Well, earlier this morning Mom had gone to pick up the ladies and the rest of us were doing the last finishing touches on our house to get it ready for our Bible study, then Leo showed up. Dad went outside to see what he wanted and Leo came out of his truck and said "come here" to an animal or something that was inside his truck; Dad thought he was calling his dog Lulu but then a girl kid goat hopped out. Dad was surprised and Leo started telling Dad about how he found it; Leo had found it on the side of the road. Dad didn't realize it, but Leo was giving it to us. So, now we have a goat.
Since my birthday is Thursday it is almost like my early birthday gift. I'm so excited! Mom kept saying," What in the world are we going to do with a goat."and I would answer," Keep it."
Since it is still a baby we gave it a bottle and some milk and she just jumped right at it. She drank it up so fast.
Here is Silas, Callie and Momma feeding it a little later on. Silas is a little scared of it but Callie just goes right up to it. We think we will name it Kiddie, since it is a girl kid goat. Kiddie tried to jump on Callie and Callie told Momma that Kiddie hurt her tummy.
Since Kiddie is so tame she might belong to someone else so when the news paper comes out we will see if somebody is looking for a goat. So, for now we shall enjoy our goat.
