Farm Animals in Austin

Real Estate Appraiser with Appraisal IQ (Real Estate Appraisal) in Austin Texas

We found something unexpected on the Austin Funky Chicken Coop Tour this past weekend.

For those of you who missed it - there were 20 homes with backyard coops on for this year, the second year of the tour, spread out all the way from 183 and Anderson Lane all the way down to South Austin.

We had friends on the tour and they recorded 650 visitors in 6 hours - they were flat out exhausted by the time we saw them, and they looked like it was time to kick back and put their feet up.

The unexpected thing we found was actually two things - a pair of goats in a backyard just north of 51st (North of the Mueller Redevelopment area).

Only one would pose, so here she is for your viewing pleasure.

Oh, and we noted that a visitor to our blog this past week was looking to see if chickens were permitted in Steiner Ranch!

Oh, and here's a short video of Austin's Coolest Goat!

That's a happy looking goat. Only in Texas. I meant it's just a happy goat. Who lives in Austin.

I think this new urban chicken coop thing is cool.....then add to it a fun-looking goat and it becomes fun.

Wait - is the picture there to make the goat feel at home?  I mean, the blanket was a very nice touch, but the picture? :)

LOL  I too am laughing at the blanket and the hanging picture in the coop.  That's one styling chicken coop/goat house.  :)

We thought this was hysterical - the other side of the shelter had another painting and a chandelier!
