Goat Cart Ride

Late this spring one of my "Old" girls developed a foot/leg problem and was heavy bred with twins.  She decided to stop walking out in the middle of the pasture just before some expected rain.  Once she was in the wagon she perked right up and put her chin on the rail and watched the world go by..like she was riding in a convertible taking in the day...  Goofy Goat!
What are you looking at?
What are we waiting for...I'm hungry! (Pardon the burn barrel)
Man I thought we'd never get here...NOW FEED ME!!.

Goat Humor---"Busted" by Fred VanderMartin

Busted- Wanna go to the Showstopper Blues

My bills are all due and the nannies need food
But I'm busted
Whole cottonseed is down to a quarter a pound
but I'm busted!

I got a doe that's gone dry and a buck that can't lay
A big stack of bills that gets bigger each day
The county's gonna haul my goat herd away
I'm busted!

I went to Lance Ward to ask for a breedin'
I was busted
I hate to beg like a goat raiser who's needin'
But I'm busted

Lance said that there ain't a thing he can do
My bucks and my does all come down with goat flu
And he was thinkin' of bootin' me with his shoe
Cuz I'm busted!

Lord I'm no thief but a breeder can go wrong
When he's busted!
The credit line I ran this summer is gone

The Does are all barren and the bucks they won't grow
Me and Gwen can't pack up and go
To the showstopper sale over in West Monroe
Cuz we're busted!
