This picture is so cute, I just can't stand it.  Lucky Charm and Love Me Tender peeking through a pine bough. 
Our goats sometimes seem to be part Fainter and part wildcat.  And who do you call when your Fainter/wildcat is stuck in a tree? 
Rado to the rescue! 
He has been taking his kid-sitting duties very seriously!
It's a new twist on the "Mommy and Me" exercise program!
You can see that Yo Ho Ho is also fascinated.
Every time we think we've seen everything, the kids prove us wrong.   We have rotated our does and kids to a new pasture, full of multifloral rose bushes.  For the past few days, when Calamity Jane returns to the upper pasture for the night, full from foraging, her buck, Pickin' On The Back Porch, jumps on her back for a ride.
"Oh my heavens!" thinks Oh My Heavens.  Yo Ho Ho will not stop until he is captain of Syncope Falls Farm!
The weather is improving and the kids are feeling great!  Yo Ho Ho is mixing it up with Smoke on the Appalachians.  But does this pirate goat stop with his antics with this goat....um, no.

On October 31, Syncope Falls Farm was happy to host its second annual Appalachian Adventure open house.  We took the group around the farm and as it was Halloween, we decided to let the goats in on some of the fun. 

What happens when you give a few adults and some kids a bag of costume items, one goat and 5 minutes?  A lot of laughs and some fantastic looking goats.
