Kidding Around/Camera Critters

AW! Isn't this kid cute? Who would possibly believe this little guy could ever eat a tin can? Not on your life! That's just a myth started by the other political party, you know the ones that want to be elected to the White House in Washington...or is it Parliament Hill in Ottawa? I forget.

But goats are curious and CAN get into trouble. Oh-oh, this kid here has advised me not to talk about scandals or I'll hear from its lawyer. ;-)

But I CAN tell you this goat lives at a nearby goat farm that sells goat milk, cheese and...shhh!...meat.

Did you know that more people around the world eat goat milk and cheese than that from cows? Apparently no one is allergic to goat products, which are easier for humans (including politicians) to digest.

I got a good chuckle out of your text then I read the comment from Rose and got another good chuckle.

Years ago I milked a goat daily for a neighbor’s granddaughter who could only drink goat’s milk as a baby. I found the goat easier to milk than a cow once we built a little stand for the goat to stand on.

My grandmother drank fresh goat milk due to an allergy to cow's milk. Wonder why nobody is allergic to goats?

He's a cute one! My mother used to raise milk goats. She met her third husband when she called in on a radio show asking if anyone knew how to make goat cheese. My step-father answered and they met and married but never did make the cheese. LOL!

What a beautiful photo! Well... about goat milk, cheese etc. ... in my country (Turkey) we have goat cheese as well as normal cheese made with cow milk. Personally, I like goat cheese very much especially on salads! :-)

Reader Wil said...

I didn't know that more people eat and drink goat products than that of cows! I like goat cheese very much and may be that's good for my two Aboriginal grandchildren, who get allergic reactions from cow milk. Beautiful photo and good information!

Dirk said...

I love goat (and sheep) milk and cheese too. Nice picture!

Aileni said...

Goats are very appealling - hard work but that muzzle feeding from your hand can melt you.

EG: What a great kidder you are, neat photo.

I've raised goats for years and they are wonderful critters. They have such good milk, and it makes awesome ice cream. I do hate to see tags in their ears though. The other goats tend to pull on them. I guess the big farms do this to keep track of everybody especially if they have lots of goats, and if many of them look alike.
