"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

A Lesson In Herding (Part 2)


What's this? The Might Quinn has moved up . He has graduated to carpenter ants. At 17 weeks isn't he precocious? Even if it is herding, I'm impressed!

Ahhhhhhhh!!! It's coming at him!!! Run, Quinn! Head for the barn! Snort and sound the alarm, for goat's sake!!!!

"What's that you say??? I'm what???"

"You are getting veeeeery sleeeepy......."

Uh,oh. Too late. Someone should have tried to warn him. Never, but never, stop long enough to actually listen to what the ant is saying. Oy. Think we goats are gonna' be safe for a good while longer yet.

Dear Marigold,
I was just wondering if Sir
Quinn is a part of your security patrol force! Or, is the Ant?? Ha!!
Give the lad a chance, dear Marigold......he should be due for assignment duty in a
few years! Meanwhile, I'm sure Ella can handle things.
