Sometimes I Can’t Believe


….that I went most of my life without knowing a goat.

They’re worth all the heartache.

And part of their charm is that….
….they know it.

    Beautiful pictures.I think I’m in my goat phase (goes along with my sheep phase!)Have you read the book Goat Song? Very funny/interesting account of a first year raising goats.
    I just recently found your blog and I love it.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Goats are my very favorite homestead animal of all that we’ve had. Can you believe their different personalities? What a lot of fun and enjoyment.

    Who knew? I have gone my entire life without knowing a goat. It’s all about cows where I’m from. Your goats look adorable. I bet I would like them. I have recently started following your blog and have enjoyed every minute.

    We moved to WV last summer and we now have 5 goats! Once you get one, you always want more! We love them and they are so fun to just sit and watch!

    I agree! We love our goats and life would not be the same without them.

    Suzanne you sure do get me off to a good start in the morning. First I read my family emails…then I go right to ‘Chickens In the Road’ to see what you and you family have been up to on the farm. After reading about your goats I know that we just have to have a few….once we fix the fences and put up a few more. I am SOOOO happy that we are now ‘living the dream’ and you and your Blog are are part of our journey. When you write a book about your life on the farm I want one!

    Very Very Sweet!!!…. Are you going to Still Meadows farm tommorrow? I read in the Gazette that they are having a fall festival starting at 9am. They will be making Apple butter outside! And they have a shop with primitives for sale and things made here in WV. Its near you in Walton! They have a website, its not updated with the fall festival news, but it has directions. Hope to see you there!

    I so want a goat, but Emma reminded me that they don’t allow them in apartments and, besides, she’s Queen Cat around here and wouldn’t allow a goat to live with us. Darn. So I’ll just keep reading your blog, drooling over your pictures (goats as well as food) and dreaming.

    :fairy: I just love your goats……Back in the Dark Ages when I was young my Grandfather had a cattle ranch in northern New Mexico and they had goats in the ranch house area. One visit, I had a fit to take a little black and brown sweet boy home with me. My Dad tried to say no but Grandfather’s are a power of nature all their own. We’ll we drove 2.5 hours in a sedan back to Albuquerque with this little darling pooping in my Dad’s new car. oops. When I went to school the next week, my little Nixie Pixie went to live on a farm in the valley. I was…..heartbroken. Some day, in my next life time, I’ll have goats or settle for watching yours be….well goats. Thanks.

    yes they do!! how cute. I am extra in awe of your photograpy progress today. I was trying to take pictures of my grandaughter while pumpkin picking and it was a challenge. My digital pauses when you hit the button. Well, by the time it takes the damn picture, my beautiful grandaughter has stopped looking.

  12. Breezy says:

    I love your blog! and those goats are just too cute for words.

  13. Shelly says:

    I want a few goats too!

  14. Jo says:

    Just reading your blog makes me want goats….but what is their practical purpose? I guess I’m the sort that will get something if it’s “practical”. I can’t help it. Do you milk them? If so, what do you use the milk for? I have never tried goats milk before, I’m afraid I wouldn’t like it. Convince me! We just moved to an acreage last January and I will be getting chickens in the spring. Can hardly wait!!! :sheepjump: :snoopy:

  15. Nancy says:

    I just bought some goat cheese at the farmers market…dried tomato and garlic…I used it in a quiche with spinach, onion and cherry tomatoes…yum!

    I love your goats and farm stories. I have goat envy but I live in the city. So I druel over Clover. I just ordered Clover’s calendar! Now I can have a goat in my house (at least her picture).
