He Did What?

We took a drive to my mother’s over the weekend, where the kids got to spend some time playing with all the animals. My mom and stepfather have quite the little menagerie going–horses, lambs, goats…I think chickens and pigs will be coming soon as well.

Some of the goats are itty bitty, and my kids thought it would be fun to try to catch one and ride it. Well, goats are also quick on their feet, so they ran; my kids ran after them. What no one bothered to realize is that the goats and kids were running in a rather small circle in the pen that houses these animals. Eventually the chasee became the chaser; and when Ayden turned around, Tex the Goat promptly got up on his back legs and knocked my son right down to the ground! Ayden wasn’t hurt (thank God), though when he realized what had happened he started to cry a bit. Here’s a photo of the sad little guy, post-smackdown.

    I give him full marks for getting in a pen with goats in the first place! I couldn’t do it – and I think Miss E is taking after me – she wouldn’t touch them at Lowry Park Zoo, either!

    Hope A didn’t get too big a shock.

    I’m sorry your little guy got “smacked down” by Tex. I hope he was able to get over it pretty quickly.
