My Wife Really Got My Goat ... He's Home

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Affiliates

I recently posted about my wife calling me when I was with a customer to ask if she could rebuster eating a branchscue a goat.  Caught as I was in a noncompromising position, I acquiesced.  He was a standard - we have pygmy goats.  Well, he has been delivered and he is very tall - about as tall as our miniature donkeys.

He looks like a Holstbuster's earsein cow with spotted ears.  Very gentle and alert.  We're working on a name - down to "Buster" or "Gomer".    This morning Lisa found him sleeping at the door to the goat house with the donkeys on the other side of the fence by him in their pasture.  Looks like I need to make a larger door to the goat house!

We're not sure if he will stay in the goat pen, or if we'll put him out with the donkeys and horses.  Will try that this weekend and see what happens.  I'm confident that we'll have many years of enjoyment with him ... and vice versa.  I'm posting pics I took last night - you can see he's already checking out how to get in the house! buster looking in the house

I love the picture of Buster trying to get into the house! Our dogs are trying to understand what the pygmy goats are, and they'll get it eventually. One of them rushed one of the goats and got rammed so they are only yappy from afar...and of course we have ours separated with the pen right now. Buster is SO handsome! Just love him too!

Jim - Looks like fun , I would love to give that lifestyle a try. Just don't know if the family could handle it !! I like "Buster" better , he seems to intelligent to be a "Gomer"

He's cute if you can call a goat cute. For some reason he just looks like a Gomer to me.

I felt sorry for him because he knows he's a goat but he couldn't fit into the goat house door!

I love to hear that real estate agents spend time doing stuff other than real estate!  Have fun with your new goat!

It looks like you got your own goat.  Pretty baaaaaad.  At least you have a green lawn mower.

Everyone - looks like Buster is going to be his name.  Next decision - enlarge the door to the goat house or let him live with the donkeys.  Life can certainly present its challenges.
