We Are Family!

29 Feb

I often talk about the close family relationships the goats have.  When we were walking out in pasture the other day, I looked over and saw Kizzy with all of her descendants.

Front to back: Bonnie, Blaze, Kizzy, Mary and Gidget

When we got half way across the Back Forty, I was ahead of the goats.  Look who came over the hill together.

Three generations: Maa Blaze, Grandkid Gidget and Grandmaa Kizzy.

I hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are at the top of my side bar.

I’m sharing today’s post with Kathy at Song-ography for the song We are Family by Sister Sledge.  Oops.  I forgot it was our week for a suggested song.  Does this work for Hello by Adele?

    I love goat cheese! Do you raise them for milking?

      I do milk them to make soap. I also sell the kids for meat.

    • Teresa March 1, 2016 at 6:29 am #

      I don’t know. Sometimes I get on a theme. Other times it’s just whatever seems to fit.

    Family is always important. Love the shots.

      It really is important in the goats.

    So cute to see them! The three coming over the hill remind me of the opening scene in the old TV series Bonanza! All brothers of course and these are not, but that was my first thought when I saw the picture!

      That’s funny. They just needed Bonnie or Mary to join them to have four of them coming over the hill.

    Loving the names, too. I have a friend who has cats named Idget and Gidget

    • Teresa March 1, 2016 at 6:56 pm #

      That’s cute for a pair of cats!

    That is wonderful that your goat families stick together. They are all so cute, great photos. Enjoy your day!

    • Teresa March 1, 2016 at 6:56 pm #

      They really do. It always amazes me how they keep that close bond for life.

    (Nothing like getting behind in the reading!) It’s always so neat to read about how the families stay together! And Kizzy’s family is extra special, because of that wonderful coloration!

      Parent-teacher conferences this week. I’m horribly behind too. Thanks so much for coming to visit and catch up.

      Thanks for hosting! I do enjoy it. I might already have my song picked out for this coming week!
