My lovely nanny goat an unusual gift for my thirteenth birthday shiny coat Dad would milk her I’d carry all the milk away White fur Cute pet Loved to eat hay wet My lovely nanny goat I’d carry all the milk away Wet *a true story I had a nanny goat 'Susie' for my 13th birthday, when we purchased her she was in kid and once the kids had been weaned we used to milk her twice every day.

I love the look of this goat; I imagine she lived to a ripe old age? Did she butt anyone? Just had to ask. Lovely Jan!

She lived to a grand age and yes she did headbutt someone who broke into her shed - we think he was trying to steal her or one of her kids - we heard frantic bleating and then saw this young guy running lol:-) hugs jan xx

Again a co-incidence I have written a poem about a goat but have not posted it, was not for a contest but after reading this lovely write, I might still post it. I enjoy goats, such loving animals, the villages in Greece have many goats and a roast goat on the spit (shame I'm sorry) is delicious! Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

aww she was lovely we used to go down to the market hall and got giveaways of the produce they couldnt sell - she loved the over ripe bananas and would eat them with the skin on lol:-) hugs jan xx

Hi Jan, I enjoyed your poem about your pet goat. I liked it even more when I read that it was a true story. I've had a pet cat, dog, and a roster( chickens) growing up. But not a goat which I think would have been cool, by the way. Best wishes for the contest. Have a wonderful evening:-) Alexis
