Free Goats

Oh, dear. There is a very interesting ad on the Austin Craigslist tonight. In case the ad has been removed by the time you read this, here is the screen shot:

The listing reads: "I have 2 dozen goats I need to get rid of. I had no idea raising goats would be this hard. These little bastards keep eating all my wife's flowers and climbing on our goddamn cars. Nobody told me they were such good climbers. The first person to get these damn goats out of here can have them."

I can't stop laughing about it. This man has obviously been tested beyond his limits. Two DOZEN goats? No wonder!

I just texted him about the goats. It's possible I could be the proud owner of two car-climbing flower-eating goats tomorrow. Oh dear.


  1. Do you have a fenced area? I have SO many questions! :)

  2. That's hilarious! Are these meat goats? Will you eat them? I am toying with the idea of getting dairy goats. But I will need some actual fencing probably, to keep them away from flowers and cars ;-)

  3. Oh. My. Goodness.

    We are powerless over the free postings on CL. It's an actual medical fact. Free postings on CL = addition of goods and/or animals that we may previously had talked ourselves out of.

    I'll make you a deal. You get goats and I'll get a turtle. (Since I can't add more backyard livestock, I get to add indoor amphibians. I'll sell it to the H like a Christmas present for the tot.)

    1. You are such an enabler! It's true about the free postings. That's why I try not to look at them. Can't you get some goats??

  4. Oh, wow. I can't wait to hear what happens. A goat at a petting zoo ate my dress and made me cry when I was a wee one. I've been obsessed with them ever since. This is exciting!


I love to read comments so please leave me one!
