Treed by a goat... and...

...some interesting quotes and proverbs in honor of goats!

If you enter a goat stable, bleat; 
if you enter a water buffalo stable, bellow.

~ Indonesian proverb

Don't approach a goat from the front, 
a horse from the back, 
or a fool from any side.

~ Yiddish proverb

If Providence did beards devise, 
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature.

~ Thomas D'Urfey

If we didn't live venturously, plucking the wild goat by the beard, and trembling over precipices, we should never be depressed, I've no doubt; but already should be faded, fatalistic and aged.

~ Virginia Woolf

If you put a silk dress on a goat he is a goat still.

~ Irish proverb

And for what it is worth, in case you were concerned: no children or animals were harmed or traumatized in the making of this blog post!

And, in fact, as I type up this post, we are expecting Thing 2's wife to deliver her first kid any day, now. Our kids (you know, the human kind) are super excited!
