Goat Wranglers

This is Peter. He has been a very bad goat. He's broken fences, chased his sons and daughters away from their food, and even bucked me once (big mistake, Peter).

This is K. He has some past wrangling experience. Cows, not goats. See, he even has his own lasso. He is after Peter who has once again broken the fence. Boo, Peter!
After much chasing - that involved the entire family running through the yard (3 acres), screaming and cursing Peter's existence - Peter was cornered and caught. Of course, our friend from church pulled into the yard just as this began and was treated to the entire show. You're welcome Cecelia, most circuses charge for their clown show!

K and his trusty assistant little k dragged a now successfully wrangled Peter to the barn where he will be separated from his wives and progeny until I can decide what to do with him.


I decided. After unsuccessful attempts to sell or give him away, Peter now exists on another plane of existence. That plane is called my deep freezer. Gyro, anyone?

Okay, would have love to have seen that! We want goats so that would have been good to see how its done. Is he really in your freezer? I had goat BBQ one time and about puked. But I was pregnant and the whole thought of it was just too much. How do you eat it?

Mar,
No offense to the Peters out there!

Mama,
We had him processed into ribs, chops, a roast, ground, and cubed cuts. I picked him up Thursday and we haven't tried him yet. I'll let you know when we do, though!

Again, so sorry to all people named Peter!!!! ;)
