Here's for Waffles and for the ALS #IceBucketChallenge My Way

I am just a goat.
An old goat at that.
My friend Waffles from Glogirly challenged me to the Ice Bucket Challenge in support of ALS.

This has been going around the internet for a while now.
ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig's disease because the famous baseball player had it.
It is a very insidious disease that attacks human's nerve cells and leads to their death.

As far as know it is not something we goats get.
But that does not mean that we cannot help support the cause.
I urge you humans who don't know about it to learn more at the ALS Association website.
I have made a donation from my apple money because even though it does not impact goats I think it is an important cause.

Now, as to this ICE BUCKET challenge.
Goats DO NOT like water.
The publicist has told you stories of how we MAAAAA loudly to go into the barn any time it rains.
So given this there was no way I was going to have water dumped over my head.
Not to mention the fact that I think it might just give me a goat heart attack!

So I did the challenge in my own special way.....
I hope Waffles approves.

If you cannot see the movie you can watch it on YouTube HERE

Now I hope that you all take the time to goatumacate yourselves about ALS and if you have a few extra green papers make a donation.

There is also Sparkle's Memorial Service tomorrow on her blog. There will be a commentathon for Tabby's Place in her honor. The publicist made a donation in Sparkle's honor from all of us here on the Farm. Please be sure to stop by and leave a comment and make a donation if you can.

I know I am asking for a lot of your monies today but these are both good causes.


  1. Wow--that was the BEST challenge I've ever seen.

    Um, did your Human say something about a baby of some kind, or did we hallucinate that?

  2. That was a creative approach! Thank you for sharing about Sparkle's memorial on Friday - it really means a lot!

  3. You're so creative, Pricilla ! Very smart of you to turn the Ice Bucket Challenge into the Apples Bucket Challenge to make it goat-friendly ! Purrs

  4. i like the apple bucket challenge much more!

  5. Hey, I think that challenge was a success! Cute twist on it!

  6. What could be better Pricilla then to have apples dumped on your head. Bet you did wonder was up with the publicist. At least you got lots of nice apples. Happy Thursday to all of you.

  7. now, imagine if those were ice cubes, pricilla! :)

  8. YAY PRICILLA!!!! That was an AWESOME Ice... uh, Apple Bucket Challenge!!!
    We loved it. Now if I can just get Glogirly to let me do a Chicken Bucket Challenge...
    : ) Love, Waffles

  9. WTG Pricilla .... Cubey said she would consider a kabocha squash bucket challenge. Skittles said he isn't getting anything dumped on his head but would be happy to help eat the Kabocha squash :O)...

  10. We like your take on the challenge, Pricilla. We think if we did it, we'd like a bucket of catnip poured over our heads.

  11. We bet you'd love to do that challenge again and again and again!

  12. That is my favorite one! And I like how whole-heartedly Pricilla participated in the challenge. :)


Maaaaaa away....
