Mares Eat Oats and Does Eat Oats and Little Goats Eat…Everything!

As the sun was setting yesterday, we noticed something moving in the trees. Something large…

Upon further investigation, it was one of the goats, eating some savory leaves high above. The goats have eaten almost all of the poison ivy, Autumn olive and Multiflora rose. It looks beautiful and completely manicured (up to 6″ high) down our driveway!

Generally, they do not like to be disturbed, so upon being spotted…

this guy beat a hasty retreat back into the underbrush, or, what’s left of it.

We decided to sneak out once more at dusk and he was at it again!

But Blue made sure that we were seen immediately!

Note all goats are created equally… This guy, named Mr. Miserable, is the mascot of our tenant farmer, Rob.

Handsome to look at, but he doesn’t eat a thing of value, he will ram you immediately if you come into his space, and he smells of the most concentrated goat smell you can imagine. Oh, and he has a ridiculous bleat. Oddly feminine for such a masculine guy. We’ll get video at some point!

The Goats are Getting Big!

DSC_0069

We got some goats late this winter. As soon as the weather broke, they were moved closer to the house, and closer to us taking Blue outside to work with them.

Blue soon found out goats aren’t exactly like sheep. They are not really that afraid of herding dogs.

DSC_0008

Rather, they are pretty curious!

Blue did not appreciate them walking TOWARD her. Not at all.

So she had to lay down the law. This is more like it!

But goats just can’t help themselves and they came right back to check Blue out.

DSC_0015

We left them, watching us the whole way…
