They ougtta be in pictures

While I was busy smashing my car window yesterday, Christian had a bit of a nutty day at the farm.

Christian's brother, Hunter, and some of his friends are participating in the 48 Hour Film Project. With time being a huge factor, they thought it might be best to do a film without actors. So they came to film at our farm. The goats would be the actors.

Apparently that didn't go as well as they had hoped. Heh.

Those of you who have dairy goats or have been out here know how docile they are, that we can lead them easily and that it's not too hard for us to get them to do what we need them to do. Usually.

To the less-exposed, I suppose that translates into "trained". It would seem they found out the hard way that that is not really the case. The reason they do the things we want them to do has more to do with the fact that we pretty much ask them to perform same set of tasks each day. "Look scared" is not one of them.

By the time I got home from market, the guys were at lunch trying to figure out how to make their hard, hot, sweaty, under-productive day turn into a film resembling the script they wrote the night before. I hope they were able to make it work. The film is due tonight and we hope to get a copy to post on the blog. Good luck, guys. And sorry our goats didn't quite get it.
