We were back in Bemidji last weekend for the 4th of July, my art opening and our class reunion. Lyle and Teryl and their two boys, Lee and Tyler, came into town on the 4th with a surprise--they brought Lucky, their young goat.
Lucky was the runt of a set of triplets born this spring. The mother wouldn't accept him so he was hand-fed and started life out in the kitchen. Teryl says he doesn't have a clue that he is a goat- he'd much rather hang out with people than the other goats. He is a boer-nubian mix, about half the size they expect him to be full-grown.
He's a pretty cute lapgoat! Even my dad seemed kind of smitten.
