It's goat time!

I just need to share one of my favorite bits of summer with all of you today. A couple of weeks ago the nanny goats at Shelburne Farms kidded and there are now 4 beautiful kids to visit in the Children's Farmyard. I love goats. They are very smart and love to get into trouble. I bet the goats would get along wonderfully with my equally smart siamese cat Indigo who also loves to get in trouble. (Does anyone sense a pattern here?) I bet they would be great at helping with my knitting. Almost as good as Indigo is at getting into the yarn. I'm not sure that Indigo would be quite so pleased to meet the goats however. He would make loud growly noises and get all puffy instead of making friends with the goats. He doesn't know what he's missing. Some of you know that while I love goats and goat kids I do have a bit of an ulterior motive. I really appreciate goat cheese and we all know that those nanny goats have to have kids before we can enjoy fresh goat milk and make cheese! Yum :)
