Goat with View

Eleven years I purchased my first farm animal, a 3 month old Nigerian Dwarf wether that I named "Cubbie". Needless to say, one goat snowballed into a lot more but Cubbie knows he is my favorite, hands down. The day after school let out for summer break, I was sitting in the screened-in-porch having a bowl of cereal after I did morning chores and I heard hooves coming up the stairs on the deck. 
I just started cracking up because I knew exactly who it was.

Every summer for I don't know how long, Cubbie assumes the position of deck sitting.  He eats breakfast then meanders himself up to the deck and hangs out there for as long as he sees fit. He never bothers the plants or flowers on the deck, he just hangs out.

Why Cubbie is inclined to sit on the deck, I will never know.  Maybe its the shade, the flies aren't there to bother him...............

........maybe its the view, maybe he is looking over his domain as he knows he is "farm favorite" and "top animal" and he can get away with it.  Regardless, it puts a smile on my face every time I see him hanging out on the deck, just enjoying the summer.  Darn goats, I just love their sense of enjoying life!

Looks like he is enjoying that sun beam! Very cute :)

My guess is he likes to lounge around on the deck, because you sit there as well. He knows he is an important part of the family! He looks great for 11!

Either way it's very cute that he sits on the deck, what a great story, and what a happy looking fella he is.

What a dear, sweet guy you have in Cubbie. He wants to be near you now that your vacation has started. Give him a scratch and a hug for me. I miss my two goaty-boys.
