Lily goat meets Jack the Kelpie. Clearly life is benign out here in the paddocks.
Lily stands on her kennel
She sleeps on her kennel
she sleeps IN her kennel
and Lily the Boer goat head-butts her kennel till it tips over and then she still sleeps in it. as you see from my photos, she is continually amusing to me.

  1. Of course she is. She is beautiful as well as entertaining.
    And goodness, how green and lush it is.

    1. Thanks for your visit dear El Chi. Yes a bit too lush and Lily not eating it down fast enough. I have to whip round with the ride-on to keep the Shire from issuing a fire risk notice. All the recent rain means it will be green through January for the big farms stock though. Wishing you well.

  2. Goats are so funny, as long as they are contained.

    1. 'contained' is spot-on dear CameraFace. I have to attach a chain to her collar before I can go into the paddock as she head-butts me, wanting to play.

    1. Thanks for your visit Anne - when Lily was pushing her kennel off its hill she turned and gave me 'a look' between each butt. Only God knows what it meant. Hope you and the kitties are cool today.

  4. The kelpie is Australian dog that specialises in mustering and droving sheep, of course, but also goats. In the first photo, I think Jack is just doing what kelpies do - mustering Lily under difficult circumstances.

    1. Thanks for your visit Hels. You are correct of course, he just wanted to round her up and run her somewhere, anywhere. Jack is a working dog on our 800 hectare cattle farm on the Coleraine road. He can run a mile uphill in a flash and is a dear thing. Kelpies are SO intelligent.

  5. I didn't know goat kennels were a thing. There you go. You learn something new every day.
