We bought a goat. Ugh, that hurt to admit. This isn’t our first goat but it is our first goat since our first goat which I swore would be our last goat. Did you catch all that? Our first goat was Charlie. Remember Charlie? Johnny Cash & Charlie: A Year Later
Why in the world would I agree to another goat? Well, we have officially reached rodeo age at our house. The kids go to a weekly play day/rodeo. They are able to enter events such as barrels, pole bending, dummy roping and goat tying for Degnan's age group. He has been expressing an interest in tying goats for a few months. Our first clue was when I broke up a knock down drag out fight between him and Josie. The fight was brought on by Degnan tying Josie's cat up like a goat. My second clue was when I found him flanking Rawhide and tying him down. I had put it off as long as possible but for the sake of the cats, dogs, sisters and Degnan's physical well being, it was time to get the kid a kid. Get it? I am soooo funny tonight. It's goat delirium.
Austin and the kids went to the small animal auction this evening. I wasn't able to go due to work. I have to admit, I am a little/lot disappointed that I missed the kids' first small animal auction. It's kind of like missing their first steps. It's life changing. I can't wait to hear the stories. What I can wait to do is meet the goat. Austin called a bit ago and they are on their way home with what I consider to be a ridiculously over priced goat. Seriously overpriced. I am insisting they name it Neiman Marcus.
I am sure this won't be my last goat post. All I can say is, that thing better eat sticker plants.
