"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Mountain Goat? Napoleon?

We raise goats, mostly La Mancha's, but we do have a few mixed goats that are La Mancha-Nigerian Dwarf mix. Pepe is a buck that is a mix, and he has been so interesting to have on the farm. He jumps out of his pen every day, and walks the property and checks out all the other animals. He returns to the pen several times during the day, only to patrol again later. He really cracks me up, as he believes he is king. I told Bill we missed out on his name, as we should have named him Napoleon- as he is much more grand in mind than in stature, yet does has a kingdom(the farm)!

Well one of the kids called to me yesterday and asked if I wanted to have a good laugh- of course I said yes. So this is what I found.

Mountain Goat Pepe! What mountain is he on?

The van, of course!

Isn't he a goof?

By the way Pepe was one of the first critters born on the farm(he was a triplet)
