Jubilee is a purebred Nigerian dwarf dairy goat—nary a mountain goat in her pedigree—but she has mountaineering aspirations. Even when she was a kid, she was jumping and climbing up on anything or anyone she could find.
Well, Hubby hauled home a load of wet, frozen barley straw bales the other day. The cows love to snack on them, even though they look unappetizing to us.
But Jubilee thought that Hubby had brought her a mountain of her own. At sundown, the other goats had headed home for supper, but Jubilee wanted to stay on her mountaintop. I shook a can of her favorite food, oats, but even then she came reluctantly.
By the way, Jubilee and the other does will be kidding in May. Stay tuned for cuteness!
"The One who is high and lifted up, who lives forever, whose name is holy, says:
I live on high, in holiness, and also with the crushed and the lowly, reviving the spirit of the lowly, reviving the heart of those who have been crushed." ~Isaiah 57:15 CEB
