Natural Kids, Literally!!

KIDS!! Aren’t they just the cutest!! Recently I made a little trip to a mountainside home (yes, that’s snow on the goats!) to meet some charming furry kids. It’s not so surprising that our own young have acquired this name as well, you only have to spend a short amount of time with some furry kids to see the similarities of fun, playfulness and sometimes mischievous with our non-furry (human) kids.

The goats you see below are for milking and some of their milk also is made into yogurt and kefir. They live outside in a lovely large fenced area to keep them safe from predators in the area (cougars, coyotes, etc). They will soon have a rooftop area to climb up to and enjoy… call it a deluxe playground for furry kids… with a view.
Kids are very curious and anything dangly was in danger of getting nibbled. Okay, maybe my kids (non-furry!) don’t really nibble clothing, strings, etc…

I think mama might be saying, “I’ve got my eye on you…”!!
On second though maybe I was getting eyed up for some butting…
“Hey chickens come back here, you’re really interesting” . These chickens co-habitate with kids and I have to say they are pretty good sports about it.

I think we had a collective thought: “more snow…again…”

You can see the teeny-tiny horns growing on the (awfully cute!) little one and some larger ones on the one below.
Goats are fun to spend time around, unless they butt you! Now is a great time to go to a farm or a petting zoo with your kids (non-furry) if you have one nearby as there are usually kids (furry) and they are a blast to watch.

For some nifty ‘GOAT’ items from the NaturalKids Team members you can connect to the shops below (hopefully I didn’t miss any!):

  1. Great post! I am loving it! Thanks for the cute pictures, too!

  2. I L O V E goaties. We had goats, briefly. They wanted to hang out with me all the time, they wanted to come into the kitchen (I did let them, once). They baaaaa'd constantly. So we decided they needed a bigger herd, so they went off on their adventure. Goats are smart!

  3. Does that mean we will communicate via "baaa-ing from now on? LOL

  4. Goats are so much fun! The pictures are wonderful!

  5. Perhaps if our non-furry kids aren't listening we could just trying "baaa-ing" at them… lol!

  6. I have always wanted goats it is in my marriage prenuptial!!!

  7. You are right, kids are very curious in many things.. They asked question out of the world questions..:) The goats are soo cute..I love the photos! It is much better if you also post the photos of the kids while with goats.. 🙂
