But It Itches!

Of all the things to scratch your head on, you choose my LEG?

Of all the things to scratch your head on, you choose my LEG?

Sometimes I wonder what goes on inside their heads.  I’m out there in the barnyard and I look over and something odd is going on.  It happens all the time.

I caught this one a few days ago. Jesse seemed to think it would be a good idea to use Brandy as a scratching post.  It went on for what seemed like forever.  Brandy barely moved the entire time.  Sometimes Jessie comes round looking for a little closeness and Brandy head butts him halfway across the barnyard.  But being a scratching post?  No problem.

I may never understand them, but man, I love ’em.

Here’s the video version, for your viewing pleasure!

  3. I think goats are as much fun as pigs and dogs. They all seem to have the same happy go-lucky attitudes!
