Today I have goats on the brain. I began with reading This Goats life, which is joy making. You can find it here: goatcentral.blogspot.com.
I've always liked goats for their extreme cuteness (depending on the breed), but it was affection in theory. Then this year when I met some goats...well, I was won over completely. There was much leaping and running and leaning against my legs and tail wiggling when scratched. There was bleeeaaating and baaaaaing and wonderful vertical pupils looking sweetly and mischievously into my round ones. I wish I could see goats every day, to run with them and clicker train them and challenge them to be smart and accomplished. Goats. Love.
