Disobedience

Disobedience has been running rampant here. Betty and a gang of hoodlum kids made a hole under the side fence in the front pasture and let themselves into the garden where they did not do anything productive. The participants have been issued demerits, and some of them are getting close to their limit. Oh actually one of them was me.

Big Orange and Hannah Belle got turned out in the back pasture to stretch their legs with their babies. They jumped the fence and left their screaming babies behind and started a rumble in the lower pasture that ranged up and down the hill for over an hour.

Everyone in the lower pasture has been issued demerits whether or not they actually participated because the farmer could tell that the ones who weren't participating were just waiting their turn and probably lazy on top of disobedient. Big Orange has been banned from the back pasture.

Willen the fat Haflinger broke the latch on the gate. Then he broke a fence rail.

Pinky kicked over a bucket of milk.

"That's the last straw!" The farmer yelled. But this was premature; there were additional straws to come.

....stay tuned...

Hahaha. You made me laugh out loud three times in just the first paragraph. Can't wait to hear the rest of the story.

Sorry, goatfarmer... here in the Missouri Ozarks the heat index is making the girls insane. Yesterday they decided to celebrate the 4th a little early by freeing the rabbits... and the feed room door... and they tried to free the bucks, but we caught them before they got very far.

Oh my goodness. It sounds like a very intersting days events and it was only 10am. I could just see Charlie and Belle, (Hannah Belles Kids) and Big Orange's kids watching and wondering what is going on!

Big Orange started the rumble because she is disgruntled at being called Big Orange. Hannah Belle started a rumble because Hannah Belle can. Last straws are overrated anyway. Are you ready for a Ruuuummmmmbbblllleeeee?????

There are all kinds of lessons our little ones need to learn--but do they have to learn so many mischievous lessons in one morning???

Goats generally tend to eat the last straw anyhow!

Marigold - Obedience is also grossly overrated!

Whenever we act like that the human says it's because the moon is full.
