Someday, Kid, All This Will Be Yours

This grass aye been in the proud possession o’ the MacGrooff family for nigh o’er 30 generations, laddeh. Me sainted father nibbled it, and his father, as far back as any man kinna knoo. Ach, ’tis a wee patch o’ Heaven ye’ll be tendin’ when last I leave yeh. Ye moost have soberin’ thoughts abou’ the weight of it now, aye?

TribalGirl tells us about these Nigerian dwarf goats: “They live on a suburban farm (yes, a suburban farm) which doubles as a bed and breakfast and also a summer camp.”

[apparently our sender-inner is also known in the comments section as Dances With Goats.]

  27. Anonymous Coward says:

    Ann eef eez no’ scottish, is’ crap!

  28. Mary (the first) says:

    omg a B-n-B with goats!

  29. tracylee says:

    oh come on – you tell us about this dream land farm BnB with goats, and you don’t tell us WHERE this Xanadu is?! harrumph!

  30. TribalGirl says:

    As I told ARF – Google “stone house farm”, and the official website will be the first up. Sorry I didn’t say before… I’m paranoid about Internet security. (Gosh, I say that a lot.)

  31. TrixandSam says:

    Even in silhouette you can see the knobularity and sense the sproingen-hoofen of bebbeh goatlet’s legs.

  32. sproingen-hoofen is a most excellent phrase that i shall now be stealing kthnx!

  33. Is the bigger goat pregnant? That’s certainly a very bulgy middle.

  34. TribalGirl says:

    No, goats are sort of… naturally bulgy, I guess.

  35. TribalGirl says:

    Also, the she’s the mom of the baby goat. Said baby goat was only a week old when the picture was taken, so the mom might still have been recovering.

  36. kodalai says:

    Don’t you mean “and TRIPLES as a summer camp?”

  37. I agree with tracylee – where is this heaven on earth?!

  38. TribalGirl says:

    It’s called Stone House Farm… I don’t want to say anymore because I’m paranoid about Internet security, but if you Google it, the official website will be the first result.

  39. That’s so cute!!!

  40. {“shhhhh – keep quiet and stay in here until the guests have gone!”}

  41. TribalGirl says:

    I can’t believe it! The Powers That Be, the great Gods of Cute, have actually stooped to look down upon my small offering!

    *victory dance*

    YAYYYYYYYYY!!!! I am SO telling my friends on about this.

  42. it’s actually Mac Nac Feegle they are speaking….

  43. Oops – I mean Nac Mac Feegle ! We big jobs get it wrong sometimes…

  44. TribalGirl says:

    They’re probably there because they want to see what Special Goat Liniment tastes like. :)

  45. Fird Birfle says:

    goats. GOATS. gOaTs. GoAts. gOATs. GOats. goAtS. [etc]

  46. I *love* the hover text
