Without batting an eye


I love it when my mom comes out to the farm.

When I tell her I need some help "doing a couple things", she doesn't hesitate to jump right in:

Even if it means having 60 pound goats sit on her lap while I squirt de-wormer down their throats and trim their hooves:

The goats love it, too, when she comes over. Her lap is an incredibly cozy place to nap:

This is a relaxed goat:

Kai llama loves my mom's visits because she *always* remembers to bring a HUGE bag of carrot coins:

Kai's joy tends to be short-lived, though, once the goat boys show up:

Pushy goats - they think everything's ALL about them:

  4. What great photos! Love the ones of the goats and your mom. So true how pushy they are. Kai almost seems to be saying, "well Mom, aren't you going to do something about this?!"

  11. That is one indignant llama look in the last shot. Looks like she's saying "Would you get over here and do something about these two, please!"

    Isn't it great when our animal companions are happy & trusting enough to fall asleep in our presence. I love it.

  12. Amazing how relaxed those goat boys are, your mom has special qualities in that they trust her so. Moms can be not only your friend, but helpful folks too. I miss my mom.

  14. What ever are you talking about? It IS all about the goats. Isn't it?

  15. Either Pete and Reggie have grown (the camera does add 5-10 lbs) or your mother is not a large woman.

    She must have the magic touch to get them to sleep like that.

  17. If I lived closer, I'd come and help your mom. What's better than one mom? TWO!! Do you keep your goats and donkeys in an electric fence?

  18. Hi Genny! The more moms the merrier, I always say... :-)
    The goat house where Pete and Reggie live is not enclosed within electric fencing - just standard 4' no-climb fencing. My three "pastures", however, are fenced with 7-strand New Zealand electric fencing. Any time anybody's in the pasture, that is what keeps them in - and the "bad guys" out. :-)
