"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

Just Ducky

Imagine the goatmother's surprise last night when she came out to feed us and happened upon this in the pond - and she didn't even have to ooze. Who knew?

There appear to be seven. Not enough for a ball team this year, but that's okay. Maybe they'll take up golf instead. Ducky Woods? Arnold Pecker? Hey, it could happen.

In the meatime, we here at the barn have a lot of quacking to put up with. No matter. We'll encourage them to keep on swimming toward whatever their goals. Besides, we might learn a thing or two ourselves in the process.

"Always behave like a duck - keep calm and unruffled on the surface, but paddle like the devil underneath." - Jacob Braude.

Awwww! Not as cute as baby goats, but at least they don't leave hoof prints on your pants.
