So on Saturday, E's birthday, we picked up Leyla. I'm sure you have seen a post or two on her, haven't you. I mean I'm not excited about the addition of a pregnant goat or anything. I don't even like goats. I think they smell. They make disgusting cheese, and who in their right mind would drink their vile milk?
I am really grossed out when I see her belly wriggle from baby goats inside kicking. I hate the look on my kids faces when they feel the babies. I really dislike that when we take her on hikes on the deer trails throughout the property, that she follows us better than the dogs. I thinks she is so ugly with those icy blue eyes against her black hair. I totally hate that she has a little white patch on her side that looks like spilled milk.
 I hate that she nearly bowls my kids over when she wants her head scratched. I am so sad that my  kids love her so much. I hate having to drive up to the barn to see her and care for her. I think it's so annoying that she makes weird goat sounds. I hate that we now have to save veggie, fruit and grain scraps from the kitchen. That I have to drag the kids up to the barn against their will, kicking and screaming to give her a snack that I have to force her to eat.
I seriously do not like this goat. I LURVE her!-K

Okay. I.m happy for you, but I am still jealous!

Came across a great site:
An urban homestead on 1/5 acre! Their message board also has some categories that may be of interest to you.

And of course: GOATS:

Oh she's so pretty! I can't wait to see newborn goat babies (I'm only guessing that you'll take at least a few pictures :) . How exciting!
