Day 13  

And this is my nearest neighbor -- Billy the Goat!

The landlord owns him -- well I'm not sure anyone owns goats -- I know when I fed him for a month while they were on vacation -- I found good old Billy a total pain in the ass -- stubborn and obstinate!

Billy, you might recall, was torn to shreds by dogs a year ago -- until DH ran out in his underwear in the middle of the night to fight the dogs and pull Billy to safety. Most of the time I'm very happy we saved him that night, but when I was black & blue from being butted -- I wasn't so sure!

Happy Monday night all.

What next?

    Jacki - glad to see you're back to 365. Loved the shot of Billy - maybe I'll post some of my goats today.

    Is that his 'pen'? Doesn't he have any grass to graze?

    His pen is quite large, -- almost as large as our area -- and no, no grass. What's grass? We don't have grass anywhere around most of the time. But he gets alfafa, and hay, and rabbit grains, and some other stuff -- I fed him for a month, but I don't remember what it all was. He plays tether ball when the heat lifts -- funny as heck to watch him hit that hanging ball with his nose (snout?)every night.
