Goats Make Good Drums

 Every evening me and The Boy try to spend time in the goat pen before it is time to  give the goaties their supper and put them to bed. It is always great entertainment! Goats have BIG personalities and you never know what will go on out in their pen.When we first go out it is chaos! Everyone comes running in case of treats because well, often there are treats! Then they kind of settle down and take their turns getting attention. One of the things that happens on  occasion is drumming. Tonight it was Nibbles who wanted to be musical....ummm..maybe I should say Nibbles wanted to be the musical instrument!
Nibbles was a bottle baby and is very close to The Boy.When she was a baby she lived in the house and slept in a clothes hamper next to The Boys bed.  She wants to be close as possible to him all the time. She really tries to sit in his lap still but she is just too big! As she and The Boy sat together tonight he was patting on her like he was playing a goat drum!
 You can see she was loving it...just sitting there chewing cud and enjoying all the patting!
  Maybe I can take them to the fair to perform and people can put change in a can for them,lol! It could help with the goat feed fund!
 Nibbles says,"Hey,I did not tell ya you could stop..."
  Back to drumming...
  "What was the Nibbles,...more drumming!?!?!"
... pat- pat- patta- pat- pat....my arms are getting tired.....
 I am not sure who is actually in charge here,The Boy or Nibbles!
A boy and his goat..life is good!

Haha.
We had a cat who liked to be drummed on. Animals are funny creatures. :)

That is so sweet! It's good to see how trusting and relaxed Nibbles is with her human. It must be good therapy for The Boy, too!

A boy and his goat.

You're gonna have to call your next one 'Bongo'. (the next goat, not boy lol.)

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Well, the goats are in charge -- that's an easy one!

Such a cute post. How attached we become to our farm babies. :)

The kid is growing up! Around here, I use my horns to tap on the human sometimes. It does look like Nibbles is really enjoying that. I might have to talk to my human about trying this.

Gode billeder.
Gede er morsomme dyr. Vi har for mange år siden haft Bjerggeder til megen fornøjelse.
Tak for kigget.

Adorable! If they could learn to play "Wipe Out", they could go on the road! The money cup isn't such a bad idea either! LOL

Lin said...

In the city, there are kids who sit on corners drumming on those white buckets. I think he could make a FORTUNE drumming on his goat!! :) That is quite the duo you've got there!

Kelly said...

I am always amazed at what goats find enjoyable. They always make me smile. I love the horns too. A whole musical section with a goat. LOL

Loved this! Did you know this is a type of therapy that both humans and animals benefit from. I can't think of the name but can tell you that Sophie our dog loves it too! I have been giving her these 'pats' up and down her spine since she was a puppy. She gets the same expression on her face as Nibbles!
