As you know Murry(Von-Furry-Pants) is living inside. You also know,those of you who "Rent" your land to goats(we pay you by cutting your grass),that baby goat can be agitating,even to other goats. Well Mr.Murry has decided to play climb the dish washer,and goat stomp the dishwasher.Yes,the dishwasher("Da Boy" note. You aren't 100% country until you have to use the phrase"The goat is in the dishwasher again,and it's not my turn to pull him out",or a similar phrase) ............ "Da Boy" thinks his time inside is going to be shorter than mine and Sissy's. "Da Boy" has also decided to let him be a buck,not a weather,he is VERY happy about this.You have to admit he looks very buckly in this shot. So I will leave you with these pics until next time.
Here are some pics of Weed Wacker's babies. They are getting some milk,and would not let "Da Boy" get any good pics. Here with them is "sheep yard chicken", he thinks he is a sheep and sleeps with them. Angry Eye says hi!! So This all the pics that we have,but I will have more soon!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well I was eating my hay,when all of a sudden I hear Nibbles say that Weed Wacker was having her babies!! She had two,a boy and a girl,no names yet!! Her is boy standing up. And here is Charger looking at his kids!!! It has been a exciting day,I will tell all latter.
I won!!!!!!! The Maaaaa of Pricilla had a drawing for her soap. Well I WON!! I would like to thank Maaaaa of Pricilla and the Publicist for have the drawing. "Da Boy" picked out "Old Goat"(Patchouli). Luckily for "Da Boy" I already smell like a old goat so(under threat of no grain) gave it to him,as a "gift".
We are all very sad..... This may be the saddest post ever.. Laughing Duck Farm cannot catch a break. Yesterday as "Da Boy" was feeding us,he herd a goat scream and thought it was coming from Sissy's house. But it was Guinness's house. She had just given birth to Murry Von Furry Pants. It was 15* so he put her in his bathroom(Sweet Pea is still Grandnana's),she ate her feed and was fine. But as the day went on she went in to constant labor and was starting to go into distress. Normally at this point "Da Boy" would have taken her to the vet,but it was Sunday and NO vet's were open. So when he got up this morning she was in a really bad shape and could not even nurse Murry Von Furry Pants. And at 1:30PM poor Guinness passed away from unknown complications. Every body was hit hard,but Murry Von Furry Pants is in perfect health so he will make it and live on the farm. So unless something else happens, I will not be posting for a few days.
It is still to cold outside to let Sweet Pea outside,so for now the Grandnana has graciously given up her bathroom so that Sweet Pea can be warm. She is doing very well and she is walking arrrorund and talking to Grandnana,even at night!!! ''Da Boy" and Grandnana cheack on her hourly,they think she can go out soon,but it will have to be a warm day first.
First I must say that this is a solemn post,so for those who love goat might not want to read this. Sweet Pea went in to labor yesterday at about 3:00 PM,it was her first kid. "The People" thought it was twins,but it was one really big baby,"the people" wanted to watch,but they had to go to the airport. When they got back Sweet Pea was still in labor,with no baby. Any experienced "Goat Owner"(there is no such thing,we goat aren't owned,but rent your land and cut your grass as rent) will know that 95% of all goat births are uneventful,poor Sweet Pea was in the 5%. So the vet said that the only way to save her was to do a see-section,and that the baby had already died. So Right now Sweet Pea is is living inside at night because it is 17* at night and is to weak to sleep outside. She is on some medicine for the pain and not talking much. The Vet said that she will be able to breed next year.So for now it is said,but it will pass,Guinness is due next month,and "the people" have high hopes for that.
