Suspended Until Further Notice

Having three blogs is just to much for me. I will be pausing In a Goat's Shoes and In Tayet's Shoes for a while until I am less busy, or I can figure out a way to do all three again. Into the Land of Photography will be converted into a semblance of all three, with posts on goats, my life and my photography. The other two blogs will not be deleted, so you'll be able to read old posts if you like.

I'm looking forward to designing my 'new' blog and I hope all of you will follow my there if you don't already,

Panda Cat

 So a new cat has been coming around on the farm and we named him Johnny the Red Panda Cat, Johnny or Panda for short. he's very friendly and we are probably his secondary home or someone dumped him out by us, because for some reason people who don't need their cats think that farms are ALWAYS in need of another cat. Not us, that's for sure!

But he's soo nice and cuddly, that we just can't help ourselves! He won't be a indoor kitty, but if he sticks around he might become a pet =)

Baby goats have boarded on the Just Kidding Express. The expected arrival date is January 30th, unless there is some unforeseen mishap. 

Good luck, Uhura!

Bye Bye, Baby, Bye Bye..

Cassie and Vinnie sold this morning. They are going to a nice farm to be pets and milk goats. They are nice children there who love them a lot! I put together a few collages of them growing up here on the farm.

E and T are MIA!

Jenny came up with a toughy this week! All participants have to write a cohesive sentence without the letters 'E' or 'T'. Good golly, Miss Molly... I'll try my best!

I love long, lazy summer days.

It's the truth. Nothing fits the bill better than lying in the sun reading a book. Or, attempting to read a book while a naughty little goat tries to eat it.

Fair Pictures and Random Thoughts


And alas, this years fair has come to a close. A cow ate my Grand Champion rosette, but what's a fair without a ribbon eating cow?

Yesterday was my birthday, I turned 14.

Cassie and Vinnie are up for sale, so if you know anyone in WI or surrounding states that are in need of adorable, super tame goaties, let me know!

Super cool crested duck!

We caught two White Pekin ducks at this years Chicken Chase. Tommi is very happy not to be alone any more

Krazy Kool Results!

Gold got Grand Champion and I got Champion Show Person of the intermediate class. I got two rosettes, two blue ribbons a plaque and a hoody.

Vinnie: My nine year old sister showed Vinnie and got Best Show Person of the junior class. She got got two blue ribbons, a rosette and a hoody.

Willow: Willow was the second biggest goat there (only Gold was bigger than her!). My sixteen year old brother showed her and got Reserve Grand Champion! He only showed her in the pet class as opposed to my sister and I who showed in both the pet and showmanship class. He got a blue ribbon, a rosette and a plaque.

In other things, I got 6 blue ribbons and 2 red ribbons in photography. My little sister got a red ribbon for a collage she made and a red ribbon for a drawing of a tree. My brother got a blue ribbon for his chocolate chip cookies and a red ribbon for his peanut butter cookies.

Next year, I'm going to raise three meat rabbits and enter them in the fair. And if I get meat rabbits, why not get a pet rabbit and enter that too? (if I can convince my dad that I should get another pet rabbit.) I'm also going to (maybe) show a chicken or two.

This years fair is turning out great! You won't believe what happens when we enter Penny in the Dress-a-Critter contest... and that's all I'm going to say about that subject for now... DUN DUN DUN!

FOTM--Penny in August

I've been saying since Penny was less then a month old that I'm bringing her to the fair. And yet, Gold is at the fair again instead. I decided not to bring Penny because she is not as mature as Gold and less trained. I do believe Gold can win Grand Champion this year as the other goats there are Vinnie, Willow and three 2-3 month old kids. Next year she'll be a year and five months instead of just five months and have more training under her hooves.

For now, let's just enjoy Penny eat a slice of watermelon.





The goat show is tomorrow, so watch out for lots of pictures, coming soon to your computer screen!

Ronnie and ???

 Meet our new kitten, Ronnie! She's just the cutest little thing. We got her from the same farm as the new buck for free.
This is the new boy.He doesn't have a name yet, but I am considering 'Scooter'. He's 8 weeks old, and his lungs are about the size of my head. I know this because he screams loud enough to wake the dead. Hopefully he'll grow out of it as he adjusts to his new life! I'm so thankful that I'll be able to breed Gold and Uhura this fall and some of the younger girls in March or April.

I Love Photo Editing

All I did was zoom in on the goats more and clone out all the laundry. And of course added the text box.

Saturday Centus--It's an Amusing Little Whine

Everyone burst out laughing. Leo said "Another story, Jade! Your life is too funny!" Jade smiled. "Well, every morning when Minnie comes downstairs she asks 'Mommy, is it my birthday?' It's an annoying little whine, but when she grows up we'll always talk about how cute she was, asking about her birthday." Everyone at the table Awww-ed. It was very Awww-worthy. Jade smiled again, "That isn't all. When it's actually her birthday, I'm getting her a shirt that says 'Is it my Birthday?' so she doesn't have to ask anymore!" Minnie popped out from behind the door, "I heard that!"

New Buck

So... it is official! I am getting a cute little pygmy buck off of Craigslist! He's eight weeks old, all white with black and rusty colored markings on his face. I don't have a picture I can use yet, but we are getting him on Thursday, so you'll get to see him then! Feel free to suggest any names for him.

Penny is getting so grown up. She's gone from a tiny, fragile, newborn baby. 
Penny, not even two hours old.
To a beautiful, sophisticated young goat.
Penny at almost 4 months.
She's gone from eating only her mother's milk, 
to eating grass almost exclusively. But she still loves getting her late night snacks from her mother, I'm sure.


This is my favorite picture of Penny and I'm entering it in the fair. I hope it gets something good!

Linking to First of the Month with Jan. I'm documenting my baby goat Penny's growth on the first of every month.
