The Welcome Wagon

Not much exciting happens here in the winter. Unless a tree blows down or a roof flies off or a coyote turns up in our pasture.

The winter is quite dull. Unless we get a new girl.

Last year we got Moldy the simperer.

This year Gracie is here. Gracie is not really a new girl. She was born here. She is a great-granddaughter of Marty our favorite Nubian but she is mostly LaMancha so she has improved intelligence, which is nice for her because she can find the barn by herself.

She went to live with a new family and only comes back to visit the buck during breeding season. That only happens once a year so almost everyone has forgotten her by the time she comes back. She should wear a red suit like Santa maybe that would help.

In this video she is only wearing a purple collar while everyone extends a friendly New Girl welcome to her.

Very cool video! I love how the music fits their actions. Goat relationships are so interesting to watch. They are so intelligent.

Now that was a perfectly excellent goat borrow for the day!
(loved the music as well!)

Obviously they are acting this way because they have no ears. That is why the butting is so polite. I can tell you that goats with ears a far less polite in that respect. I think it has to do with dihedral angulation.

She looks like she's saying, "Where's Mo? Where's Prancer? Where's Zinnia the Annoying? And why, oh why are you all invading my personal space?!"

Don't worry Gracie, the Farmer says you'll come home soon! :-)
