I think many of you may have already heard of Rent-a-Ruminant - a business that rents out goat herds to clear brush from public or private lands in the Seattle area. Rent-a-Ruminant is owned by former EMT, Tammy Dunakin. What I didn't realize is that Tammy is a very entertaining writer and has a blog full of endearing and hysterical stories! Read them HERE
All well and good except just as I have hold of ray (a goat) my trusty rescuer who is supposed to be "holding my ass" vanishes from behind me and slides down to the bottom. I like suck in my breath and make like I am a lizard and suck myself to the cliff wall. I yell down uhhh hey!! You are supposed to be up here, rescuing me. He says " I will be right back up I promise and I say uhhhh that would be good. So when slip and slide fire dude finally gets back to the top with me and I can breathe again I say hold my pant loop and don't let me and Ray fall. He proceeds to do just that but in the process gives me the wedgie to end all wedgies..
Let me explain. When I get scared I get mad and when I get mad I can see red and when I see red my brains shut of f and I become like a lizard.. Lizard brain kicks in and I basically then cannot recognize who or what I am. In this case I screamed some ungodly scream that went something like this.."GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY TRUCK"! the voice that came out of me was not mine . It was some lion or amazon or ninja turtle or something but it was not mine. This all went down in a couple of seconds mind you. When I screamed the dude about shit himself.
The fence decided the weight of 120 goats and the 60 mile and hour winds was too much to bear so it fell to the ground.. More later.. I need a valium . Oh ya.. All this while once again you guessed it, in my pajamas..WTF is up with that??
Here's a video of the goats at work - entertaining office workers. Love it when the one guy says: We are "Men who stare at goats". Too funny
