I guess the best kind of goatie friend to have is one you can snack off of!

What a creative new word! It truly is accurate. My geese like to backsnack with their goat friends.

My boys say that they would never backsnack. That'd be the same as eating wilted parsley. Yuck.

Poor Cookie the buck must taste really good because Ringo the wether has backsnacked him pretty much bald in the last couple of weeks at our house.

OH - this is too funny. I have followed your blog for quite a while now, (love it) and I think this is my favorite post to date! My own girls are also shedding their undercoats up here in the Cascade foothills of Washington state, and they make really terrific hay gatherers as a result....
