Cute Goats!

Nothing much cuter than a baby goat.  My neighbors have these little pygmy goats.  I got to take care of them one weekend and snapped these pictures then.

I don't think these guys will get much bigger.

Indoors, I got the rest of my firewood into the shop for keeping my studio warm this winter.  Tonka helped.

Wait a minute!  That isn't cord wood!  That is zucchini!

I made these feather hanging things and hung them out in my woods along the trails. 


Some wild art.  I will be curious to see how long these pieces survive.

Been having trouble with blogger lately, it won't allow my photos to show.  Lets see if these will show up.  I hope so.  Such a hassle trying to put up a post only to have the photos not show up when the photos are really what makes my blog.
Oh well.

I am struggling with blog today...but I love the feathers along the walkways in your surrounding your home in the country. Peace, Mary Helen

Blue eyed goat? Are sure you have enough wood to keep you warm? Tonka is a regular Paul Bunyan! And did you pluck those feathers from the zucchinis? Silly city boy has so many questions.

Very cute goats :-).....and I love the colours in those feathers. They'd be lovely to draw/paint.

I wish I had a wood burning stove in MY freezing, paper getting floppy in the damp, studio!

The goats are so cute. I think I want one or two of the little sweeties. Wow! Look at all of that wood. Chain saw man has been busy. Good to see blogger is being less of a stinker and letting you show some photos so we're not missing out on seeing those feather thingies. Lovely blue, isn't it? Have a great weekend.

Sometimes Blogger is the devil to work with. But the "curse and hack" method works sometimes.
Great feather do's, I love them. Lots of contrast and fun.
Goats....big, little, they are all funny and slightly weird. Those slanty pupil eyes always get me. That and how they jump straight up in the air. Fun beasties. Oma Linda

Grat face on that first goat, looks like quite an imp. The featered things are intriguing.

Maggi said...

No problems with the photos this time Jan. I just love goats. your feather things are great and it will be good for you to see them when you go for walks. Here's hoping they last a long time.

Is it starting to get cold up there?
I love the little goats, I wonder if they eat less. My neighbor had goats, and they would come in to my yard and eat everything in sight I did not like them then.
They even ate my aloe.
I love that you hung feathers in the forest. Nature decorations?
Cool!
Have a happy Halloween, my friend.
I love your header with all of the hearts you have done. That looks fantastic.

Beautiful goats. I would love a wood burning stove, had one at home. But the people who used to live in this house removed all fireplaces and the chimney stack. I will never know why.
Keep warm.

The feathers won't survive. I'm coming to "borrow" them. That blue is amazing! Ok, here's the city kid in my talking but I've never seen feathers like that before. And wow look at all that wood! Oh I can almost smell those fires now. And LOVE those cute lil goats!!

Those goats are so cute! I love the feathers -- just beautiful!

I love the first foto Jan, it is a very good shot from your goat. The wild art will probably survive serverial years when it is inside, I got once a mandaly made with them it held decades. Have a sunny autumn, I heard you got a lot snow already at the other coast of America, we saw the pictures at TV, here it is very nice and warm good for putting tulips and other bulps into earth.
