Sadie’s Close Up

A few days ago I linked to the article about the farm that was in our local paper on Saturday.  The online version included a couple of photos, but not Sadie’s close up. This morning I’m extending her 15 minutes of fame by sharing it here.


For some reason the online version featured the picture of me at the chicken coop, rather than this one, which was the feature photo in the print version.


I much prefer this one. So here it is, expanding our own 15 minutes too (as well as Justine’s).

  1. Bill, Sadie is a fine looking goat. I’m afraid a goat would never make the paper in my town. With over 600,000 people in the city, the only thing that really makes the paper is shootings, stabbings, car wrecks, sports, and obituaries, etc. That’s why I don’t get the paper. Every time the newspaper calls me and wants me to sign up, I just tell them I don’t want it. Not to be daunted they want to know why. They never challenge me on my statement of, “There’s never any thing good in it”. They just say good bye and hang up.

    You have a great looking fence and barn/shed. I wish we had some of that snow. It’s been a really dry Winter here. I’m hoping the Spring rains make up for it. It’s hard telling with this crazy weather pattern what will happen on a daily basis let alone two months from now.

    Have a great goat raising day.

      Our county newspaper is a weekly. This article ran in the paper of our nearby city (population about 50,000), which comes out daily. We haven’t subscribed for years.

      It snowed here again yesterday and has been crazy cold. Our power has been out most of the day. It just came back on. I’m glad for that as I know lots of folks would have been very cold tonight if it hadn’t.

    Both of those photos are so fine. I especially like the one of you and Cherie, but that’s not to take away one whit from Sadie.

    All of this does suggest one difference between humans and goats. We humans tend to clip our photos and articles from the newspaper, to save. I suspect Sadie would just as soon eat the newspaper. 😉

      You’re right about Sadie. Today when I was trimming hooves, one of them pulled off my stocking hat to see how it tasted. It might have been Sadie.

      By the way, Emmylou was eating out of my hand today. I caught her a few days ago and let her get a taste of sweet feed. She suddenly isn’t nearly so afraid of me. 🙂


  3. Oh, sweet Sadie .. both photos are great … sure do love those goats …
