goats, bobbing, and home

We went to a gift shop that had a few animals. This goat stuck his head thru the fence to greet me. I'm sure he was hoping for a snack. The sign next to his head read, "goats are too fat, please do not feed." So, all he got was a pet on the head.

He headed into the barn, where he climbed a flight of stairs, and made his way to his very own Juliet balcony. Who knew that goats liked to have rooms with a view? See him up there? He could see the lake, vineyards, and the entire farm from up there.

Oreo got to go bobbing for his orbee ball on our last day at the lake. Here are a couple photos of his wet head, and a video of his efforts.
We are back home now. Oreo has a trial tomorrow, but the weather is not looking too good.

Very cute! Glad to know you are back home safe and sound but sorry your vacation had to end! If you go to the trial tomorrow, good luck!

We are having gorgeous weather here today - 70s and partly sunny. Maybe you'll get lucky on the weather there tomorrow.

How does that goat not get his horns stuck in the fence. He is very cute. Diana

Oreo is a cute hoot bobbing for his orbie.

That goat can surely climb. Oreo looked so cute bobbing for his orbie. I believe if he were around the water very often he would soon be playing in it a lot. Glad that you got home safely. Helen

when we went to the red only winery, we discovered that the owners were neighbors and that the grapes get harvested in october. so not surprising that the grapes were less than delicious.

LOVE the cute pair of doggies at the top! And Oreo is adorable bobbing for his ball. Glad you're home safe! Good luck tomorrow! Do you think Oreo will be focused enough after the vacation to do a trial?
