Running With Goats

IMG_5496_9822I’m not sure about a lot of things but there is one thing I know gives me the thrill of happiness that is close to seeing my kids smile…running with goats (specifically Clover, Twix and Gisele).

I have been so lucky to have stumbled into this experience.

I want to give some internet real estate (shout out) to an amazing woman and friend: Deresa!

My friend Deresa has a barnyard of animals.  She is a retired LA Fire Fighter (one of the FIRST women in LAFD) with a knack for the animal kingdom.

She has rescued many animals, raises and care for them.  Dogs, cats, chicken, rooster, turkey, tortoise and rabbits.  Recently she added 3 goats to her crew.

Ghilley is running with us today as well as Bebe and Kona my chocolate lab.

When I met her she was still actively working with Disaster Search.

Not Rescue (she pointed out because I often included ‘rescue’ in my description of what she does),   “If I’m looking for you, you aren’t alive.”   Her dogs have been off the CHARTS amazing on all trail running we’ve done together.  Check out this video:

Gentlemen!  She’s single and a firecracker of a gal.  You’ll have to meet me (and all of her friends) to be approved we love her so much!!

Back to goat running…again…just writing it reminds me how much I love it.

These three goats stay with the front runner most of the time.  They stick together as well.

They make little excited sheep bleeps and I think they’re having as much fun as I am.

Deresa will have the most fit goats on earth hanging around all of us, I’m positive.

If you are having a down moment in life, I highly suggest you find a friend with goats and take them on a trail run!
