Oops...Kid Goat In Trouble

Yesterday evening I was washing dishes and heard the unmistakable sound of a kid goat in trouble. The larger goats, with horns, can really put out a holler when they have their heads stuck. The younger kids tend to not get stuck, but it happens from time to time. They are "Curious George's," as I like to call them!

A moment after I heard the kid goat obviously working hard at releasing herself, I heard hysterical giggles from my husband. He calls to me, "Come here, quickly!" Barely able to talk through his laughter, he says, "Hurry, you have to see this!" I had my camera next to me since I had been taking photos of the new Annie's Goat Hill goat milk soaps a few moments earlier.

The tiny doeling had her head stuck in his coat pocket! Curiousity had gotten the best of her. She was fine. But then we laughed again until tears flowed because the kid then decided to just stand there, head stuck in all of her glory. She didn't seem to mind. Tee hee...there I go again!

It is a busy Monday! I have a newsletter to work on (for this week's release), paperwork at the desk, and some grain for the goats to pick up. I squeeze a lot of activity in between feedings.

Have a wonderful day!

LOL, silly goaties, probably thought there might have been some treats in there.

Too precious for words. Oh, that little head. I want one in MY pocket, Mary. Will you loan that sweet doeling to me? Just for, say, six months or until the Homeowner's Association finds out?

What a cute picture! They sure can find new and unusual ways to get themselves into trouble can't they?
