Cave In

O.K. so I caved. Cora Belle and Filbert are back in the nursery pen. My two wethers Rowdy and Riot are not very nice to them and I was surprised to see Filbert acting a bit cowardly when I went down tonight. Filbert is usually a little bad ass. Excuse my language but it is my blog. Filbert is always ready to butt (oh my gosh, two bad words in one post) anyone that gets in his way. The rest of the goats are scared of the pigs. Not Fil, he aims right for the tender snout and delivers a blow that sends the girls squealing. He doesn't even have to be near them and they start squealing at the sight of him. I have seen him stand up to the bully wethers at other times but when I went down tonight the babes were afraid to come in out of the rain. Yes, it is raining in Washington, a very rare occurrence. So out went Ruckus and Moly and in went Fil and Cora Belle. I'm a mush when it comes to those two. I'm their mother. Sort of. I bottled fed them....for about a week. They love me and I them so I couldn't stand to see them being "just goats".

Here's your Rorschach test....what do you see on Filbert's side. A chicken or a goat? I saw a Saanen goat but others have said chicken.

The results will remain confidential.

It is my belief that the problem lies in the names you gave the two wethers...Rowdy and Riot. I mean, doesn't that give them a reputation to maintain? As for the spot on Filbert's side, well, I believe it is Alaska. :)

Awwww I never thought of that. I will try to put a little more thought in the naming of the goats next time. I should have made it clear to Riot that he was named such because he is a riot of color but that doesn't explain Rowdy.
Now as far as Alaska's concerned...I think it means you are the outdoorsey type that loves adventure. And you like to stand on top of things and look down.

I think Filbert's peeing.

And anyone can plainly see that there's an albino bat hanging upside down on Filbert's neck and side. Duh!



heheheeh :)

So if you saw a chicken it means you appreciate the simple things in life. A little food a little something to drink and time to play around in the dirt. You are also a good provider for your family...especially at breakfast time.
Now if you saw an albino bat you tend to blindly jump into things before you know what you are getting into. When there are a lot of mosquitos, you are handy to have around. And you are a lady of the evening....ha ha ha I cracked myself up.

Very similar to the first several nights we tried John in his own crib when he was itty bitty. I couldn't handle it and always moved him back into the pack and play in our room.

I see a chicken!
