Getting Your Goat?

Baby goats usually bounce around like they’re on springs; but look what happens when you add a trampoline. Note the grown-up goat who remains safely on the ground: there are old goats and bold goats, but no old, bold goats. And note the dog yapping in the background because he wants to get in on the fun.

There’s so much more to animals than anyone but Walter R. Brooks ever thought.

    Oh my goodness! He was having so much fun 🙂

    I once had a pair of goats Timothy and Daffodil. They were almost like dogs, following me around the yard, coming when I’d call their names. And I had a huge bay tree in my backyard which was their favorite snack. Since they were unable to reach the branches, I would walk over to the tree, call Timmy and Daffy and bend a branch down to their level so they could enjoy a treat 🙂

    And that all happened because the goats that knew how to have fun were more likely to survive than those that didn’t. It couldn’t have been a loving Creator that actually invented fun and happiness. Yeah, sure! 🙂

    Our Creator loves his creations, even silly baby goats that have enjoy life.
