Goats are my Favorite!

Lynley Moment!!! Picking raspberries with my new friend Kevin the goat is my favorite! This poor baby was lost on a very busy road. Danny's sister took him in and is caring for him until she can return him to his rightful owner. I named him Kevin because he kind of reminded me of the lost bird in the movie UP. His real name is probably something like, um... Gertrude.

Kevin let me take his picture and we talked while I picked berries. He's a pretty good listener, although he had quite a lot to say himself. I'm certain he was trying to tell me that he needed help finding his way home and he missed his family. He grew a bit impatient with my inability to understand goat-ese, but I tried to reassure him by saying things like, "It's okay baby" (animals love that sort of thing). I hope he returns to his own little pasture soon, but in the meantime, I'm pretty happy to have him around! Did you know I love goats?! I do.

Oh what a joyous Lynley moment this is!! Kudos to whichever of your sisters-in-law rescued Kevin from that busy road. I bet he was telling you "Thanks for keeping me company, Lynley. I'm sure glad that you're here!"

I think I want a goat just so I can wake up every morning and start the day out with a laugh...they're so goofy!

I'm a pygmy goat fan myself and you can't help but talk to them. I love how animals communitcate when they know people are listening to them. I hope that Kevin either finds his home or can be happy where he is with people that cared enough to take him in.
