Martha, Martha, MARTHA!

Okay, this is enough! This blog is not about Martha the goat -- it's about LUCY! Super great that Martha can hike, but she is no where near as wonderful and great as I am. I am LUCY! I am the best! To reaffirm my greatestness, here are some pictures of me over the years.

Here's me back when I was just a doeling. The black and white goat was a buddy of mine that went to a new home. She was Mrs. Brown's daughter.

Here is my twin brother, Travis. He is the black and white one. The other goat is TaDa, my cousin.
Matilda and I last winter in the snow. Notice our luxurious winter coats.

Me the other day. Aren't I the cutest?!

Martha Makes It To The Top!!

On Sunday, Martha tried going up Loon Mountain again. This time the farmer and her could drive in to the trailhead and didn't have to walk the extra 1.5 miles in. Here are some pictures from the hike.

Here's Martha getting kisses from the farmer's friend, Sam, halfway up the mountain.

She made it to the top! The view was amazing!
Here's Martha and the farmer posing near the firetower that was on the top of the mountain.
Martha's getting neck skritches from the farmer's friend Cynthia.
Martha looks very fetching in her "I am not a deer, don't shoot me" orange hiking shirt.

Martha Goes Hiking!

Martha got to go hiking on Sunday with the farmer. I am very jealous but I think I wouldn't have found it so much fun to walk for 4 hours just to go nowhere but up a stupid mountain. Here are some pictures from the hike:
Here they are starting up the trail to Loon Lake Mountain.

Martha started with the leash on but then was let off the leash after they got on the trail a ways.
The trail had lots of bridges to cross. Here the farmer helps Martha over the bridge so her feet don't get stuck in between the loose boards.

This bridge was too shaky to walk on so the farmer carried Martha across the water and set her down on the other side. Carrying her works well for now but once she gets a little bigger it will be harder to pick her up and carry her around water obstacles. I guess Martha will have to learn to get her feet wet.

Marth did well on the trail and got to stop for a snack before they turned around and went back home.
Here they are almost back to the beginning of the trail. It was a nice day with a little rain but cleared up after a bit.

The end of the trail! Time to go home and rest after that long hike!
