Feeding Goats

People always ask us why we have goats.  Do we milk them?  Are they for meat?  Do we raise babies.  No, no, no.  For a long time we had a few goats for no reason.  Then they became useful in their love of pigweed. Now, they are toddler entertainment that lasts a long time.  We found out last weekend at the potluck that Monster Milan is not the only toddler that enjoys hauling weeds to the goats.

It took a little encouragement from the adults at first...

then the little monsters got the hang of it.

I have to say though, one little dude really outdid himself.  Not only did he pull weeds out of the flower bed and then proceed to find the same weeds throughout the garden and pull them, but when I told him he could feed the goats as much of the buggy napa cabbage as he could carry, he took me seriously.  Imagine my surprise when I looked up the field and saw this...

Future farm help??  Love it.
