Who knew goats have a short attention span?

Oh goodness this made me laugh.  Apparently some rent-a-goats decided to mosey on over to greener pastures unbeknownst to the rest of the town:

Re: Who knew goats have a short attention span?

OMG that's funny!!  That could be where I live!!  About this time of year every year one of the Ranchers brings his herd of goats to eat clear a river bed that runs through town.  DH and I have watched them every year and they are SO hilarious!  Their silly little heads and pushing each other..... Today they finished munching the river  bed clear and off they went back home.  But the owner puts up a good temp fence and watches over the herd on and off every day until they're done.  Silly, silly goats... I love them!!  Woman LOL

I tend to wander off.  Sometimes for food, sometimes for shiny things, sometimes just because I want to.  Dang, I'm a goat. Smiley Happy

Hello @Preds, hope you are doing and feeling well my friend . . . Heart

 

Seriously when I first saw this story my first thought was those hilarious baby goat yoga classes and all I could think of was the universe is trying to tell an entire town they needed to get in shape . . . downward goat anyone? . . . Smiley Happy

They are SO cute and sweet and funny! 

Thanks for sharing, @mtc - the videos and pics are great, and I think at least one person wondered "are we in heaven?".  

 

Really cute GIF of a goat using a slide like a real kid.

@feline groovy  I know if I ever woke up to a yard full of goats I would probably open the front door, let them in and claim to the police I swear I never saw them . . . Smiley Happy

 

My fave raves are the videos with the baby goats in pajamas:

Re: Who knew goats have a short attention span?

I’m a goat too!  

 

I thought I was a giraffe, as they have an attention span of 14 seconds. If goats come in under 14 seconds, then I’m a goat. 


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

Aren't these the Beekman goats who moved from Evine in Wisconsin down to HSN in Florida?

 

I love goats.  They are a lot of fun.
