If I had a dollar for every time someone has wondered about why we have goats...well, needless to say - the goat bridges arriving Friday would be paid for!
So, today, I am home -- in need of a day to feel better -- and I just walked out to the barn for a smile.
This is my little Ralphie.
He was one of the twins that arrived last fall. His horns are new, grown over his first winter. He sometimes gets picked on by the older goats -- but what Ralphie has taught me is to get up, brush yourself off -- and try again. He is joyful and resilient & runs to me when I call for him. Grape leaves and strawberries make his day. Many times, he makes my day.
The answer to the question -- because, just because.
