Cooties Don’t Kill

27 Dec

After six months of acting like she thought her daughter would die from my cooties, I think Daisy and I are convincing Bambi that cooties don’t kill.

Success!  She might eventually become a sweetie too.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt this week.  I have the items listed at the top of my side bar.

Making Progress

20 Sep

I seem to be making progress with Daisy.  She has suddenly started coming up to me looking for scratches between her horns.

Even more amazingly, I think she’s influencing her maa, Bambi.  I’ve actually gotten to pet her too.

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

This and That About Some Kids

8 Sep

For those that have been following along with Cutie and her broken leg, I am very pleased to announce that she’s doing amazingly well!  It doesn’t slow her down.  The knee is completely perfectly bendy.  I can still tell the shoulder needs a little more healing, but she’s doing well.  You can also see, for once, Gomez didn’t have his head stuck in a fence.  I will be relieved when he gets sold this weekend (as long as everything goes as planned).

You know I have to have at least one naughty goat.  Red didn’t stay weaned more than a few minutes.  Luckily, he hasn’t had his head stuck again.  I still worry about him though.  I don’t know what I’m going to do with him.  I don’t want to sell him before the pumpkin patch is done because he’s such a sweet boy.  People would love him.

Then there’s Daisy.  If you remember, I want to keep her, but she’s a brat (thanks to her bratty mama).  Well, she’s made an amazing discovery.  It feels awesome to have scratches behind the horns!  I hold one finger out, and she’ll inch forward until she can use it to scratch.

Pretty soon, she’s just a wild woman letting me scratch all around those horns.  I’m making progress!

We’ll see how this goes.  I do adore her looks.  Little brat.

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