Hi friends!! It's your favorite day of the week #tuckertuesday and boy do I have stories for you!
First off I know mama told you we got more goats but she didn't tell you the bestest parts. They wouldn't let me outside to help so I had to yell instructions out the window so I did that but I don't think they listened much because daddy got the first lady goat out of the truck and she (mama says her name is Penelope but she calls her Nellie-B) walked right up the hill with one of my leashes and at first I thought maybe she was really a puppy but then she ate a whole bunch of grass and I only eat a little grass so NOPE she's a goat! Daddy walked with her to the gate and mama got the next goat out of the truck.
Callie (that's her with the messy freckled face) didn't want to pretend to be a dog so she kicked and jumped and mama musta thought she might hurt herself so she let her go but that didn't go so good because next thing I knew she was running down the hill across the yard and kicking and jumping the whole way with mama running hot on her heels! I yelled for them to let me out because I run zoomy fast and I could catch her no problem I just knew it but mama kept running like maybe she didn't hear me. She said she ran all the way down to the shooty range, around daddy's wood shop, down the creek bank and then back up the big driveway where daddy jumped out from behind the shed and BAM wrangled her (Callie, not mama) right down just like a rodeo cowboy. I didn't even know he could do that!!
Last weekend they got the doors all on the new barn which is good because WHEW if they run that fast they'll need big doors for these goats!!
Then yesterday, my daddy the Professional Goat Wrangler rode the 4 wheeler right up the big hill behind the house to cut down a tree and he didn't come back for a really long time. Then when mama got home from the store they got grandpa's tractor and went back up the hill because apparently the really big hill behind the house has a hole on it and daddy flipped that 4 wheeler right over!! Mama said it was a good thing he was ok and a gooder thing the 4 wheeler was ok so she didn't have to kill him which didn't make a lot of sense why she would do that when she was glad he was ok but prolly it's a growd up thing and I wouldn't unnerstand.
So it's been a really busy week, even Colt needed a quiet nap on the deck. He and Ruger brought mama a bunch of mice and moles and daddy said they even got a chipmunk and mama says that's what we're paying them for!
Ok I gotta go to bed. Daddy has a new job that he really really likes but WOW does he have to get up early for it. He goes to bed almost before the chickens now!! Hope you have a good week, see you next time!
