    My goodness! How big is that goat?

    My little Saanen doeling (9 weeks old yesterday) likes to dance too - well, she likes to jump on me, so I grab her hooves and dance with her. :p

    I have a doeling that does that too! Then I start dancing with her and she doesn't want to dance... then she jumps up on me again. *sigh* :D

    Ah. I'm 5'7" and my Alpine yearling is pretty close to that when she stands up. I hate to think how big my Saanen would be if she did that! She's a big girl too.

    Lijj, I tried the knee in the chest routine, like you would to dissuade a dog from jumping up - doeling thought that was great fun, and kept coming back for more. Now, I blow raspberries at her, and she backs off and looks at me with great big eyes LOL.

    She is a big girl and pretty, too. Saada has some very big does in their herd. I enjoyed seeing the photos of your goats. My friend has a yearling Saanen who stands over 6 feet when on her hind legs.

    OK - Every time I see the title of this thread again I have to open it it and look at that dancing goat.

    Then I start hearing "The Chicken Dance" music in my head.

    Doo doo dee dee dee

    Doo doo dee dee dee

    Doo dee dee dee -Doo doo doo doo


    Yikes. Too much coffee. I am now picturing all of those goats under the tree in Ozarks Jewel's photo standing up and dancing.


    I really should go do some housework.

    Your photo reminds me of an old boy I used to know some years back. He was a "towny" that suddenly moved to a neighboring farm and had the strangest habit of "dancing" with one of his new born quarter horses. We'd go by in the old '37 Ford pick-up, and there he'd be in the front field, the little colts' legs draped over his shoulders doing his version of the Kentucky Waltz, having a high ho merry time.

    One morning, about a year later, we saw him at the mill and he was wearing a cast plum across his chest and down one arm!

    I, being a somewhat smart-ass as a young man, just had to ask him what happened. Apparently the 700 pound colt ran up to him at feeding time one morning and decided to dance one last dance... breaking the old boys collar bone and left arm!

    He said, "Why didn't you tell me what a foolish thing I was doing when you'd go by the farm?"

    Well sir, gandpa told me you'd see the err of your ways soon enough and to mind my own business!
