Goats (not bugs)

That bug picture was creeping me out so I'm posting a few shots from our goat farm adventure today. Goats trump bugs anyday.

We had goat milk ice cream: super yummy! It doesn't taste goat-y at all!

I adore goats and their unfussy, aloof ways. I always thought it would be fun to have one roaming around, nibbling the lawn, keeping us all in check. But I learned today that they are browsers, not grazers as I thought (they prefer to snack on the tips of woody shrubs and leaves). Bummer. Seems sheep are the lawn mowers and I'm not a big fan of the sheep sooooo, livestockless we will remain for the time being (although I've been eyeing some mighty fine chicken coops around blogland lately. Hmmmmm....)

Happy weekend everyone!
