The "RIOTS" of Spring
The results of the goats' Fall sojourn at the Tickleberry Manor love shack have been emerging with astonishing rapidity this week. Baby goats everywhere. In the garage, in the Big Barn, in the Little Barn in the Woods and this morning in my bed. Only the buck barn remains kid free. And any day now, I expect riots to break out among the does concerning childcare inequality. In fact, the does have been wroth about gender inequities ever since one of those mysterious polar vortexes hit Tickleberry Manor this past winter causing major housing upheaval here. Much to the does' chagrin, they were rehoused in the garage while the bucks got the guest bathroom. Wisely, the bucks managed to lock themselves in. Fortunately, my husband knows how to pick locks, a hitherto unknown (to me at any rate) talent, upon which I have been meditating with some suspicion ever since the Great Lockout of 2014 as I now refer to this brouhaha.
But Spring has sprung, snails are on thorns (which according to Robert Browning means all is right with the world if not with snail), and I, between 530 emergency calls to Dr. Cindy our veterinarian, have managed to make ... you guessed it: another home movie.

The authors of this blog vary from entry to entry. Occasionally, I, Head Goat Breeder and Chief of Operations at Tickle Manor Goats, manage to get in a word edgewise; however, a lot of opinionated Nigeran Dwarf goats in fact rule the manor, so you may hear from them more often than from me.
