Years ago, I had the crazy idea that I wanted pet goats! AND I wanted them really bad! miniature ones...:)
Mom and dad agreed and we went one Friday night to a livestock auction and bid on 2 little miniature goats! I named them Billy & Giant[Kaz came up with that name!]
I LOVED them! Billy would let you hold him, pet him..whatever you wanted to do!
Giant on the other hand wouldn't come near you!
I can still remember the day they got fixed! I went inside because I couldn't bear to watch. BUT poor little things squealed so loud I could hear them inside:(
Giant didn't last very long....SO we got another goat. A bigger one! I named him Leroy.
What better names for goats than Billy & Leroy!
Over time we came to realize that Billy wasn't a miniature goat...He WAS HUGE!
Leroy and Billy were best buds! Everybody in Patrick knew about our goats![My parents live on a main road and you can see the goat pin from the road....]
Billy died awhile back and this past weekend Leroy passed away. We knew it was only a matter of time. They were great goats and we had a lot of fun with them! I'm thankful my parents went along with my crazy idea to get them in the first place! Kaz and I had our pictures taken back in October in the country and I really wanted to take some in the goat pin because I didn't know how much longer Leroy would be around and thought it would be a neat memory! I'm so glad I did now no matter HOW CRAZY they look:)
Mr. Billy always ask me about Leroy every time I see him!
Billy & Leroy were famous in our small town:)

I know this is CRAZY BUT I begged my parents to buy leashes so we could walk them one Christmas! I have no idea what I was thinking! Who takes goats on a walk? Ha

My mom fed him saltine crackers every day!

You're probably thinking," She sure is crazy"! Yes I am BUT that's okay:)
