It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Brownie: Goat with a purpose

When we brought Brownie home from the goat farm he was the sweetest, most affectionate goat of all the four. It was as if he wanted to be our goat and go home with us...., as if he had a plan.

Well, I think he did! He is still the most affectionate. But now, he can really get in your face. Still, I didn't know what his "Plan" was. He just wanted attention and he seemed so needy.
So, this morning I'm helping the Prospector trim Bart's toe nails, and Brownie is doing his usual cuteness at the fence. We put Bart back in with the other goats, thankful that he was the only one who needed to have a pedicure. Then, I went and got my camera.
I started taking pictures at the fence and who was front and center? Mr"Say cheese" .......,Brownie.
Look at that face. Even with a piece of alfalfa in his nose, he's cute. I reached in with my left hand( camera ready in my right one) to give brownie a neck rub and that's when it happen.....
Look at that innocent stare!; All sweetness and light. Look at the determined look on his face. Look...., at what he has in his mouth. That would be my tee shirt. Guess that was his "plan" all along.

Brownie, you sly goat; I'm on to you now.
