He Wants To Be A Model

Otis is looking for a new home.  We had planned to get pygmy does at one point, so at the time getting him seemed like a good idea.  Unfortunately things fell through concerning the does so we really don't have a reason to keep him other than as a pet.  

If any of you reading this has buck goats, they will know why they don't always make good pets.  When they are in Rut, they can get a little aggressive, not to mention smelly.  Also, when he can smell that the does we do have are in heat, it is stressful for him.  

So you can see  why it would be better to find him a home where he can be more useful.  Although I'm not sure he's planning to stay with farm life.  He seems to want a modeling job.  He's working on his portfolio now.  Here are his current head shots:

All of us here at Bramble Valley Homestead (our now official farm name) hope that you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving (if you are in the US) if you choose to celebrate it.

I can hardly believe it's been nearly three months since I last posted.  Life has been busy this fall and sometimes things fall by the wayside.  Somehow it seems it is always those things I enjoy the most that get pushed aside when I get busy.  I have missed posting and hope to be doing it on a semi-regular basis at the least from now on.

Being that it is November and a Monday I thought it was the perfect time to get back into it with a Gratitude post.  As hectic and stressful as the last few months have been, I think I need it.

Today I am grateful for:
1) Knowing where my food comes from.
2) Good friends I know I can always count on.
3) The hugs of my children that somehow make the worst day seem worth while.

What are you grateful for today?
