Spring on the farm is special for many reasons, but when it comes to cute, baby goats are head and shoulders above the petunias. You don’t even have to be a “goat person” to fall in love with the wee ones. I speak of what I know, because, I am technically NOT a card carrying “goat person”. There are several “goat people” on the farm, one, who’s first name starts with two vowels, is the Chairperson of the Board of Goat People.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t like goats, but as the animal rule book defines us, I am a pig person. Given that distinction, I can’t help but get a little soft when a new kid arrives. Spring brings babies and three have been born in the last two days. All three are uber adorable. Plus, unlike a piglet, they like to be held, sometimes. Pigs have an innate fear of their feet leaving the ground, hence the expression, “When pigs fly”. Learn something new everyday!
Now, back to the kids! Take a look at these photos and video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERxpNi4NGc8
Cute, right? Come down to the Corner Market and see them. Who knows, there may be a kid born today!
