Post: Just chillin'

Yesterday I took the goats for a walk.  When we came back I laid down in the grass at the edge of an area where we pile brush, tree branches, etc. before burning.  The goats love to browse on the pi...

I saw this ad on Craigslist.  This person is going to be SO sorry they chose llamas!  They obviously have no idea what it takes to make a pack animal. https://kpr.craigslist.org/grd/d/pasco-wtb-i...
