When I had a Goat... Never again!

I still remember the surprise when my husband came home with a baby goat... how cute, I thought. Boy was I wrong! A baby goat or kid as it's called, is just as much work as a human baby but in an annoying kind of way. I had no idea what I was in for until I had enough of him. We decided to name him Rylo and he was cute as a pet, for a while.

As he grew up he followed us everywhere and of course ate every flower I ever had! If you ever saw a crazy lady chasing a goat screaming “stay away from my roses!” … yeah, that was me. I knew then he would be our first and last goat I would ever care to have.

Besides leaving us without a single one of the flowers that I broke my back planting, he also left us with lots of fun memories. In these photos for example, my little girl Sophie carrying him are just one of many fun times we had with him. =)
