Maybe she got them mixed up with seahorses

Eldest is prepping to do some house-sitting for some friends of ours. Central to this assignment is the ability to milk a goat. She has gone over around milking time several times now to practice her mad goat-milking skills. This evening when she got back home after milking, our six year old daughter listened to her description of the visit with great interest.

Apparently Eldest left a key bit of information out of the narrative, because finally the 6 year old said, “Was it a boy goat or a girl goat?”

  7. That is so cute. I grew up on a farm and made the mistake of trying to milk a billy goat while my mom was milking our nanny goats…needless to say, I got a little lesson in anatomy that day. (and I think I was about 5!) 🙂
