The Trip to the Isle of the Fainting Goat
It was very nice, but the goats wouldn't faint or scream for me....

On the shores of the Susquehanna Rivers, in the VERY small town of Nichols sits The Fainting Goat Island Inn.  It is a nice spot to relax and we did.

And this little fellow joined us for breakfast every morning.  His name is Larry.

But I didn't fall for the 'rub my tummy, I won't scratch - HONEST" routine.  My little girl does that all the time.

Goats make great guard animals and are used on a lot of farms.

They don't faint when they see a predator though.

I wanted to see one faint & none did, but I did enjoy my stay.  I discovered goat milk lotion.  It is fantastic.

Correction, I don't know what in the world I was thinking when I said that goats are used as guard animals, it's donkeys that are used to guard goats, sheep etc.

Don't tell the goats - they will scream & faint.

There was a video a while back making the rounds on the internet that showed a donkey killing a mountain lion. It was controversial as many claimed the video was fake. It sure made that ass look like a bad ass though, lol.

At first I thought this would be funny. Then I thought, I don't even know what the hell is going on there.

Not sure if I want to either...

We had a great time - cocktails on our balcony, a little gambling, more cocktails... the joys of life.  

Larry was very friendly - I missed my own fur babies & he filled a void.

Goats are pretty good animals to have around - can save having to mow your lawn on a hot day, and some people like goat milk.  Keep in mind that that's just an opinion from an "old goat" so hopefully it didn't get anyone's goat.

Looks like a great trip even if you didn't see a fainting goat.

At least you got a kitty with a view.

It was lovely.  And relaxing.  The kitty was an added bonus.
