

    Looks like everyone is having fun at least :)

  6. This will be my first winter with my ND babies...well, it will be their first winter, too, come to think of it - and I was wondering how they'd deal with snow. If it's the same way they deal with the rain around here, then they probably won't be coming out of their house for the next few months! LOL
    I love Luke...you have to appreciate a guy who does things just a bit differently than everybody else! :-)

  7. I don't like the snow either, oh no I do not.

  8. I think we're due for our first snowfall on Thanksgiving!

  9. I'm glad it isn't just me who doesn't like the cold and snow. Well, I like the first, pretty snow, but I hate driving in it. Somehow, all the folks in Chicago forget how to drive in it over the summer. Ugh.

  10. I'm still enjoying a few last scarlet leafed trees. Virginia is the state where you get your four full seasons.

  11. oh dear snow already!

    bundle up fellow goaties...

  12. Those goat houses look great to cuddle up in on a cold day. Good thing you all had a graze the other day before all this snow!

  13. Are you going to dress them up for the holidays?

  14. Good thing you went grazing the other day before the snow came! Luke really is silly but we wonder what he sounds like when he bellows.

  15. Anne - I think if we and the chickens moved in the publicist would move out!

    Daisy - we are very spoiled here on the Farm.

    jaz - it takes all kinds. heh heh

    Melodie - when the publicist was younger she loved the snow but now that she is an old goat like me, well....

    Alexis - my studmuffin is a bit odd but he is cute.

    Farmgirl - we tend to hide in our goathouses in the snow. It's really only dry rain when you get down to it. heh heh

    Tammy - thank you for visiting my blog. I am with you on the winter thing.

    blueviolet - I am so very sorry.

    Lin - it looks pretty enough but it's erm, COLD!

    Carolyn - here in Montana you get grey, rain, grey, a bit of sun, snow and erm, grey.

    Texan - it snowed again today!

    Cute - you are so right. I can't wait for Spring and yummy green weeds.

    Frogs - we goats don't take to being dressed....

    BeadedTail - he is loud, squawky and relentless

  16. No snow for us yet... they say tomorrow. Gray rain today.


Maaaaaa away....
