What IS it With Kids?

I do not begin to understand them.
I cannot remember back that far.
I am too old.
I cannot imagine I did this.
I am too sensible.

What you ask?


Standing in my food!
The publicist no sooner put the bucket of hay down and up he hopped.
It's not like the view is better from up there.
It's barely a foot off the ground!


Silly kid!
It's certainly not easier to eat his meal from in there.


Even Louise the goat was shaking her head.
That or she didn't want to eat hay with goatprints all over it.


Thelma went over to maaaa at her kid.
But it looks like she got a little distracted!
THELMA! DO YOUR JOB!


That's better.
I think she gave him a little nip.


'Cause he hopped down and started acting like a normal goat.
This is one crazy Farm!

  3. Alex, don't let them all pick on you. You are just having a good time and living life to the fullest. You do have a good time. And it sure is fun seeing pictures of you being a silly and bad goat kid.Hope all of you have a fun day. Take care too.

  4. Pricillia, this grand kid of yours is a hoof-full! Maybe Alex is thinking he will capture the attention of Bernadette if he makes himself look taller & I guess standing on a bucket of hay is one way to look taller. Alex may feel 10 feet tall, but the really just looks silly standing on his food. Now might be a great time for Thelma to start teaching Alex some basic bucket-manners. I think Thelma is going to be doing a lot of nipping at Alex before he is a grown up goat. He's one of those kids who's going to give his Maw more than a few grey hairs in her coat. Luckily for Thelma, grey looks good with black & white.

  7. HAH! Did someone show him a video of humans stomping grapes? Or maybe he just likes to play in/with his food. Or maybe he was giving his dinner a hooves down.
