Because everyone should start their weekend with pictures of goats

Hope your weekend is getting off to a great start! We went from wearing shorts and flip flops yesterday to huddling around fires for warmth today because here in Texas anything below 60 requires 3 layers of clothing and lots of complaining. Not to worry, it’ll be back up to 80 by Wednesday, and we’ll go back to complaining that the weather isn’t “fall” enough.

Another requirement of fall is to visit the (not so) local (hour away) pumpkin patch, only it’s not so much of a patch as it is a posse of pumpkins piled onto hay bales or packed into wooden crates because that’s isn’t that how they grow? No? Oh.

But how do I choose? They’re all so different.

There may have been some corn mazes, some scarecrows, some other fallish stuff, but then GOATS! Because why not?

 Run out of feed? Just start pulling up grass. (Don’t tell the farmer.)

All this goat feeding is hard work, yo.

Man, I’m so hungry I could eat a small child. Twins if you got ’em. (Don’t tempt me, dude.)

You’re right, it is rather soft and velvety.

I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy.

Have a great weekend, although I know how hard it’ll be to top a bunch of photos of goats, right?

  1. That is so cute! We went to the Owens Farm last year and haven’t had a chance to go yet this year. I’m hoping to take Cheyenne on Tuesday. They have goats to feed, pumpkins to choose from, a hayride (which Cheyenne loved!) and Cheyenne had a blast last year, so I can’t wait to take her again this year!!

  2. LA sorry but I gotta call you out on the goat going to heavan! According to the band Cake ! Sheep go to Heaven Goats go to Hell!
    I’m not feeling alright today,
    I’m not feeling that great,
    I’m not catching on fire today,
    Love has started to fade,

    I’m not going to smile today,
    I’m not gonna laugh,
    You’re out living it up today,
    I’ve got dues to pay,

    When the grave digger puts on the foreceps,
    The stonemason does all the work,
    The barber can give you a haircut,
    The carpenter can take you out to lunch,

    Now, I just want to play on my panpipes,
    I just want to drink me some wine,
    As soon as you’re born, you start dying,
    So you might as well have a good time,

    Sheep go to Heaven,
    Goats go to Hell,
    Sheep go to Heaven,
    Goats go to Hell,

    I don’t wanna go to Sunset Strip,
    I don’t wanna feel the emptyness,
    Old marquees with stupid band names,
    I don’t wanna go to Sunset Strip,

    I don’t wanna go to Sunset Strip,
    I don’t wanna feel the emptyness,
    Old marquees with stupid band names,
