True

TRUE 
love
lives!




Friday morning I received an email from my friend, Mike, down in Virginia.  Their goat, Phoebe had her kids...triplets...one female and two males...all ear-less like their Dad!!!  This was her first pregnancy and she is just a darling pet.  

Remembering the first time I went to the house and how she approached me as I parked my car in the driveway, always brings a smile to my face.  Coming up to greet me, she began to bleat and walked at my side all the way to the back door, letting Mike know I was on my way.  She loves to push against
the backs of your legs so that you give her some what I call "lovin' rubbin'."

The love of a mother is always TRUE.

I will most likely never own a farm property where I can have goats, but I just love them to pieces!

Sandra said...

wish i could hug/pet them, so beautiful. I love goats as much as cows and dogs and horse and donkeys and mules.

I agree with Sandra, I know some goats too and their personalities cannot be beat in the animal kingdom. How interesting that all three took after daddy.

What a sweet post! Hubs' grandmother raised goats until the day she died...at the ripe old age of 103! She loved them!
