To the utter astonishment of the dogs, there were goats in the kitchen sink this morning. Live goats. In the sink.

Over half of you are now making notes to never eat in my kitchen again. Yes, I sank to a new low.

(Well, this might be on par with the calf in the bedroom last year.)

As you have probably figured out by now, the rain did not wash all the syrup off the baby goats yesterday, thus we had to goat-nap and whisk them into the house. While Other Half got the water warm, I let them run around the living room. (cuz they were cute) Then he held one twin while I plopped the dirtiest one into the sink and scrub-a-dub-dub!

Then voila!  Clean goats!

(Slightly disoriented, and telling the flock tales of Alien Abductions, but clean nevertheless)

I find goaties in the sink neither unusual or nasty. LOL What I DO find unusual is that Other Half ASSISTED you!!!! That little girl looks rather honked off.....LOL....

Oh yes, Other Half assisted! Where one kid goes, the other MUST go! She had to go with him when his horns were done and now he had to sit with her while she got her bath! Other Half had to hold her brother while I bathed her.

As a goat owner, I know that they have a pension for getting into everything. But, I'm still confused as to how the goats got into syrup and got all sticky.

Those two are just TOO cute for words. I love seeing your photos of them. Do you snuggle them? Do they like it? I would want to hug all the cute critters on your ranch.

Jess, I made the mistake of letting them have access to an area that had a syrup tub in it. To Non-Farm Folks: a syrup tub is a 50 or 100 lb black tub of molasses mixed with vitamins and minerals. We use them for the cattle and have smaller tubs for the sheep. It's like having a giant Sugar Daddy. They love it.

And YES! The baby goats are quite snuggly. The little boy is really good about snuggling. The little girl has very little patience with it. She's a "woman on the move" and doesn't like to slow down enough to snuggle.

When you said syrup I pictured them dining on maple syrup or the like. I wondered why you would have a vat of syrup large enough for baby goats to climb in. The real version makes so much more sense (although it's less intriguing). I'm familiar with the pails. I had a goat sized one for Frodrick Goatenstein. However, I had to take it away from him because he wanted to spend all day licking on it which caused scours.
