Mmmmm, GRAIN!

I know I probably sound like a broken record but GRAIN is an important part of our day.
It just tastes so good.
I told you all on Tuesday how Nora and I get to go down to the pen first.
When we go down we get a bit of yummy grain for being good goats.

Nora gets her grain in the hay feeder but she has some uninvited guests.

Those rotten chickens!
They keep trying to steal her grain.

It is not fair!
They have their own type of grain in their chicken house.
They should leave our grain alone.

But Nora uses her horns to her advantage!

Shooo chickens. Shooo!
Finally, some peace.

She can now enjoy her treat without any interruptions.

I will not confirm or deny the identity of the goat in that photo.
Ah hem.

Sarah and Abby come down a bit later after Sarah has been milked.
The publicist gives them their grain in the barn but she does bring a little extra in her pocket. I suspect it's because she cannot resist faces like this...

Could you?
Sarah gobbles the grain from the publicist's hand

She loves this little extra treat.
I know I would!

If I were Sarah I would get out of the way!

Claire asked about my studmuffin's baling twine hat. The publicist had taken it off because Luke had rubbed it almost completely off. She thought he would be a good boy.

She was wrong. 
So now here is what he looks like now....

Silly Luke.
Safe Brewster.


  1. oh, hee hee. I'm sorry but I did laugh when all the chickens left Nora to come to you, Pricilla! Hee hee. Luke looks really cute again with his twine crown. xoxoxoxoxox

  2. Grow Brewster! Then you'll be safe and Luke won't look silly.

  3. A-ha! "Rotten chickens!"
    NOW I have an ally.................

  4. Also, I think Luke looks Bad Boy Hot.....but then, I don't get out much.............

  5. I used to have that problem with my piglets. One would come early and eat the corn and then there were another nine all trying to be first! It's a split-second timing thing, I think.

    I forgot. Why the twine crown? Come visit when you can.

  6. hahahaha....luke has on his eater bonnet!

  7. Poor Luke, but we are glad that Brewster is safe. Maybe he will get his own pen soon Luke. We just don't want him to leave.
    Those silly chickens trying to steal your grain. You ladies need that grain. Hope all of you have a great day and see some of that sunshine.

  8. Nora is such a squat little cutie. I get the whole grain thing...


    Whole grain.

    OK. Um. Need some coffee over here. ;)

  9. The way my goats have been acting here lately those chickens would be um well not feeling very well doing that here...

    We seem to be on fight and fight and fight some more mode around here! Its wearing thin!

    Luke, well bless his heart he does look a bit um well odd in his do there... tee hee... but I totally understand why he needs it! Harrison as you know is not even nice to other males at my place...

    Geesh there seems to be a trend here ... sighhhh

  10. Those chickens are really annoying! I will come over and get rid of them for you if you like...

  11. Everybody loves grain!

    Luke, you're so naughty!

  12. Those chickens sure are pains in the patooties! Luke does not look happy with his head gear still!


Maaaaaa away....
