    Wow, what a great set of goats! :thumbsup
    I see the Muck boots are back. I was a little concerned. First there were "the shoes", then flip flops and shorts. I had anxiety attacks every time I opened your thread. What was next, a dress and heals? o_O But the boots are back and all is right with the world once again.

    LOL those flip flops were NOT mine!
    Those were SBC's daughter's!
    I haven't worn flip flops in over 7 years now…

    I never understood why someone would wear flip flops on a farm :idunno

    People ask me how I live in NC and don't wear shorts :lol: I am a jeans girl through and through.

    Thanks for the compliments on the goats. :)

    When I first moved to our 5 acres I wore flip flops or garden clogs all summer long, even when doing chores with the goats. But I only owned three goats and was pretty good at dodging their feet. As time progressed so did the number of goats and I got stepped on one too many times and the flip flops got retired except for working on the pool or in the garden. Then I saw pictures of a foot after a rattlesnake bite and now the flip flops are only for pool work or town trips...occasionally to the garden to pick produce but with one eye on the ground at all times. I do however wear shorts and tank tops around the farm and I don't care what I look like. It's HOT.
