Corn Season - We Love Husks

The male person harvested the corn from his garden. Sadly for us goats he did not grow as much corn as he did last year. I do not know why he is punishing us this way. What did we do wrong that we deserve less corn? We are good goats! We should get, if anything, MORE corn husks than last year!


Anyway, he harvested 110 ears of corn for the publicist to do whatever it is she does with the corn that does not involve feeding it to us. LAST year there were 347 ears of corn so you can see why we goats are so upset. That is a lot less husks for us to eat not to mention a lot fewer stalks when he cuts them down. 

Harumph again!
What was that man thinking?!

Oh well SOME corn husks are better than NO corn husks, right?

Sarah showed an amazing lack of daintiness in eating hers.
Sometimes I cannot believe she is my kid.

I chose to be a dignified goat and I even shared mine with Nora.
THAT is how a goat should behave.

I have to admit that even though there were not as many as last year they were mighty tasty.

Uhm, OK! Maybe I was a bit of a piggie goat.
But I'll bet YOU could not resist the lure of the husk.

Especially when they are all around you.

I can share. Would YOU like a husk?
Go on, I know you want one....


  1. I'm of the same mindset. A little is better than none at all!

  2. quality over quantity, i guess... :)

  3. my girls use corn husks to make dolls. I would much rather send them to you. It looks like you really enjoyed them.

  4. Thank you for the offer of a corn husk, but you go ahead. :O). I am sure they are quite good.

  5. Do you ever get to taste the corn too? Or just the husk? I'm sorry for your loss this year. Of husks, that is.

  6. We Cats would prolly rather play in them than eat them...except CC. He's a little tetched in the head. Maybe he's part goat?

  7. Peepers would love a husk. The assistant will have to get her some. They do look good and Pricilla you sure are enjoying them and so is your daughter and the other goats. Good stuff. Take care

  8. the male person sure is good to all of you. tell him to plant more next year!

  9. No thank you, Pricilla, I'm not a big corn husk fan... but I WILL take that chicken that's in your first photo, if you don't mind!

  10. How yummy! They look so good, and you are a very kind goat to share.

  11. That's nice of you to share Pricilla but we'll let you have the husks. Do the chickens eat them too?

  12. What is going on there??! Criminy, only one third of the corn from last year?? Is the publicist relaxing???

  13. I for one think you make piggy look dignified.

  14. We did not grown any corn this year, but we have been buying it from the grocery store, and the husks always go to Lucky Nickel, and sometimes she shares with the angora boys. ;-)


Maaaaaa away....
