A blog from Lucky Nickel!

Hi!  Hi hi hi!  It's meeeeeeee!  Lucky Nickel!
You've missed me...I know...the human is very busy.  She hasn't had a lot of time for blogging lately.  She said I could do it today.  Wasn't that nice of her?

Look how big I am now!  This is a picture of me with the human's foot.  She wears these really weird shoes.  I don't know why she even wears shoes.  It is much better to just be barehooved.  Well, barefooted for her.  She says these shoes are the best for being as close to barefoot as possible without stepping in chicken poop in the yard.  I never step in chicken poop because I am a dainty goat.  She has such big feet she would be bound to step in it.  Poor human.
Look also at my furriness.  The human says I am getting little curlicues from my Dad.  His name is Val and I don't think he knows who I am.  But anyway, she says she might shear me sometime because I am a pygora.  I know that is actually a kind of snake - I heard scary stories about it once from a crow that was visiting the yard.  It lives in the jungle and strangles goats.  Anyway, I don't know why the human thinks I am a snake and I don't want to insult her by telling her that I am a goat because she says she is in school and work and her brain is full right now.
See my horns too?  They are perfectly symmetrical and lovely.  I am indeed an elegant goat.  Not a py-whatsit who strangles things.
But there is a problem that I have to tell you about.  The other goats ALSO think I am a pycobra...pyth...py...well that thing.  Let me tell you about them.  Here I am approaching their pen...
This is Coffee with her daughters, Misky and Larke.  They are very high strung, like their mother.  They think everything is to be avoided.  Except food.
This is Horton with his mother Lotus, and I think Horton is really cute.  He's got big horns and a lovely furry coat and he looks so lovely that I would like to be friends with him.
The problem is, they are not very fond of me.  The human put me in the pen yesterday to try to get me used to them.  They all try to go after me with their horns.  This is who I know that they think I am a scary creature like py...thing...probably because the human said so.

Last evening, a very bad thing happened.  Here you can see it coming.
There was a dreadful storm.  In fact, there were torpedoes not far from here.  That's when a big wind comes out of the sky like a tunnel and takes you up into the clouds.  The human said there was a torpedo warning and another torpedo on the ground in another town.  The rain was awful.  It was raining humans and cows.  (that's a goat expression you know - it means really hard rain.)  So I tried to go in the shelter with the other goats, but because they think I am a pygobra...well they would not let me in.  The human came out to put the chickens away in a break in the storm and she saw me in the corner of the pasture and I was like a wet rag because they won't let me in and I was crying and wet all through.  It was good that it was warm, but you need to know that we goats hate rain and we hate to be wet and I was stuck there and the thunder was scary and the lightning was everywhere and I thought I would get sucked up by a torpedo.  So when the human came out I screamed at her with all my goat lung power and she came rushing over and made nice soft noises to me and I suddenly felt a LOT better.  She rushed into the barn with me and held me a while and said she was sorry that I was stuck out there.  I love the human.  She is very nice to me, not like those other stupid goats.  Anyway, she says she has to "sort something out" for me.

So that's all from me, because I have to go scratch my itches now.  All that rain made me itchy...

Ha ha ha, I loved this post! Lucky Nickel is such a pert little goat! Torpedoes, oh my! Yes, they are scary, little Nickel, and I would have been crying too, stuck outside with them.

You are indeed adorable with your non-snake curlicues and I think maybe the other goats are jealous of your good looks and quick mind. Why don't you just ask your human if you can move back in with her? You know she wants to let you...

Hi Lucky Nickel! You are such a pretty young goat! I think you can just tell the other goats that a pygora is a special, lovely type of goat! I'd really like to meet your daddy and have a little Boergora goat! I'd be terribly afraid if we had torpedoes here!! We had some icy bullets that rained down from the sky a few days ago but we all ran in to the barn! I'm sorry the other goats won't let you in! Naughty! Don't worry! I think your Claire will help you out. Goat kisses to youuu!

Some of us think Pygoras are just perfect, and you obviously are! You have lovely fiber, and those other goats are just jealous...

"Torpedos". Never been in one, never want to, what EVER you call them...

Glad you made it through the storms safely. We were surrounded here, but not even much rain or wind. We have lots of nooks and crannies here for little goats to take shelter from rain and big cranky goats. It's certainly no fun to be left out in the rain. Maybe your human can talk to those other goats.

It sounds like you had a very scary day. I hope tomorrow goes better for you Lucky Nickel!

Great story. At some point the other goats will see the error of their ways and let you join them. Don't they know that when the human brings you treats that they will get some too?

Lucky Nickel, you are very talented as well as beautiful!! What a great but scary story. Maybe if you can get Miss Claire to take you to school with her, you can learn some things to make the other goats behave!!

I hope the other goats come around - they don't know what they are missing !....Torpedos sound scary !!!

Texan said...

Oh yes goats can be very clickish like that. They are very slow to warm up to a new goat...I am sorry they forced you out in the rain!

I am sure your human will figure something out for you :O)
