New Usage for a Lawn Chair

Doesn't matter what kind of "kid" you have, they seem to find new ways to use an object that was not labeled for that usage they discovered.  Take 5 month old mini-Mancha Gwen...........

Now who would have thought this lawn chair could be used as a means to elevate a goat to reach the leaves on a maple tree?  Not I but Gwen did.  I have to give her credit, she has perfect position, nice sleek lines, and she never flipped the lawn chair over. 

I had to laugh because Sweet Pea, my 3 year old LaMancha, mother to twin bucklings this year, appears to be taking a motherly role by scolding Gwen and telling her that is not a good idea and she needs to get down.
However, knowing Sweet Pea, she was probably thinking, "Dang, I should have thought of that first!"

Oh this summer is going to be full of "kids" having fun!  I need to get my sales page updated this weekend and get some of these goat kids posted. 
Off to Amish Country on Friday to get some goodies!

Goats are SOOOOOO smart. I used to love to watch my goaty boys, Pip and Squeak, ponder a situation before implementing their plans. It ususally involved more work, repair,etc. for me though. Too smart!

Aren't goats smart! Love the photos. They will do anything to get at leaves. Grass on the other hand,um, no.
