Last night, after picking the girls up from school, we were greeted by this guy when we got home.
And how cute is that! I pulled into the driveway and he almost went into the garage, but I closed it as I saw him and he went back up on the porch. The girls wanted to keep him, but I don't know the first thing about goats. There are a lot of people in our rural neighborhood that have chickens, goats, horses, sheep, etc.
I had a notary coming over so that we could close on our refi, so I called her and said, "Uh, this is kinda weird, but I don't want you to be startled. There is a goat on my porch." She was asking me all of these questions that I thought were weird having never met this woman. Like, "Is he healthy?" and "Has this happened before?" I was thinking, you're missing the point, lady.
Anyway, the girls loved him, and kept looking out the window to see if he was still there. He stayed for a couple of hours. Ryan called a nearby friend that had other goats to see if he wanted to come get him. He said yes and asked if we would tie him up. Ryan and I went out to see if we could get him ready for transport and he was gone. :(
I told the girls that he went back to his mama. Our friend said that they don't normally wonder too far from where they live, so hopefully, I am correct in that he went home.
