12:15 pm - Goats.... Gotta Love 'Em!
Yesterday we visited our friend Katie, and Ollie got to pet baby goats. It was so fun to hold those adorable animals again. I used to raise goats, remember. Back in 1975. I'm still nostalgic about my goats back then. Here we were yesterday, baby meeting baby. So cute!
To prove I had, and loved, goats once, look at this:
These babies were from my all-time favorite goat, Bina. She looked just like her babies. She had a mild temperment, an excellent udder and yield (a gallon a day), and she produced the best-tasting milk I've ever had. Unfortunately, I had to give her away when we moved to Indiana. I real loss for me.
and another (me and Nathen and babies from our other goat, Jilly):
I have to admit, I was a bit obsessed with goats back then. They were our source of excellent food, and they were so fun and beautiful. I just loved them.
