Razzle Dazzle & Nelson

Yesterday morning we took little G to pick out two goats at the live stock market in Al Ain. The goats are the latest addition to the old golf club.

 It was bloody hot, we went to so many goat pens and G wanted to touch and pick up all of them. There was one criteria for the selection process and one criteria only - FRIENDLINESS. In the end the goats picked her out. The two that came to her and ate from her hand are the ones that ended up at the new goat pen.

She picked out the names in the truck. The girl goat is Razzle Dazzle and the boy goat is Nelson. They looked very happy at their new home, they grazed on the lawn and was quite content to be patted by all the kids there.

Best of all, G knows that Razzle Dazzle loves pink - she tried to munch on  G's pink skirt several times. G wants to put pink nail polish and Razzle Dazzle and blue nail polish on Nelson. We settled for making name boards for the goats instead.

I'm grateful for:

  • George that came up with the idea of building a goat pen, executed it in record time and involved G in picking out the goats
  • G who learned how to make some tough choices between pretty and friendly
  • Team work to get a wire fence attached to the outer fence in the scorching desert summer heat in record time. George, Oupa, Gabrielle and myself  used wire to fasten the wire fence to the outer structure. Ouma kept us hydrated and looked after Bella
  • G's excitement that there are friendly goats at the golf club that she can touch and feed whenever her little heart feels like it
