So [livejournal.com profile] adelheid_p and her husband rescued me from frustration on Sunday and took me out to Brandywine Farm for Goat Day..which means a potluck lunch/dinner and playing with baby goats. Which is exactly what I needed.

Pics after the cut..

Goats!!

"O hai!"

Apparently the babies are very mouthy at this stage.

And Mama wanted her beer.

"If you won't share, I'm leaving."

[livejournal.com profile] adelheid_p going for a cute shot.

"I am here for my close-up!"

If you wait long enough, the goats will realize they haven't said hi yet.

And then they will try to eat you.

..which is kinda adorable.

:)

The farm owners raise and train English sheepdogs for rescue work. This is Cole, who was worn out from playing and let me cuddle him. He then took a nap, using my boot for a pillow. Aww....!

Yay goats!!
After all these years of threatening to buy one -because they're so inexpensive out here - it was sure tempting to bring one home, because apparently these are all boys, and thus are to be sold as pets. I deserve a cookie for not smuggling one into the car..

Nope, it's an English sheepdog. You can tell because he likes me. Also, the owner breeds them.

(I swear they call them sheepdogs, but this is them.)

As I say, that's what I was told, and I was a little confused, too. But the obvious thing is if the dog likes me, its' not a border collie. Weird but true. :)
