Billy Goat

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Billy Goat is the handsome dude gracing my wall. He's the sweetest thing and loves attention. Recently he's had a runny nose and congestion. The vet gave us two types of medicine to give him for 7 days. That's 2 shots a day.

So Robert and I go out to the pasture and he sees me coming with his halter. He meets me halfway so I can put on his halter. Then he practically drags me to the barn, where we give him his shots. If we don't do it in the privacy of the barn, little Milly Goat and our two Great Pyrenees Dogs try to hog all the attention.

I scratch Billy's neck while he gets the injections and then keep on giving him some more attention before I let him back out in the pasture. He's just such a sweetie that I can't help smiling any time I'm around him. But then all our pets are pretty special and I'm thankful I have them in my life.

    The only animal I have is a cat, but I love them all. Life, in all its forms, is absolutely amazing.

Our companion animals give so much pleasure, I took one of my chickens to the vet once emoticon

    I always wanted a goat but never had the room or the time to have one. Thanks for sharing.
