The new kid: Tucker the Goat gets hungry

 If you weren't around the ranch this summer, then you probably haven't met our newest kid, Tucker. Tucker, the goat, came to us last summer as a little baby, a kid, and is rapidly growing into a billy goat. And when I say rapidly growing, I mean growing like a sausage, rounder and rounder and rounder by the day. 

 Tucker has one word. It is "MAAAAAAAAAAAAA!". You can hear his distinct cry from all corners of the ranch. He is often mistaken for a trapped small child.

 Tucker has one thought. It is food. If there is food, there is Tucker.
 Tucker is in love with Peyton. Mostly because she is assosiated with food. Also because she takes him on walks. And climbs trees with him. Not that he likes exercise. He probably assumes there just might be more food in the tree.

Tucker is quite the character. His eyes are very human and you can all but hear his little goat voice.
 "MAAAAAAAAA, soooo, you gonna feed that scoop today? I could eat it. I am FAMISHED. Starving. Downright hungry."

"Soooo, ummm, you gonna eat that hay over there or what, horse?"

 "You know, Bessie, the hay tastes much better when you actually climb inside the feeder. I just love surrounding myself with food."

 "What? I was hungry!"

I'd love visit these beautiful ranches so that I can finally put my horse riding lessons sydney to good use. The captions are so funny and it gives whimsy to the photos.

Upon seeing your photographs of this adorable goat, I came to realize that I want one. Right now I am trying to convince my dad to get one since he will also benefit from it. There must be a lot of space at our farm for several more goats.

It look pretty ideal to have a goat in your farm. But if I were to get one myself then might as well get fences installed for their protection.

I remember when I got my first goat which we are having with us from a very long time to get some milk. It is good for the kids to spend some time with kids when such animals are around.
