Every year our family goes to Weakland Farm to pick a pumpkin at the patch. It's a great place--petting zoo, corn maze, hay maze, hay mow to play in, hayride...loads of fun. Anyway, today they had this goat as part of the petting zoo. I can't say the pictures are the greatest, but perhaps you'll get an idea of how it went. Goats are really smart, and this one was quite funny, too. The goat could walk up this ramp to the top of a platform, and there was a pully-type deal where you put in the food in the bottom, turned the wheel, and it would go up a belt to the goat. The rest is self explanatory:
Just in case you wondered...
"What does a gal have to do to get a snack around here?"
"It's in HERE!"
"Hurry it UP already!!!!"
"I guess I'll just have to do it myself." She actually could turn the wheel at the top and bring the Cheerios up the belt unassisted. It was pretty funny to watch. It was like she was thinking, "If you want something done RIGHT, you have to do it yourself."
We spent the majority of the time feeding Cheerios to this silly goat--we didn't even get to the corn maze, usually everyone's favorite part, because we spent so much time here that it got dark before we did much of anything else. But you can tell from the kids' faces that they were having a ball!
