Da Goat

Meet the goat.  The baby miniature goat.  My dad rescued her just hours after she was born.

According to my dad, my dad "is her mother." Not like her mother.  Not the goat thinks of my dad as a mother.  No.  My dad is mother.

Well, "mother" brought it over for a little playtime with Burl.

Burl is in love.  The goat is quiet.  It doesn't pounce on him.  It just gets close-close enough to touch, but not close enough to scare.  

It really is cute.  This goat is becoming a star.  With a name like "Fancy Pants," what else could she be?


  1. i NEED to pet that goat!!!!! she is sooooooooo cute!

  2. That is just too cute. They look so gentle with each other. Aw!

    Our cat is amazing with babies and toddlers - she just sits there and lets them stroke and cuddle her. x

  3. Oh my word, I want to come meet the baby goat!! I think you should arrange a "Spring Is Here!" party with the baby goat as the special guest :)

  4. I want one. I need one. I have to have one. (I'll let you decide if I'm talking about Burl or the goat, but I will give you the hint that I am currently fighting a losing battle with my lawn. Plus, I think that Fancy Pants and I are two peas in a pod.)

    Love these pictures, Meg!

  5. WE are so excited about Fancy Pants and her appearance at GPS. You are so lucky!

  6. Oh my gosh she is so cute! I want her!

  7. oh my LANTA that is precious.
