Timmy Explores the Goat Pen

The rain continued today but it wasn't as bad; more like a light drizzle.
The publicist let us out of our pens in the barn and erm, convinced us it might be a good idea to go down to the outside goat pens.

We took some convincing but we finally went outside.

The publicist felt badly for poor Abby being stuck in the barn with the kids so later in the afternoon when the rain stopped completely for a while (ten minutes to be exact) she brought the twins down to meet the herd.

This did not go well.
There is no photographic evidence as the publicist was too busy trying to keep Matthew and Mallory from killing the twins.
Sarah and Norah just ran away.

Then she put all of us big goats out for a graze while yelling some words I cannot use on a family blog at Matthew and Mallory.

The twins are fine.
In fact little Timmy is quite the intrepid explorer.
And I think he is going to be a hopper like his Uncle Kevin.

Even though he is only 3 days old here just watch his form!

He checks his "hurdle."



He runs 



He hops!




Uh-oh!
SPLAT!



His little goat legs still have some strengthening to do.
Silly Timmy!
But he will learn.

  6. Abby's babies are the cutest. I'm really glad Timmy got his father's looks. Luke is my favourite online Nigerian buck :D

  7. they are just small pyrex bowls. the ones i used for the blackberry pies were tapered at the bottom. i made cherry pies today and made more so i resorted to using some of the regular shaped pyrex bowls and they seem to have worked fine. i will put them on the blog in the next day or two.

  10. I am seriously going to have to cover up my human's eyes when I come visit your blog, Pricilla, because she is getting a very bad dose of Baby Goat Fever! I bounce around KIND of like a baby goat. That should be enough for her. Hmph.

  12. Oh, we feel sorry for Timmy for going splat but we are impressed with his efforts! Hope the next meeting with Matthew and Mallory is more G rated.

  13. How cute! Timmy is destined for big things. He's already got the heart of a lion. Soon those legs will catch up.

  14. oh, yes. When baby Tardy first got to meet our big goats they tried to trample him.
    I used non-g-rated words as well. Lots of them.
    It took them a little while.
