All Goats….

All goats all the time.
Ever since the little barn was built and the oldest child was told she could have a goat in 2013 it’s been all about goats. March brought with it an increased discussion of goats because they’d be all kidding soon if not already done….
When are we getting goats?
What kind of goats are we getting?
What color will they be?
Will they be boys or girls?
Will they be fiber goats?
Will the pull carts?
And about a million more questions… Mostly unanswered so the questions are repeated and new ones added along with fun hypotheticals.


My Mom bought a book on goats (that one up there) and well, that was an opportunity for me to throw a little extra homeschool assignment around. Tell me dear child, how are we going to take care of goats? So she’s worked very hard and read the book and discussed goats non stop.


She’s got a massive list of names picked out and crocheted 2 little goat coats for her 2 hopeful kids. If we don’t get goats soon I’ll probably be slightly nuts from having talked about goats constantly.

    I’m sending my son to live with you. He has been asking for a goat for months now. He is sure he wants a male goat, because he doesn’t want to have to milk it, but other than that, he’s pretty flexible.

    You want dairy goats? I have a friend in Ashburnham, MA, who raises and sells dwarf Nigerians (I think that’s what they are).

    And just what is wrong with sheep, pray tell?

    My partner grew up with goats. He loves La Manchas.

    Now you have an inkling on what the verbal perseverations of a child with autism are like. We refer to it as “the stim du jour”. Golf balls, chains, license plates, changing snow in our yard into water and dumping it into the pond at camp…it goes on and on and on…. Enjoy your goats. You will all learn from them and enjoy their antics! And you will look downright normal in my eyes.
