    So, this is the goat that I told you about that thinks she is a human "kid". She jumps into the middle of basketball games and dances with my daughter. She's hilarious. This was not a onetime thing either - we can tell our daughter, Elisabeth, "dance with Clementine" and she will. The goat responds every time. She also jumps the fence whenever the boys play bball and runs around butting the ball and standing on her hind legs. She is a NUT!

    Giggle. When we were kids my sister and I had a wether who used to climb up in the porch swing to swing. I have pitcures of him riding "piggy back" on my sister's back, and riding the four wheeler with her! grin. Goats can be really weird....for livestock. giggle.

    That's is so great:clap:

    I once had a couple of Pygmy goats that would start dancing like that if they thought I had any animal crackers!

    They are very funny. We went out to walk my Mother in law to her red convertible car and one of our somber, older nannies was IN the car as if she belonged there. Fortunately - she didn't pee.

    Yes, my goat is very cute but my two legged kids are cuter ;-) That is my daughter, Elisabeth and 3 of my 4 boys. We had four sons, adopted Elisabeth (obviously) and are having one big surprise baby this October. Not what I thought I'd be doing at 41 but a blessing nonetheless. We'll die of shock if it is a girl!! Elis insists that it has to be. I had to explain to her that, if this is a girl, she will be white ;-) She thought we just have brown girls. lol

    Still waiting for our two does to birth!! Driving me nuts.

    You have got to get a video camera and send it to those programs like on "animal channel stars or funniest videos.

    That is so cute!

    There are more than just white folks on here but the great thing about the internet is it is truly color blind.
    We don't need to know what color their skin is to like them on here and before someone thinks this is a scolding... it is not! Just an observation. :)

    We are all truly equal on here. Aint it great? :)

    Aww, great pictures! I have a goat like that too - Sara was bottle-raised and she loves to get into the action. I take her for walks down our long driveway to get the mail. :p

    How old is Elisabeth? She's beautiful. I can't really see your boys in the other picture.

    I'm happy to see a face of color too. I'm black and don't think there are too many of us here. You really should send in a video of your goat doing her tricks. I'll bet you would win the money. LOL

    Looks like Elisabeth stole the show here ;-) I don't mind - she is a beautiful little girl. She just turned 5 but we've had her since she was 10 days old! Its amazing how many people pay 20k + to adopt out of the country when we have so many that need homes in our own. In the South, black or biracial babies aren't easy to place. I cannot imagine why. We applied, said we didn't care what color baby we got and had Elisabeth in a few short months.We were thinking about adopting another minority girl and my wife found out she's pregnant - wow! So, we're having number six biologically. Never thought I'd have quite this many but they've been great. I'm not closed to possibly adopting one more after this but then that is totally IT!!! I need a t-shirt that says "No, I'm not Mormon or Catholic, yes they're all from one marriage, yes, she's adopted". Would shortcut most conversations I have with strangers. :)

    Our boys are 16, 14, 11.5, and 7. We have them all across the board.

    I'm glad to hear there's some diversity on this board!! I also think its a blessing that it doesn't matter to anyone. We are sooo used to Elisabeth's gorgeous brown skin that I truly don't notice people's races when I meet them. Our children will grow up that way and I think its an awesome blessing. They will say "No, Dad, I mean the boy with the blue shirt, two rows down..." when they're indicating the only black kid on the team and it would be easier to say "Dad, I mean the one black kid". cute.

    I'll tell ya though - this girl does NOT like her Daddy to do her hair. I am hopeless with little white girl hair let alone hers! I can do barely symetrical poof balls - that is all!

    Congrats Ksal - have lots of beige babies :)

    I love that you have a big family! Even with four we get the "don't you know how that happens" question. UGH! Why do people think that is am ok question to ask?

    Elisabeth is beautiful and I'm sure your new little vanilla baby will be too! Makes me want to adopt a couple myself.

    I guess you dont want to hear this but that can become dangerous I would put a stop to it.

    Of course, I would want to hear about anything that would put my children in danger. I have thought about that because the way Clementine dances can certainly look like the prelude to a head butt! She has never, however, butted anyone and she never gets close to doing so with Elisabeth. If she ever shows any sign of aggression with this, I would put an immediate stop. Also, its not something we do very often - only once in a great while. She is a yearling and probably won't remain this playful for long anyway. I think she's especially playful right now because our other two goats are due anyday and not any fun to be with.

    Thank you for the warning. I would rather you be frank with me with such matters - I appreciate it!

    What a gorgeous little girl. And so lucky - everyone should be so lucky as to grow up with dancing goats! :dance: I clearly had a deprived childhood.

    Children are a joy, and your little girl seems to have captivated us all. The goat too! LOL. My neighbor bought our little wether, age 8 weeks. He plays with their 2 yr old grandson in the fenced yard, and slides down his little plastic slide! So far, tho, they don't dance. You have to get some good video and send it to Americans Funniest Videos. We'll all say, HEY, WE KNOW THEM!!
