Ug. Somehow I cracked one of my ribs this last weekend. Not sure how it happened...I didn't fall or get hit or anything. I spent a few hours sewing on a quilt last Saturday and when I quit for the day, my side was sore. X-rays yesterday showed a crack in the bone.

I'm supposed to take it easy so it'll heal faster. And since bending hurts like the dickens, I've had to pass my goaty chores on to my 10-year-old Goat Guy. It's a good thing he loves the goats as much as I do! All his training on how to take care of'em are being put to good use!!

As an aside, these gals sleep in the strangest positions. There are times they look like they're dead, the way they pull their heads back.

They also love cuddling with Toby the mutt. The other day I noticed he (the dog) was using Alice's (white goat) rear as a pillow!

How the heck can that happen? Sure glad you've got "Goat Guy" to carry on for you.

You don't remember getting whacked in the ribs hard enough to crack one???? Wow :bow

You were either totally engrossed in the activity or have little sense of pain. :D Now, I often cut myself -- superficially -- if working and don't notice until blood drips but, a cracked rib?? Think I'd feel that. :idunno

"Goat Guy" is probably loving the job & making you proud of him! :love

Well, I AM a redhead and I've heard we have this "superpower" where we're able to handle pain better than "regular" folks. But, still...it's strange. Not sure how I managed it.:idunno
