People say goats will eat anything and everything.
This is simply not true. Not one of my goats will eat a pastrami on rye with Dijon mustard. Maybe it’s the mustard? They won’t eat chicken eggs either. Or people… Thankfully.
But they will eat every leaf and strip the branches off a young fruit tree. In nanoseconds… I can promise you that. They also like to eat fresh-cut wood.
I will tell you they are highly curious animals. They can’t help but get into, check out, knock over, climb upon and taste everything.
The other day. I was outside chopping more wood, taking advantage of the good weather. Within a few minutes Chiba, Sweet Pea and Riley were stepping out of the barn and peeking around the trailer to see what was “going down” around the farm.
Of course they had to know. And taste. And explore.
Then the fire pit became the focus of their curiosity…
Then the hunt was on for new adventure…
And that was enough goat adventure for one afternoon… ~A (P.S. “Sweet Pea” is hopefully pregnant – with a due date of April 8th…)
