Get Your Goat

If that goat is not meant for our farm, then I don’t know what is — would you look at that face??? More importantly — that anteater tongue? My goodness gracious laws-a-mercy ! I go weak at the knees from exposure. Exposure? To unbelievable cuteness. Need a hearty dose of cute?
Would you look at those bright mischievous eyes, those soft furry lips, and those velvety ears? **melts** Speaking of velvet: I was in the car with the radio cranked up the other day and a Garth Brooks song (That Summer) came on and there’s this line:
“And then I watched her hands of leather
Turn to velvet in a touch”
Does this mean that she had furry hands? I want to know.
And this one? My wonderful husband looking like a Wranglers commercial for homesteaders. Am I right? **swoon**
Obviously this goat is wondering about that Garth Brooks and his furry-handed woman, too. Would you look at that smile?
These goats belong to the neighbor of John, our friend with Irish Dexters, and I don’t have to tell you that goats are on the list of animals we want on our farm. Josh will be fencing all winter in preparation for dairy goats this spring. Yes, that’s right: dairy goats. Vegans beware: I fully plan on making cheese, yogurt, and soap with their milk — then posting how-tos and results on the site.
Anyone care to answer my many questions (ranging from velvet hands to favorite pictures)?
