A half hour's break in yesterday's drizzle was all it took
for the goats to venture out for their supper.
You see, our fainting goats are fair weather animals.
They seek shelter in their houses as soon as the weather looks ominous.
They lounge indoors all day munching on hay.
We used to provide room service, but have stopped doing that,
as they invariably drag their bowls to the very back of their houses....
requiring us to crawl on our hands and knees the next day to retrieve them.
As for the Dwarf Nigerian goats...
a little rain won't keep them from missing a meal,
but a shower - now that's a different matter.
The fact that they rarely miss a meal,
might have contributed to their portly stature...
As for the rest of the animals...
the drizzle kept them in and around the barn.
Why is it that when you are trying to clean up manure...
suddenly everyone is interested in it?
Not to mention their snacking on it....
as if to imply that I'm not feeding them enough!
All of our animals are chubby.
What's up with that??
