You can take a boy out of the country...

... but you can't take the country out of the boy!

When we were in Kaiserstuhl , we walked by this enclosure with about 4 cute baby goats. We all oohed and ahhed over them and then kept going, only to find out that Jace was no longer with us. When we turned around, this is what we found:

Jace was feeding the goats. It was obvious that the wee guys liked the rose bush leaves a lot as all the plants inside the enclosure had been stripped bare, and this little guy was stretching and reaching for the leaves outside.

Naturally, being the goat lover that he is (he has a long love/hate relationship with the goats... perhaps he can explain on the blog someday...)(correction, Jace says it is a love only relationship!), Jace decided to help the little fella and of course the percocious goat ate right out of the palm of his hand. Good to know I am not the only one under his spells. :)

Ahhh cute, but don't you find that goats have the weirdest eyes??? They freak my out because their irises (I think that's right) are all diamond or slit shaped. tell me I'm not crazy and you know what I'm talking about :oP

LOL.

I think I know exactly what you mean. I am also a bit weirded out by the shape of their heads... it is just too pointy and narrow...

I am happy that Jace can be the goat lover for both of us... there is truly only room for one in a marriage. :)

I can totally relate. My husband is a farm boy at heart too. I just know that the 5 years that we lived in the countryside (Zufikon, canton Aargau) I felt like I was cut out of the civilized world! Swiss men... take them, put them in a nice suit and on a desk, but they remain faithful to Heidiland ;-)

I love goats too. They're so adorable.
