Goats go sledding

In most of the country, the first robin means spring is just around the corner. In Georgia, the first robin seems to mean that snow is imminent. Last year I saw the first robin and it snowed 5 inches that day! This year I saw the first robin and we got 4 inches the next day.

Anyway, this is the first year we had goats when it snowed. They took a real interest in sledding.

What is this thing? It looks fun.


We should give it a try.
Can I take a turn Logan?

Whee! This is great.




More snow pictures in the days to come. The farm is beautiful in the snow.

Goats are truly a bunch of goofballs! That second pic is hysterical....like they can't believe they were left out of the fun:)

We tapped trees today for maple syrup and are celebrating the beginning of our spring ... and you're sledding. That's funny!

Brenda said...

Goats are so much fun! It's hard to believe they stayed on the sled. I would have been rolling with laughter just watching them playing!

Linda said...

That looks like fun! Really cool with the goats too!

I just love how they all love Logan so much!! Your farm does look incredibly pretty in the snow. Of course, the sunshine helps! lol

This is hilarious! Wasn't the snow FANTASTIC?!? We had the most fun playing and fighting.

Chickens....not impressed!

A perfect hill! I am sure Logan and all the goats had a ball. It is amazing that one would actually sled with him. Good goat training, Logan.

Yeh, same here. I saw a Robin over a week ago and two days later we got over a foot of snow! And it's just now starting to melt. I've not seen the earth or grass for over 4 weeks! Enough already!

But your farm does look pretty with the snow. And how cute seeing Logan playing with the goats on the sled. :-)

To cute. Sweet Pea is just adorable. I showed the pic to my brother, and he disagreed. What is wrong with his brain. I don't know.

I want more snow. But, it was nice having a sunny day today. Looks like lots of fun!

Christy said...

Wendy, isn't that funny. You guys are the ones that are supposed to be in the middle of winter.

The goats are a trip. And yeah, the chickens did NOT like the snow.

I think every farm needs at least one goat. The are very curious and entertaining. Our goat thinks he is a dog and wants nothing to do with other goats.

Tee hee! That's too funny with the little goatie hitching a ride. I guess I don't know much about Georgia, cause I sure didn't know you got snow like that!
