Relatives,the Electrict Chair, Good By Goaties and Donkey Toe Nails

I'm back!  We had a nice visit with Hubby's family..his mom,brother SIL and 2 nieces and nephew! City Mouse was one of the nieces,her sister... we'll call her Shopping Girl is not a fan of country life, mainly because we have no place to shop way out here!  Little Nephew we will call Goatie Boy because after 5 minutes inside he would begin to repeat,"I want to see the goats!"  I think he has pretty good taste myself!  We did the usual running around that comes with family visiting from out of town. City Mouse wanted to go to Huntsville and see the prison museum ,the home of  Ole' Sparky the electric chair!


She wants to be a police woman so she was very interested in the museum and seeing the prison. She even got to see the prisoners out working the fields with the armed guards on horseback watching over them!

Of course everyone had their pictures taken in the jail cell! City Mouse...



Shopping Girl...




Goatie Boy...



Some things that went on around the farm last week....We sold 3 of  our little goats! The Nibletts....

Hoss...


and Tube Sock went to a home with 4 children! That really made me happy! Though my heart is a little sad that those two sweet,sweet goaties are gone !


While these two were on Craig's List a lady responded and ask did we have any bucks. I told her we had 2 but they were younger. She came out and bought Bo Diddly !


We also had the farrier out to do Sweetie and Bonnie and Clyde's "toe nails" and this time I remembered to get a few shots...well, I only remembered at the end and all I got was Bonnie the Donkey!


Sweetie and Clyde do pretty good getting their hoofs done but not our Bonnie! It is a Donkey wrestling match! She decided she couldn't get away so she would try and lay down!


Every time the farrier comes out he ask me why in the world I wanted donkeys! I love my donkeys! He is a great farrier  though and we pay a little extra for him to drive out from the next town over because no matter what he is kind to our animals...the local guy we used just once,he will never be back, was mean to our animals!

Just for the fun of it I thought I would through in a picture of Clyde doing his impression of a glowing eyed zombie donkey!


He's pretty good at it don't ya think!!!

There's a Jail Museum in Huntsville? Er.... which Huntsville would that be, I'm sure there are more than one!

Why is it that animals don't like you to mess with your feet?

Aw, Bye, Kids! I bet the place feels empty.

Good scary pic of Clyde!

What cute expressions those little goats have. I wish I could figure out what to do with one here. :) I told my husband I wanted a goat and a hedgehog.....just because they are both so cute.

Glad to hear you had a good time. We just had the farrier out to do horse. He was not so good though. Hope you have a great week.

OMG, funny how Bonnie reacts to the farrier. They are such smart animals and come up with the most incredible moves to get out of a situation. The farrier at the DSC is incredible, and we are so lucky to have him, he is so patient and just loves his job and the animals. That makes things so much easier.

I got scared with the headline. I thought you were getting rid of ALL of your goats!

Whew.

Taking a break from dealing with 28 MORE pounds of cherries. Pie is out of the oven and chunky syrup is in the canner.

Jelly tomorrow.

Save me from myself please.

Pricilla,
I could never be without goats I don't think,lol!

Canning is as addictive as goats! Wow! So many cherries,lucky you!

That Clyde is enough to make me get a donkey, almost :O).

I am glad your goaties got good homes! You had a big selling week.

Clyde definitely needs to try out for a Stephen King movie! ....Ahhhh, I think he's beautiful!

You have made some changes around your place and keeping busy...but then, that's good old farm life, right? LOL
