Update from JT Farm
If you’ve been following along throughout the Spring, you probably have noticed I have a borderline obsession with the sheep on my street. I can’t help it! They are so darn cute and cuddly, and though I have tried to get out of my car on more than one occasion to get a closer look, they always run away. There is a new development on JT Farms, though. The sheep are now gone and there a lots of goats. Regular sized goats, baby goats, and one big fat one that seems to always escape the enclosure and gets to the other side where the grass is really greener. He doesn’t seem to want to run away…he only appears to want to have the choice pick of grass instead of eating off the hay pile like the rest of them.
Anyways, I noticed the other day one of the big goats giving one of the little goats a lesson. It looked like the animal version of “Billy Goats 101 for Dummies”. Basically what happened is that the little nugget goat went up on his back legs and the big goat would put her head down and the little goat would slam down to head butt her. The pair repeated this sequence about 3 times before they realized they were being watched-once they realized they had an audience they got stage fright. I sincerely think a lesson was being taught. Check out how cute these little babes are!
Now, as for where all the cutesy little lambs went…I’m not sure. I’m going to pretend that they were not included as inventory in the “Lamb, Beef, and Eggs for Sale”. Who knows, maybe they are just getting their wool sheered off…it is pretty hot out there to be wearing a wool sweater for crying out loud! I will await their return! I do miss the sheep, but I can also appreciate that the goats aren’t as skittish…in fact, by the way they posed so regally for my photo shoot, I think they downright liked me!
