this kid's got talent

Last night I was taking a short chore break, and got out a fiddle to play for a while. Finn didn't mind the music, but did fall in love with the case...While I played some old Irish tunes he played jump-the-devil's-box, and learned a month-old goat, when perfectly balanced, can stand on a violin case and eat his keeper's shirt at the same time. This kid's got talent, people.

Finn is such a cutie and that pic is great. It sounds like you've got yourself a winner with this goat. He sure is a ham for the camera. :)

I'll never cease to be amazed at a young goat's balance and lack of fear of heights. At times you'd thing their little feet had superglue on them, but every time I check, they are as slick as hard rubber. May wonders never cease.

I was thrilled to find your blog after reading your book. It's very inspiring and I can see why you're so happy with your farm life. It makes me happy just reading about it!
Finn is a doll.

Good looks and talent, Finn will do good. Does he really pose for the camera or is it an accident?

If you think that one kid is fun, you will roll on the floor watching two some day. Thier favorite game is king of the stump, or what ever object they can find, including utility trailers, chicken sheds etc.

I have to read your blog everyday. I just have to. Ha. I have always wanted to do what you are doing but was never brave enough to do it.

I got your book from the library and read it all in just a few hours. When I get some $$ ahead, I am going to buy myself a copy because it is one I need on my bookshelf.

Love Finn and all the rest of the fur and wool and feathered creatures. Keep it up and might think about writing another book soon.

I've been following your blog for just a couple of weeks and I love it!
I don't agree w/ the folks who think you need to have this, this and this to homestead. Owning is no guarantee that you won't lose it. Obviously.
You appear to have a manageable, moveable menagerie and my experience is that it's not that hard to find homes for farm animals if you really have to!
Keep it up, you're an inspiration.
