Fainting Fred

frisky, friendly Fred faints!

(Forgive the frightful alliteration.)

We have been trying for weeks to get Fred's fainting picture
for his registration.
With the possibility of his mating with Sissy,
it is even more important that he be registered.

We had tried everything.
Throwing the horses' play ball at him,
raising umbrellas near him,
running and shouting at him,
you name it....
we tried it!

Each time we'd try,
he would either look at us like we were crazy,
or he would stiffen up....
but with feet firmly planted,
he would just not fall over.

I had planned on writing today's post as a plea
for ideas on how to make him "faint".

None needed now, however.
Yesterday Becky suggested she run at him with a tarp
flying in the air.

That did the trick.
He stiffened up....

And fell to the ground.

Good job, Fred!
Now we can stop pestering you.
For that, you get a cracker!

And one for the audience, too!

Oh, how Hickory loves treats!


  1. It's just so comical to me that there is a creature that faints. Too funny! I can just see in my mind's eye - you running at him with a tarp in the air. That's even funnier than the goat fainting!

  2. Thanks for making me laugh today! However, you should have just called me earlier. I could have brought my boys over. They would have made Fred faint!

  3. Stoic Fred!!!! Finally gave in..poor thing..now he can be left in peace....

  4. Ya know, you need to write a book on the adventures of Bee Haven Acres. I would buy it in a heartbeat. I always look forward to your posts to brighten my day!

  5. Bev, how cute is that. I love fainting goats but had no idea you had to get them to faint to get them registered. That is just too funny. He did a good job and how bout that Hickory.

  6. No Way!! You have to make them faint to register them?? I mean, I get it, but still. I know it's a part of their nature, but it always seems cruel to scare them on purpose. I'm just one of those girls that wants to behead someone if they jump out from behind a door or something.
