Just Being Nosey

I can't tell you how often,
when I am kneeling down,
trying to construct
just the perfect photo....

this happens....

or this....

or this....

or this...

It seems that there is quite a curiosity
about my camera!
I cannot tell you how many photos of noses I have taken...
most of them blurry.

I was originally trying to get a good photo of Spider,
our dwarf Nigerian male (neutered).

He is quite a handsome goat, oh so friendly
and, oh so curious.
He is also slightly obese.

I just cannot seem to get a picture that adequately
shows how wide he is through the middle.

Needless to say, his favorite past time is eating...
(neutering has a way of doing that to a fellow!)


Do you have a Tub-Trug?

(Sam is looking forlorn...probably worried that the tub trug
will be used as a bath tub for him!)

Tub trugs are light weight, pliable rubber tubs that are an
essential gardening tool.
They come in all colors (even pink!) and several sizes.
We buy the black ones, as they are made from recycled materials.

I use them for every gardening and landscaping project,
even for hauling water.
This one is fairly large - 
as you can see next to our 150 lb. Newfie, Maddie.
(Oh, and please disregard the long string of slobber
dropping from the side of her mouth!)
(Such is life with Newfies!)

Check them out here if you are interested. goat babies yet.  Hurry up Sissy!!


  1. So cute. I confess there a couple of goats I only have picture of through a fence because I can't get a picture otherwise because they are right there on top of me.

  2. I got a nose print on my lens from doing just that...Love my tub trugs..I have 3 now..I gave them to A&J for Christmas 2 years ago...

  3. Never used a tub trug, will have to try one out. Like the Black, doesn't show the mud, etc. LOL

  4. I have to enjoy your goat babies this year. I don't think we are going to have any. I place the problem with human error. Ours. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  5. They are lovely noses. Can't wait for the new kid news.

  6. They are lovely noses. Can't wait for the new kid news.
