||One year old|
everyone, my name is Chance (officially One Last Chance) and I just
turned a year old on February 16! My mommy made me special cookies for my
birthday, but I'm not much a sweets lover so I didn't eat them. I don't think
she was very happy about that but my other two friends seemed to love them
and that made her laugh! Anyways, I want to tell you my story.
I was born on a cold rainy day to my goat mommy on my farm. I wasn't the only
one she had though, she had my sister too! My sister is my best friend and I
go everywhere with her, we even sleep together. I remember the day my human
mommy saw me and scooped me up into her arms! I was scared! She took me so
high off the ground and I was so tiny it seemed like I would fall. I screamed
a lot, but after a while, I learned to like being cuddled and often fell
asleep in her arms. I wasn't born on my human mommy's farm though, I was born
on her friends farm so I wasn't her goat yet, that comes next.
One day, when I was a little older and my human mommy was holding me, a big
man took me from her arms. I already didn't like being taken from my human
mommy and then I smelled something that smelled like fire. All of a sudden I
had a TON of pain on top of my head and I cried really loud! It felt like my
whole head was on fire! I didn't understand why I hurt so much and was really
scared. It was over pretty fast though and they put this gooey cold stuff on
my head and handed me back to my nice mommy who talked really soft to me and
cuddled me telling me not to cry. It still hurt though and I was still
moaning from the pain. My mommy started crying and everyone was talking in
hushed voices. They didn't realize how much she loved me. That is when
everyone decided to give me to my human mommy for keeps.
After that though, I wasn't the same. I was very scared of everybody and
didn't even want my mommy coming near me. My mommy would lay me on my side
when she caught me and would hold me there till I relaxed and let her pet me.
I still didn't trust her for a long time. I still don't trust men, but after
a while I finally realized that she wasn't going to hurt me and I became her
baby, or at least that's what she calls me now along with my name, Chance. I
don't know why I have that name, but something tells me I am lucky to be
alive and I have her to thank for it.
Since then I have grown to love her very much and we lay in the field
together a lot. She has also taught me some tricks! I know how to rear up
like a big horse and turn around in circles. She says she is going to teach
me to shake, whatever that is. I love carrots and everytime my mommy brings
me some I go crazy! She doesn't give them to me fast enough. I love to run
around with her in the field and we like to jump over stuff together. I love
my mommy and hope I am always with her!
