New House Dogs


The undisputed “king of the mountain,” the Horned Devil is a mid-size, hardy canine. Known for agility on uneven terrain, the Horned Devil’s bravado masks a docile personality. While technically classed as a working dog, the Horned Devil rarely evidences any sign of effort other than eating.

If bucks were like rams, it’d be like Mean Rooster all over again. Luckily, they’re not like rams. Unluckily, they’re not really dogs, either. Though they’d like to be.

It was only a matter of time, was it not?

Project #1 this weekend: Get Eclipse and Sailor back in the duck ‘n’ buck yard!

Before they start in on my hair.

    Poor chicken! Poor cat (is that Spice?)! Their space has been invaded. Pretty soon Glory Bee will be walking up the steps to the porch.

    Apparently, You, haven’t been bringing cookies to them often enough , so they decided to come see what the problem was…LOL

  3. Sheila Z says:

    The only thing the boys are going to respect is electricity. Run a hot wire top and bottom around the duck and buck yard.

  4. Cheryl LeMay says:

    Oh Boy! You’d better fix that quick, or they’ll be teaching it to the other bucks and then they’ll ALL be hanging out on the porch with you.

    I wouldn’t mind goats on my porch. Except for the poop. I thought someone said in the forums that goats were no respecters of the electric fence, figuring out a way around it? Perhaps re-doing the fence with about 4-6 inches buried under and angled in?

  6. CindyP says:

    They miss the goat yard, but figured they’d check out the upper level first!


    Awww….they were just checking it out. Kinda like going to a new restaurant that you’re not particularly impressed with BUT you don’t want to rule it completely out.
    Now if they start sitting in the rocking chairs and requesting margaritas, I’d be a little worried.
    Great day to you, Suzanne!

    Oh my, they sure are hungry little critters. Or they sure like their fibre. I guess they haven’t figured out they shouldn’t be getting it from your clothing ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a lovely weekend. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather ๐Ÿ™‚ :woof:

    Bad bad bad goats!!!! King of the mountain is right. Next they are going to move into the house, sit down at the dinner table and demand seconds!

  11. LisaAJB says:

    I think it’s sweet that once they were out they could have gone anywhere, but they came to see you! I love the picture of Eclipse with the rooster in the background. Gorgeous!

  12. DancesInGarden says:

    Is it wrong that I found this absolutely hilarious? Especially the fact that they came and took a nibble on your jeans and shirt? Tee hee!

    You’ll have to change the name to “Chickens in the Road…Goats on the Porch.” ๐Ÿ˜†

  14. Mountain Blessings says:

    :happyflower: They are just too cute! All your animals have such cool personalities!

  15. msmitoagain says:

  16. Window On The Prairie says:

    I love your cat’s expression. “oh really, this is a bit much. Just how many animals do I have to share MY porch with?” Tee hee.
