Fences and Gates and Goats


Make sure to get the right side of my face, okay?

This little guy was so rambunctious. While I was trying to get his photo, he was running helter skelter around the barnyard, then suddenly stopped and hopped onto the wagon. I think he wanted to pose for the shot. Just look at that evil eye, and all because I suggested he needed a bath?


Somebody must be home.
And this one doesn't read, 'No Trespassing.'


Gate Sampler
I have a suspicion that these came from different farm auctions.

Wonderful series! I love the goat,I had to laugh at the bath story! My dog does not like baths either. The Amish buggy is a great shot! Have a happy day!

That goat just wants you to play with him! I love goats (used to have them) and all their funny antics. Great shots of the gates and the Amish buggy. Wendy x

Love the Amish buggy!!! I remember one time we came upon one in rural Missouri in our travels, with traffic backed up, creeping along...and when we finally saw what the delay in zipping through the countryside, it was an AWESOME sight to see.

The goat is such a darling...right side, wrong side...any side, darling!!!

Oh yes they do like maybe they're from an auction. I like the variety of them. Hilarious about your goat and the last photo of the buggy is wonderful. I sure love the country life! Have a great day!

Ruth Kelly said...

I never get tired of seeing those buggies since none exist in this part of the country. I hope the goat was friendly.

Valerie said...

Love your goat picture. The story made me laugh. =) Sounds like our puppy Tia when her bath time rolls around. Blessings and Sunshine, Valerie

I would never dream of giving one of my goats a bath. Maybe you deserved the evil eye.

My sister has 2 goats,and they never behave. :-)

I love the photo with the bluebird house.

Eileen said...

Love the goat, he looks a cheeky one!

Vee said...

That's exactly what that goat is saying! Does he have a name? It should be dignified...no Billy Goat or anything.

Blackberry Lane said...

Great goat shot!! At least he didn't try to butt you!! I hope to see some Amish next week when I visit my cousin in Lancaster!! Can't wait!

Midwest to Midlands said...

I did not realise there are Amish in Wisconsin, at least I don't remember. The assembly of gates and the goat gave me a laugh.

Trace4J said...

He is wonderful even with a evil eye!
I cant wait to own my very own goat :)
Love your photos.

we got to interact with the Amish recently while in Ohio. there was a cute little boy that waved & waved at me ... precious overalls. others had hats that were fishing.

hope you are well. have a great fun weekend. ( :

Debbie said...

mis-matched fences look awesome!! and what an adorable goat!!

Anita Johnson said...

I think goats are hilarious!

Jean | Delightful Repast said...

Love the gate assortment! The goat reminds me of the time my parents had a 13-year-old grandson living with them for a year and someone sold my mother a pygmy (not sure of the spelling) goat she thought would be a nice pet for the boy. As the goat grew larger and larger, my father was fond of saying to my mother "That guy sure saw you coming!"

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Quite an awesome collection of photos. I love that goat and also that Amish buggy :-)

Denise said...

Nice pictures.

Eva Ason said...

Beautiful pictures and I love the one of the goat.

Kristin_Texas said...

I want a goat. My mother and I are always wishing we had a fainting goat in particular. I think they're so cute. (What we really need though is a donkey, for keeping the snakes away!)
