Clash of the Titans!

Er, Clash of the timid, tame, timorous, tippytoesing Titans.
Maybe the bull is getting bored.

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

(Peering through magnifying glass) These two little peanut Nigerian Dwarf baby goats, known as kids, were born this spring to “Cupcake” & “Rodney” of the Goat Yard at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo. If you are wondering what the kids’ names are, we are too! Anybody out there know?

UPDATE: We got names! Er, we got four names …er, which goes where we’re not totally sure  :-)

“Farmer Jon Appleby got the surprise of his career one week ago, when triplet calves were born on his farm in Wirral, England.”

“I couldn’t believe it,” the 44-year-old veteran farmer told TODAY.com of the rare phenomenon. “It was quite a shock.” When the cow went into labor, Appleby stayed close by for the first two births, then left, assuming the excitement was over. He returned an hour later, only to find one more baby by her side. “We’ve never had triplets before.”

Twins are somewhat common among bovine births, triplets and quadruplets are estimated at approximately 1 in 100,000 births.

That Troll Won’t Know What Hit Him

They are everywhere… and they are nowhere. They are a rumor on the wind, a rustle in the trees, carelessly dismissed — until too late. You’ll never see them coming. You cannot prepare. There is no escape from… The Ninja Goat Squad!

A Cow or a Cloud?

Next time you look up in the sky and see a bovine shaped cloud, thank a fluffy cow.

“After some Googling, it seems these fluffilicious cows are bred/sold by Matt Lautner Cattle.  Unbearably adorable. Don’t you just wanna hug and snorfle them?” -Kim L.

The Ascent of Mt. Wilbur

Day 11: Have reached summit at last. Feeling of joyous exhilaration surrounds me — whoops, slipped off there. Like I was saying, my indescribable bliss at — whoa, there I go again — the sight of the panoramic view is — wha-HEY! Wow, somebody must have greased this mountain recently!

Woolly Bullies

Just put down the hay bales and back away slowly.
