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"

Goat One-upmanship: Bart & Brownie

"I'm the biggest, most wonderful and handsome goat on Three Dog Farm. I command respect and I take care of business. I'm brave and I can jump higher than any of the other goats. I'm the king of the pasture and head of the pack."
"Yah? But does he have a horn? I don't see any horns. I have a horn. Well..., it's not very big and I don't know what happen to the other one, but I can butt better than any of the other goats, as long as I lean to the right. I may not be the biggest but I'm unique. Bart tries to push his weight around here, but we know who the real "head" master is, don't we?"

LOL... you got yourself your own set of billy goat gruffs. I love the ONE horn. And those ears... I just want to grab them and play with them.

In response to your comment, yes, I am ok. Just another day in the trenches for me. I do get one night a week to go do grocery shopping NO KIDS ALLOWED but I would love a vacation in my own empty house ;-)

One horn! Your goats are really the stuff of stories, and they are cute. Maybe they will skip the peeing on the beards thing that billies do.
