Let it snow...Let it snow..
I think KansasRose and Dawn got all our snow.I be Pea got some too!.
So WHERES MINE?? I know Diane likes snow.I like snow. So I guess I'll just make me a cup of tea and watch the sleet and rain mix.
Well on to other things. After looking at KansasRose's goat,it brought back a lot of memories..My
ex brought in a milk goat one time. When he got her the other people had kept the twins she had.
Well, she had to be milked to express the milk or her udder would burst or get infected....hmmm
I don't have to tell you I had never milked a goat(or anything else).But what the whey,I'll try anything once. No one told me she had never been milked.
Anyhow on that cold morning we got intimate real fast.I found out Nanny didn't like cold hands and I didn't like goatmilk in my hair.That little lady could kick straight up and come down with both back feet in a small bucket,without missing a bite of food.For about a week I'd end up with her feet in the bucket and the milk on me.But we finally came to a understanding.Extra food for her=milk for me.
We also found out she didn't like men,and she could headbutt a dog at least 25 foot in 2 seconds.
Having goats was educational too.Did you know a billy will twist his body around just to get a chance to pee all over you.They will mark you like a cat will.Yuck!!!Goats also love clean wash hanging on the line,they don't eat it they chew on it.Or pull it down to play with.yum.
I also learned they can put all four feet on top of the highest object they can climb,only has to be the size of the top of a can....then...they laugh at you.Not smile...THEY LAUGH!!!
Over the years we've had a lot of pets all shapes and sizes.We have had everything from garter snakes to horses,we even had a pig that was raised on a bottle..they all were a part of our family and we miss the ones that are gone.But God gave us big hearts and we can love the whole world if we try.
Enough of that now...I got to go find some old pictures to put on here...I'm still learning this stuff
so I'm playing with them and moving them.You know...learning!!!
Have a good weekend everyone,and be safe!!!!
