Goat Babies and More

It was bad enough last weekend when Barbara came home and had Riley smell all over her. She was invited for wine and cheese and I was very miffed since I was not. Evidently Riley (who is my boyfriend) fawned all over her and showed off his tricks.

But last night it was even worse. She came home smelling of goat babies.

One our Drill Team friends has some goats and Maggie had twins named Sugar and Spice. You can see that Barbara is cuddling Spice which is why her shirt smelled so good.

I love goats! I am always fascinated by the goats at the farm at Fearrington and I behave very nicely around them. I never try to chase them or bark at them. I just like to look at them and take in their wonderful aroma. So why wasn't I invited??

Maggie is a very good mom to the twins and keeps the other goats away from them.

Here is Thelma on top of her dog house. I had no idea that goats could sleep in dog houses!

I could not stop sniffing Barbara's clothes and shoes - they smelled wonderful. She says the next time she goes to visit them, I am invited too. I cannot wait. Of course we will not bring Ambrose for fear that he would traumatize the little goat babies.

Goat babies are cute and they would be fun to chase but I have lots of fun chasing my girlfriend Scout. Barbara filmed us chasing each other during the winter and forgot to post it on the blog! See how she neglects me.

Anyway, here it is now for your viewing pleasure. There are lots of shots of the grass because Scout and I run so fast that she couldn't keep up with us. The best part is the very end.

We always have great fun racing around together and really tires us out.

You may have noticed that there is not a single picture of me, Niamh, in this post. This is a disgrace. Barbara is always forgetting to take her camera with her to my activities. I have freestyle practice tomorrow and I hope that she will finally remember to take the camera so you can see some of my moves.

I'd love to see some of them in pawson!
I got tired just looking the running around in the video and then.... the squeak at the end!
Have a great weekend!

That's right Niamh, make sure you don't get neglected!
Oh, Ambrose had a lot of fun though and I think I would be very interested in goat baby smell too!!

We've never sniffed a goat before but we'd sure like to!
Barbara was having trouble keeping up with you on your video, Ambrose. You sure do move fast!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Those baby goats are just the cutest ever. I would love to smell them. Ella
As for the video of the running, I think that "squeak" at the end must have been Barbara being body-slammed!
