My photo
I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

Now a burglary!

We are trying to be philosophical about the fowl fox.
Thank you for all your kind comments on yesterday's post.

However it feels as if we lurching from one disaster to another.

One day this week Rose
a blogger I have previously respected

They seemed simple enough...even for me.  

So after my shower, 
I left the shower door open, 
and also opened the bathroom window 
to let the room dry and air.

We were burgled!

Well, I will let the pictures tell the sad story!

Casing the joint

Over-riding the security system

Checking the coast is clear

The rest of the gang

'There's nothing worth stealing!

Now...I will have to clean
the hoof prints off the window sill.

Thanks Rose!


  1. That is just too cute and too funny!!

  2. I have to tell the story of Ishtar, our first (and last) goat, who would brave an electric fence, jump a wire fence, push over a paling fence, pretend she couldn't help tangling herself so pitifully on a tether, or just pull up the stake....all so she could break into the house (doorknobs no obstacle)and climb into our bed. No matter what we did, we would come home to find her happily chewing her cud amongst a little circle of goat poo in our bed. Goats are way too smart!

  3. HA! I was worried before I saw the goat head in the window!

  4. I love your goats, Hazel! But they would get up to no good here. We are forever guilty of leaving keys in the car (and sometimes with horse float attached) So I can just see your goats speeding down the road with the windows down, stereo blaring with a horse float in tow and wearing their Rayban Wayfarer sunglasses.

    To/Two/Too gorgeous little troublemakers!

  5. Ha! Totally unexpected from the title and so cute!!

  6. Those goats take after you Hazel, they are naughty, naughty, naughty....
    I hate to think what they are going to get up to in your outdoor kitchen......
    Glad you are feeling a little bit happier today after a sad day yesterday...x

  7. What cheeky little goats you have, and what a fun post.
    Maybe you can train them to do some chores instead of creating more work for you.

  8. great little story, those goats sure do look like they keep you on your toes.....

  9. That's precious! Cute story and fun pics! Thanks for sharing

  10. That is so funny...very good after yesterday.

  11. Ha ha... gorgeous post :D)

  12. lolol fantastic post and very cute goats! Hope they don't keep trying it now they've worked out how... :)

  13. You are a BUGGER! I was having heart failure and was ready to run down and defend your territory.

    Cheeky things.

  14. So funny that you caught them in the act! Beautiful photos too. Never trust a goat I say!

  15. I somehow knew it first thing that came to my mind was what did the goats do now.But I loved the pictures I had your goats being carted off to jail in stripy pjs or with swag bags and little masks.

  16. Gorgeous goats!
    Hope you're coping ok without your feathered brood x

  17. I think Bazza and Bubba plotted this harmless adventure to brighten your day!

  18. LOL. You make feel much better after down with my cold!They are handfuls. But it is never boring with them around.

  22. Oh I love goats and their cheeky, curious ways. I hope to have my own one day-but I'm starting to realise that will require some serious fences. Thanks for sharing your great pictures, they made me smile.
