I live in a mid-Atlantic state on a country road. Only 3 miles from a major highway. 3 inches of snow and no one goes out! It took several hours before a truck came out to sand the road. Go the 3 miles and everything looks normal....if you make it the 3 miles.

It isn't unusual for people to stop by and want to pet and feed the deer and other animals. Today our cousins stopped and Holly was a little afraid of Willow. In a matter of seconds she was ready to "ride" Willow!
This is just because Chris wanted to see a picture of Charlie in his sweater. In case you are wondering, that is his gut hanging down. Fainting goats are used as meat goats. Charlie only stands about 18" high. Can't imagine getting much meat off of him. Too sweet to eat. He knows his name and comes when we calls him.

The daily ritual of feeding Willow by hand so the dogs won't eat her food. It takes about 10 minutes and it's always on the front porch because that is her favorite place to hang out. I am hoping that there isn't an accident because the road is just ahead. You should see the looks! Quite often we get people who turn around several times for another look. Sometimes they even take out their cell phones. Not like they all haven't seen a deer before....Maybe it's the blue collar that throws them off.

Charlie is about 6 months old and is a fainting goat. He faints easily! My daughter plays a certain song and dances for him and out he goes! 4 stiff legs. It only lasts for a couple of seconds but can happen again just as quickly.
