Occupy the KP

Okay we started our own Occupy movement and right now we are occupying the middle pasture where the milkers and the upper 1% (BP et al) get grain and alfalfa. Unlike us, we only get grass hay and a smattering of grain and none of us have jackets or parkas not that we want them they look ridiculous.

But anyway we are occupying. That's mostly because the fence is broken and several other things broke after the fence broke and the other things are on a priority track while the fence is languishing in its broken state. Meaning that anyone who could jump over a caterpillar can jump over the fence.

Even Betsy got out and she is the most Nubian of all our remaining Nubian crosses. Right now she is occupying a little patch of land in front of the buck pen, walking back and forth and yelling out her demands in a very unambiguous manner.

We are putting together a list of other demands besides Betsy's and we will present them to someone if anyone ever shows up. If no one shows up we will present them to Wendell.

Let us know if you would like to join our  movement I have a feeling it will go viral. Or maybe I am just coming down with something. Anyway it is the only Occupy movement on the Key Peninsula so you will probably be hearing about it on the news. Or maybe not.

Power to the 99%!!!!

I'll come if you provide those scones I hear so much about.

Would that be a caterpillar in the Wooly Booger sense, or in Hannah Belle's case, a caterpillar in the big-yellow-industrial-sized-road-vehicle sense? If it is the Wooly Booger kind, I think I could manage it. If it is the other, I'll leave it to Hannah Belle and yell encouragements from the side line.

I recently found your blog while researching goats for a school project(I am a MFA student at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland) and would appreciate talking with you. The blog is so current and fun! I couldn't find contact information- have time for a chat? Thanks!

We are occupied with our own bucks. Our recommendation would be to include a demand for daily peanut deliveries on your list.

Helen was so inspired that she started an Occupy movement in the neighbor's cow paddock, so you can see it really has gone viral. Unfortunately it was short-lived, as she was forced to abandon her post at Milking Time.

We had our movement here, but the human came and now we've all been jailed in the barnyard. No more occupying the neighboring woods and cornfield for us.
