For the love of goats. I know my readers all needed a goat fix today because…GOATS.
There is nothing like a goat. Last year I made my first visit to Carl Sandburg National Historic Site.
I fell in love with the goats. All the goats. You can read about it here.
This past Friday Chris worked part of the day and then we headed over to Flat Rock to take a hike around the park and to see the goats. I was hoping for some babies and since we were earlier than our visit last year I was not sure if there would be any but as luck would have it we saw two babies.
Mama Anya with twins born on St. Patrick’s Day – Ash and Alish.
Don’t worry about the spots on their heads. None of the goats we saw had horns so I imagine they remove those when they are born and since Alish here is only a few week-old it is very noticeable.
There is just nothing that makes me smile bigger than goats. Well, maybe alpacas.
Babs adopted Chris and wouldn’t let him leave without sidling up to him and head butting him gently till he paid attention to her.
How fun are these goats? If you are ever in the area I would highly recommend that you make a visit. Even if you don’t tour the house or hike the trails a visit to the Goat Barn is a must see.

Thanks for the goat fix! The babies are soooo cute. Dot would want to play with them. xo
Happy to give you goat pics anytime. I might have a few on my camera….
When I was in college, my parents got a couple of goats. So cute.
Oh I would have been home all of the time if my parents had goats. 🙂
Those babies are just too dang cute! But those holes are a little disconcerting….
The babies were awfully cute and I get why they take the horns off but if you didn’t know that was what happened it would be a bit startling. They all seem fine with it. 🙂
Made me smile! I have a friend who used to have goats and the baby ones always captured my heart.
They are just so fun and they always make me giggle when they hop around. Last year when we went they had little sweaters on and that was perfect. Love them !
That last photo…,oh, so darned cute. That goat knows how to pose already for selfies. Baby animals just make us happy, don’t they? And we all could use some happy every day.
Yes! I did love that goat and they made me so happy. It was a very good day.
There’s a reason for the old saying; money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you a baby goat, which is pretty close…
Goats are fun. I love to feed them they get so obnoxious, it’s usually hilarious. 🙂
They are wonderful, aren’t they? Welcome home, friend ! Hope you are getting rested up !What a great trip you had!
Thanks! It’s been a whirl wind and I’m still
Thanks. It’s been a whirlwind and I’m still digesting everything! Jet lag is still a bit of an issue but it’s getting better. 🙂
I think this is your best goat selfie yet. And I love that Babs adopted Chris. They are such cute animals.
I agree. I love this one. And of course I did not know it had its tongue out until I looked at it later. I should have stuck my tongue out. And Babs loved Chris. Something about that name……
Who doesn’t enjoy some good goat pictures! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
