Unknown territory


The label states here “Common goat. Slovakia”

Let´s leave the goat with two humps and let´s have a look on a strange goat, who probably exchanged the place of camel behind the fence.
Waiting for guests…

Unfortunately, doesn´t give a chance to anybody to sit on her bench. She immediately started to push you with her convex and nitty forehead. Then she fixed her eyes on something and my eyes followed the same direction….

“…Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat:
it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.
It had a perfectly round door like a porthole, painted green,
with a shiny yellow brass knob in the exact middle.
The door opened on to a tube-shaped hall like a tunnel…”

Where did I hear that?

What about breakfast?

Cute goats. Looks like Tellytubby Land! Was it your birthday recently? If so, Happy Birthday!

Hi Tuesdaybe and thank you very much for birthday wishing. What was Tellytubby Land?
This is a private area in Carpathian mountains bought by one Slovak, living in New Zealand. He made here reservation with all kind of foreign animals, like for instance American buffalo, Scottish mountain cattle, kashmere goats, Australian kangoroo, etc. These houses of hobbits from the film "Lord of the Rings" are probably originals from the film (which was made in New Zealand, too).

Goats can I think be single minded and quite bossy, my neighbour kept them and they always seemed to have their own agenda which was mostly what to eat next or how to escape.....

As to tellytubbies well it would be hard to explain...they are childrens tv characters..... maybe the best thing would be to 'google' them I never did understand it!

Pamg, lol. Absolutely! You hit the nail on the head. I did not study goat´s psychology, but this one behaved accordingly to your description. Needless to say, I love individualities, as they are so refreshing :))

Yes, Pam's right about the Tellytubbies - not easy to explain! I like individuality too; probably explains my love of cats. They always do their own thing.

:)) Cat is an actor, dog is an immortal friend.

Probably true! Oscar winners though. Love dogs too, but don't have one - yet.

Since this visit I have played in my mind with the idea of adoption of that goat...:)

Well, I had never seen a real Hobbit hole before!

:)) I saw the Hobbit hole, but no real Hobbit :))
