whoo hoo oo.. er

Two hours of clipping later, and I'm covered in millions of little bits of fur, and Siena has a bad haircut. Really, really bad. Clipping = still not the most fun you can have with a goat. Siena would also like to lodge a formal objection to the concept of "bath time".

Why do I feel more guilty hosing down a goat than a dog? The dogs act more miserable. Goat just seems so confused, though. :-(

Our second show ever coming up Saturday! Siena's breeder is one of the judges. Hopefully she will approve of the condition of her goat. Hopefully all the judges will take pity on my obvious cluelessness and not laugh me out of the ring.

Appraisal is more or less set for late Sept. - just have to fork out kind of a lot of cash. Really want a thorough evaluation of my goat, though. And I was talked into another show early in the month. I think I won't clip her for that one. :-P

I wonder if blogger has some kind of calendar function? That would be handy.


  1. eh. Go search it.

    (bleh. that wasn't very helpful)

  2. LOL. I did, right after I posted. I now have a calendar page! And more pages! Blogger is actually kind of fun.

  3. Hi!! Found you via DGI & am now your blogger follower! :-)

    I too have a Lamancha....he's the lone earless wonder in a slew of Alpines & I swear he has me hooked on the breed! They are so funny & much so that I put a deposit on two does to bring home in September!!

    You can see the intro to my Lamancha boy "Tonka" at the bottom of this blog post (scroll down for pictures):

    The rest of my blog is a mish mash of everything... Though this goat addiction is serious stuff & almost every other blog post is about the goats & is goat pictures... lol

    Good luck at your upcoming show, your babies are beautiful!

    Best Wishes,

  4. Hi Crystal! Nice to meet you! LaManchas are awesome. Course I have no experience with anything else, so other goats are probably awesome, too. XD

    LOL. I had to start a separate blog for goats cause they were filling up my silly blog. They are too much fun.

    Thank you!

  5. Lamanchas are awesome! I've had Nubians ages ago....Took a goat break...then got miniature alpines....then standard Alpines, & then Lamanchas....They are quickly becoming my favorite!!

    Since I'm your blog follower now I'll keep up with ya, so do come back & post how your show goes....And of course you must post pictures! ;)
