The Sweet Taste (?) of Pine

As I mentioned before (and given how the publicist keeps messing with my schedule) we goats were given a yummy, yummy New Years treat. It is going to be Valentine's Day before I get to show you these photos!

Mallory loves pine. She went right over and gave it a good sniff. It has a lovely bouquet you know.

Matthew just dove right in and started munching. He is no fool! He knows a good snack when he sees one.

Now that I am pregnant the publicist is treating me extra specially. It's like I had room service! She brought my pine right to my goathouse so I didn't have to go out into the cold. Isn't she nice?

But then Mallory had to come and try and snitch my pine!

The publicist shooed her away and she went and got a drink of water. Silly Mallory!

Of course Abby had some pine too but she will want to tell you all about it on AbbyDay. You know she doesn't like to share the spotlight.

Oooh, rumor has it that the memory card for the video camera will be arriving on Friday. The publicist said something about the slowest shipping she has ever encountered. I don't really understand that but it will be fun to star in movies! I just hope Abby doesn't steal all the scenes.

Tomorrow: AbbyDay


  1. Yummy treats make those cold days a little better! That silly Malory,she keeps forgetting you are the queen of the goat yard!

  2. i think it is the slowest shipping ever too! i want to see the movies!!!!

  3. I can smell the fresh pine from here! Tantalizing!

  4. I'll bet chewing on that pine gives you fresh breaths, too!

  5. Gees, that is the slowest delivery EVER! I can't wait to see the new camera in action.

    Yum, pine!

  6. Visiting from SITS! to say hi and I just love your blog!!
    :)Have a lovely day!

  7. Great blog! Hi there I'm visiting from Sits! Nice to meet you!

  8. thanks for the offer but i have a whole shelf full that i made...hehe! but it was very thoughtful of you! a storm is on it's way and i am sooooo excited!

  9. You might have covered this but how do they digest the needles? Doesn't it hurt coming out again?

  10. now that you are "with goat" do you find yourself craving any particularly strange foods?

  11. I confess... I think you goats kind of have funny taste in treats. Treats to me mean freeze dried chicken, or maybe something salmon-flavored. The only green stuff I like is catnip, and maybe a little cat grass. I dunno about this pine stuff. You all certainly seem to be enjoying it, though! Maybe there is something to it.

  12. It's good to be a pregnant goat!

    (I like the smell of pine, not the taste)

  13. I had no idea you goats liked to eat pine. But all I can think about is what if you get the needles stuck in your throat? And I must have missed the initial announcement, but congrats on getting knocked up, P!

  14. Do you get extra pine since you're eating for two?

    Glad the memory card is going to arrive tomorrow!

  15. Melodie - treats are always good. And Mallory is very silly.

    jaz - the publicist is very impatient too!

    blueviolet - I guess pine to me is like rosemary for you.

    Daisy - I guess it does - I never gave it much thought.

    Lin - The publicist mumbled something about it taking the Panama Canal from New York.

    Da Bean - you know a good treat when you see one.

    Betty - thank you for visiting my blog

    Kathleen - you too!

    Jen - we goats have 4 stomachs so by the time it comes out again after being erm, regurgitated into cud it is well, well digested.

    Marlene - not really. I just want apples, apples, apples. But I always want apples.

    Sparkle - I know you cats eat meat but we goats are vegetarians.

    Pooba - I am very happy to be pregnant. I guess you don't drink gin then....

    Nanny Goats - we chew and chew, regurgitate and chew some more so it is very safe for us. Thanks! I am very happy to being having a kid or two.

    BeadedTail - the publicist is always super nice to me and gives me extra whether I am pregnant or not. Don't tell Abby...

  16. Pricilla, I missed the announcement, congratulations! I suspected after your interlude but wasn't sure. You deserve room service. I wish someone had brought me treats in bed when I was expecting. Take care of yourself and enjoy the pine.

  17. I'm going to have to try pine treats for our goats! Thanks to your tip, by the way, they now have a nice heated water pail, and we have happy goats again.


Maaaaaa away....
