Goats and mental blockage

Dean and Jerry arrived a week ago today. They are cute as can be and I am falling in love with them very quickly. In fact, it is almost rather pathetic. I spend hours playing with them in their pen and worry about them when I am out and about. Forget becoming a crazy old cat lady--I'm going to turn into a crazy old goat lady. Argh! Ah well, at least it's a unique sort of fate. Right? ;)

Really, though--I'm sure I'll chill out a bit once I start back to work on Monday.

So anyway, back to Dean and Jerry. The goats each have a very distinct look and personality. Jerry is black with a few white spots, and has a really nice dark brown coat coming in with lots of crimp in it. He is extremely friendly, and acts rather like a little dog (wags his tail, licks, and everything!). Jerry loves the kids, and cries like a baby when you leave the pen.

Dean, on the other hand, is a little more stand-offish and aloof. He was not bottle fed, so all of this human interaction makes him nervous. He's warming up though--today he ran to the gate when Sky went out to see them and seemed right friendly! Dean's coat is really thick and fluffy (and cream-colored), and his eyes are light blue. So beautiful!


I have a whole lot more to say, but I'm just not sure how to get it out. I guess I'll sign off for now.


"Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden wit Christ in God." Colossians 3:2 What a delightful thought--to be hidden with Christ.
