I'm Tired

Happy President's Day to all of my friends in the US

I will maaaaa you.
This winter has been a hard one.
Even though it has warmed up enough that I don't need to wear my goat-ure

I am really not a happy goat.
I think I am feeling my years.

The walk up to the barn seems like miles.
At least the publicist has been feeding me apples.
Apples make me happy.

I still smile for apples!
But first I have to catch my breath.

I scared the publicist yesterday.
I climbed up on the stanchion so I could eat my grain and she looked away for minute and the next thing she saw was me doing a double flip! I fell off the stanchion! I did not maaaa to her how it happened. I was too embarrassed. But she was very, very worried.

I was a little scared too.
I don't think I like getting old.

I am OK but I am going to be more careful.
It was good there was a nice bit of hay on the barn floor.
I bounced.


  1. Oh sweet Pricilla, we understand. I am going to be (gulp) 10 this year and the Human doesn't even want to say how old she will be (except it's more than six times that!) When we get older, we have to be more careful about ourselves 'cause falling is no fun at all. I hope your weather starts to warm up soon cause I think Spring will make you feel a little younger XOXOXOXO

  2. Pricilla, you scared me too! I hope you did not hurt yourself when you fell - I am sending healing purrs your way.

  3. Oh Pricilla, that makes us sad to hear that happened to you. The poor publicist must be really worried. You be careful Pricilla. That makes all of us worry too. Like Sparkle, we send lots of purrs to you. Take care.

  4. What a scary fall! We hope you're okay and that the hay absorbed the impact of your fall. We think the warmer weather will agree with you. :)

    We're sending lots of purrs and woofs your way, Priscilla!

  5. Oh no! I hope you are okay Pricilla! None of us 'bounce' as well as we did when we were younger. You be careful and try to stay warm!

  6. oh, pricilla, i know your publicist loves you. do be safe so you can stay with her for a long time, yet!

  7. Poor Pricilla. Getting old isn't for sissies, that's for sure! I know you're not a sissy so you're going to do just fine. Slow and easy - you've earned your retirement so enjoy it! I hope you get an extra apple or two now and then. Take care!

  8. Oh Pricilla- getting older is not so much fun, but enjoy your apples, and maybe you should do less climbing.

  9. oh no must be more careful. getting old really bites! maybe spring will make you feel better!

  10. holy moly - we didn't witness that but it certainly sounds scary. getting old isn't for wimps - but you need to be a little careful.

  11. Pricilla, you have us scairt too! We're glad you're okay and hope nothing like that happens again!

  12. Oh, my dear goat friend, I hope you are okay. Is there joint supplements for goats? I know it helps my dear old Grace a bit...maybe you can get some.

    I hope you are not hurting after your fall. :(

  13. Glad you still bounce. I think you and our steer need to find some farm with a heated barn and very soft floors to retire to.

  14. Oh Pricilla, I'm glad you're OK but I feel your pain (& embarrassment.) And here, we've got a human AND two kitties who are doing all they can to deny and ignore the dreaded "aging." You're right that winter doesn't help at all...and apples do (at least for the human--cats prefer TUNA!)

  16. What the heck is a stanchion? I’m a city cat. I’m glad you’re ok. I didn’t know you were such an “old goat”—heh heh—until the Publicist told everybuddy at the pawty your age.


Maaaaaa away....
