Noel the Christmas Goat

All Rights Reserved ©


This is a children's story that I wrote awhile ago based on a goat we got from a Lamancha Farm (a goat that has no ears). So when she came to our farm and we raise lop rabbits and other animals with floppy ears. I am also a teacher and am always teaching lessons on Bullying. I know the story needs some editing but I wanted to get some comments of feedback.

Noel the Christmas Goat

Noel is a goat and she lives on a farm with a bunch of other goats.

These goats are not like Noel, they have very short ears on their heads.

Noel has big floppy ears.

All the animals on this farm have short pointy ears. The animals all make fun of Noel’s ears.

The other goats call her “Flip Flop” and the Bunnies laugh at her floppy ears.

The chicken always ask her how she can walk and not trip over those long ears.

Everyone on the farm makes fun of her floppy ears.

One day the farmer decides to have a petting farm and invite all the local children to come see his animals.

Noel is hopefully that she will be chosen to be a part of the petting farm, but the farmer puts her in the barn.

Noel is very sad and watches through a small hole in the wall.

All the other goats getting treats and being petted by the children of the town.

Noel wishes she could be like them and then she could be out there too.

Fall ends and winter begins, the barn becomes very cold.

The other goats won’t let Noel in the stall with them, so she curls up in a stall all alone in the straw.

One day a man comes to the farm saying he is looking for a goat, a special goat.

The farmer shows the man all his best goats with their short pointy ears.

The man keeps shaking his head at each goat, saying they just are not right.

Then the man sees Noel all alone in a corner of the barn.

Walking over to her, he talks to her and she sees him smile as he pats her head.

He then talks to the farmer and they shake hands.

The man put a rope on Noel and brings her out of the barn and puts her in a truck.

Noel is scared of the truck and the man has to lift her into it.

The truck is very loud as they drive down the road.

They come to another farm that is decorated in bright colorful lights.

The man lifts her out of the truck and leads her to a new barn.

As she enters the barn she sees Bunnies just like her old farm, but they are not laughing at her. They have long floppy ears!

She then sees other goats just like her old farm, but they have long floppy ears!

As the man puts her in a pen filled with straw a dog runs up and the dog has long floppy ears too!

The man give Noel a treat, patting her on the head and says “Merry Christmas Noel!

Welcome to your new home, Noel the Christmas goat!

You will love our Christmas petting farm I think you will be our new star!!” Noel has found where she belonged.

frida: Great book and choosing a 12 year old as lead is an exceptional idea. Kind of original (not really but not mainstream either) using a child’s journey fitting in somewhere new and also how to be part of a family.
