Mom has taught some of us goats at the farm how to pull a wagon. I haven’t learned because I’m a studly buck, and when I get excited, I sometimes pee on things, like the person holding onto my lead.
Last week, I told you about how Mom gathers and feeds wild blackberry leaves to my girlfriends and our pregnant ewes. But blackberry is only one of thousands of plants used in herbal veterinary medicine.
Last week, Katy the Alpine goat gave birth to my newest kids. They’re a boy named Ranger and a girl named Rapunzel. They’re cute! Ranger is so colorful that Mom says he’s going to become a working goat and pull her wagon and cart—maybe even go in parades!
Uzzi and I were munching the yummy, crisp leaves that fall in our paddock and gazing at the beautiful autumn colors in our woods when Uzzi swallowed and then said, “Why do they do that? Why do the leaves change colors before they fall?”
Uzzi and I love this time of year because soon we’ll be eating yummy pumpkins. Pumpkins are loaded with vitamin A and beta-carotene, the USDA says, and we think they just taste good!
