Needy Devil Goat

Esmeralda has changed obsessions from Chief to Murtel. Chief was thrilled to finally get her to fixate on someone other then him. However poor Murtel could not shake the devil goat for the whole day and as the sun started to set tonight I saw Murtel running around in circles hoping to tire out the old gal but no such luck. So they headed to the barn and I am sure I will have to hear all about at morning chores. Esmeralda was not the only one wanting love today - Maggie spent a good part of the morning and into the afternoon screaming for the boys who are clear on the other side of the farm. She was so noisy that I yelled at her several times like that would make her stop - I admit it was to make me feel as if I have some control over things - Yeah Right!!!!

That's funny. We used to have a cow named Beatrix that used to do that once a month - she would moo her head off. After awhile the steers would look at her and moo "shut up, we don't care..." then she would be quiet for a little while and then they would start the whole thing over again. You have my sympathies for love-sick animals.

We have no control on the farm! LOL!!
My Madeline goat has been wandering around crying for the past two days and there is no buck here! I hope she's over it this morning.

I know the saying is "The heart wants what the heart wants" but really it is getting too loud for this place. I would have thought the girls would have enjoyed a year off from being expecting and then have little one's attached to their teats all the time - Guess I was wrong..

Well if you didnt raise such handsome Billies, they cant stand the thought of not being able to go on a date;) What I am surprised about is that the boys seem to be behaving themselves. Who would have thought? I would have thought they would have found a way by now. Ops, I should not say that.
