"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

If It Wasn't Official Before...

Hey, Ho! Peanut here! Well, some of us have it and some of us don't. What can I say? I've been voted cutest kid - twice. Not that I'm conceited or anything, but I do have good genes. Why, my sister was named Grand Champion Nigerian Doeling for the whole state of Washington! My brother, Goatzilla, was on the cover of GQ magazine. My mother, Hannah Belle Lecter, will go down in the annals of goatdom for most time spent escaping into and out of anything in her path. And, of course it goes without saying, that my grandmother was none other than the inimitable Baby Belle. Like I said, good genes.

Anyway, now goatgirl, my sister Cora Belle's goatmother, has graciously included my picture on her wonderful website, Minter Bay Dairy Goats. I am so flattered. Thank you, goat girl! And if you all would like to see my picture over there, along with all the other nice goats, you can go here. I have to say, I think Auntie Marigold may be a bit jealous. Well, be careful Auntie. After all, "jealousy is the tribute mediocrity pays to genius." - Fulton J. Sheen, and that would make me the smart one, wouldn't it?

Oh, hay, I'll just go ahead and say it for her ... OY.
