Goat love triangle

Please take me with you!
Daisy is unhappy today.

You see Sampson made his triumphant return arrived today.  Daisy likes Sampson, but I think she is having problems with how much her sister Lily likes Sampson.  Ahem.  Within minutes of his arrival, Lily was flinging herself mercilessly at him.  And there is very graphic evidence that he didn't mind the attention one bit (aka expect kids in 5 months from this post).

But none of this impresses Daisy who has stood bleating at the gate since this all started.  She already made one great escape, and headed straight to the little stall hoping that I would lock her up with Lily and Sampson's daughter Clarabelle there.

Hanna:  Mommy, for Christmas, I really want somebody to get me a sweet little baby pig.  That way I could love it and hold it, and when it gets big we can eat it.

Me:  But wouldn't you love it too much to eat it, you know, after you love it and hold it as a baby?

Hanna:  No, because somebody would probably get me a boy, and I do NOT love big boy pigs.

Hanna, my dear girl, sometimes you make things ridiculously easy!
