Goat sitting

Well, its official I am a goat sitter.

Jeanelle and David were supposed to sign the papers last Friday on the house and the seller held it up for two more weeks so it looks like it will be next Friday instead.

In the meantime, there were already 3 goats ready for pick up these things can not be canceled because you already paid a big deposit.

These little goats are in high demand and the registered ones are even harder to find. Jeanelle only wants registered goats because of shows and breeding. Our grandkids will get into shows as they get older. I think right now you have to be eight years old. They ought to be quite used to goat handling by then.

Needless to say, Clover sleeps at night in the small kennel on the back porch since she is all alone I do not want her to be scared of anything weird like Coyote noises and I am terrified of them getting to her. I have seen and heard them often around here when the baby sheep are being born in the springtime.

At daylight, I take her out and put her into the large cyclone kennel and feed and water her. That is where she stays until it is almost dark. She has a climbing thing in there and she stands, sits and climbs on it all day long. They are like little kids and love to play all day long.

She should have some friends here on Saturday the other two will be picked up the other side of Fort Worth.

I am not quite sure how easy it will be juggling three of them in and out of kennels but I love helping them out even if it is temporary. I might have to get my own goat to keep at their house just so I have one lol.
