Trying to Follow Me Home!
It was the cutest thing I'd seen in a long time. I had just been to a 'vintage' school house nearby (actually, the old country school in which I had attended 1st and 2nd grade). I pulled off the side of the road and took a few photos of the school. Then I drove ahead and pulled into the driveway of the schoolhouse, so that I could turn around. As I nosed into the drive, two little black goats came running from behind a nearby barn. Before I could move, they were right against the passenger side of the car. I was wishing I had electric windows, for I could have gotten a closeup shot of those cute little goats.
Trying to leave was nearly impossible, for I didn't want to run over them, and they kept crowding the car. I carefully and slowly backed out of the drive onto the road. The goats followed. I got safely clear of them and accelerated because I wanted to get out of there so the goats wouldn't get hurt or get onto the road.
I looked in my rear view mirror and the goats were running down the road after me! I stepped on the brakes and got out of the car just a second to get the photo you see above. Then I quickly got into the car again and sped off. Not that I wouldn't want those cute little goats to be at my house, but I really didn't want them out on the road where they could get hurt. I was hoping they would give up and go back home.
'Lady, come baaaaaaaaaack!!!!!!!'
I have no idea why they were loose, unless they were just free grazing pets. Fortunately, that road is pretty remote with virtually no traffic. I'm hoping the little goats wandered back to their yard once they lost sight of the car.
I was telling a friend about this incident and it reminded her of 'Mary Had a Little Lamb,' except that I'm not Mary and they were following me away from school, not to school. :-)
