I love it when people ask me what I've been doing lately, and among the normal responses like shopping, working, etc., I get to say, "Taking care of the goat." They usually do a double-take! Last week, my boss's response was, "Wait, did you just say 'goat'?" I had to giggle!
Yes, I help my son take care of a goat, which he named Kuzco. The goat is an FFA project, and it's a lot of work! We are city people. I did live in a smallish town growing up, which has grown considerably since, but we never had livestock. We had a dog. At one time we had two cats. And my sister had a pet rabbit... for a while. But livestock? I know nothing about livestock! But I'm learning.
Our livestock show is at the end of January, so we don't have much time now. I hope we can get Kuzco caught up enough to look good next to the other goats instead of scrawny like he was when he was sick. If he doesn't do well at the show, my heart will break, but it's going to break anyway when we have to see him go. I kinda like that goat!
