Yes, we have two dogs. Our dogs names are Scout and JJ. This week we have another dog named Surry. She belongs to Quin and Xander. They are away for Fall Break so Surry gets to stay on the farm.
Surry loves the farm, she loves being outside.
Like many dogs, Surry likes to howl when she hears the sirens. If you listen closely you can hear Scout howling, too.
We have really good dogs!
Do you obey your parents and your teacher as well as our dogs obey me?
I love these dogs! They obey, they play, they do good work on the farm, and they don't bark very much!

Scout is in the front. Scout is a boy.
They will sit here as long as I tell them to.
They won't move unless I tell them it's ok to get up.
It's really important that we remove horns from baby goats. Goats horns can grow very big! Your teacher has a big goat horn to look at.
I don't think your parents would let you play with your friends if you were carrying knives in your hands. Goats love to play, just like you do. If they have horns on their heads they can hurt each other or people. They don't want to hurt anyone on purpose, so we make sure they are safe. We take off their horns when they are babies.
Sometimes the horns grow back, but not very well. Those small, weak horns are called scurs.
Curly doesn't mind us cutting his scur off. It doesn't hurt to cut it off. Trimming scurs is just like trimming fingernails (or hooves!)
|Can you see the little sore that was underneath Curly's horn?|
We have to take Curly's horn off because it grows around in a circle and right into his head.
