Catching a baby goat.

    Is not easy. We were in Inverness a few days ago and Grant was set on catching a baby goat.  At first I sent him out into the goat field to do it all by himself.  He was successful and caught this really cute pure white baby goat.  I thought that would be enough, but I was wrong!  He spotted the most beautiful [...]

Horsepower 4 Kids

I decided to take the boys down to Horsepower 4 Kids yesterday afternoon.  It may not have been the best idea because it was right during Garrett's nap time (next time we will plan to go in the morning).  I had no idea they would have so many different types of animals.  This petting zoo is a local (Tampa) and runs as a non-profit organization.  I was [...]

Trail of Ponies

This is a great video of Campbell and Annastyn riding their ponies singing a little song they made up.  It is called Trail of Ponies.  Watching them brought back memories of my own childhood.  I remember being a little girl and having this same creativity and freedom that occurs naturally in youth.  I played in my backyard for hours in my little imaginary world.  There [...]

Nubian goats as pets

About 3 years ago, I decided I wanted to buy some goats.  We didn't even have any pets at the time.  No fish, no turtle, no dog.  One day after John's class (he was in grad school) our little family went on goat finding adventure. We loaded up my dad's truck, hooked up his horse trailer, and headed up to North Florida to pick up [...]
