Sitting Goat and Other Weird Animals
This is Grinch, our goat who thinks she's a dog. I've never seen a goat sit like this before. While all the others are laying down chewing their cud (sounds yummy doesn't it?) Grinch will be sitting on the hill overlooking her territory, doing her best impersonation of a dog. I'm waiting for her to bark, or with just a lift of the head, she could howl at the moon.
And if that's not strange enough, here's one of the lambs who likes to lay in the water trough. The lambs don't have names because they all look alike and I didn't get close enough to see the ear tag number, but I believe it's the same one each time I see the trough occupied.
When she knows she's been seen, she ducks down like she's playing peek-a-boo. (I know you wouldn't have believed it if you hadn't seen it.) Somewhere in the deep recesses of her minuscule sheep brain she may be thinking that if she can't see me I can't see her.
OK, so I've got weird animals here. But it just adds to the fun of farming.
