Awkward Trio

Mar
15


Rhett finally got his, only…. Nutmeg doesn’t want him. She was crying and hanging her head desperately through the fence for ECLIPSE. We separated her from Rhett again after she spent the day with him (and his needy efforts), and I’m thinking about wethering (neutering) Rhett. In a month, we’ll put Nutmeg with Eclipse, then we’ll know which one is the daddy by when she delivers.

Poor Rhett. He’s very tiny and the girls just don’t want him. They want Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome.

    Will Rhett not get any bigger? Maybe when he’s bigger they’ll respond better to him. Oh, don’t wether him too soon! Poor boy, never to know the taste of love.

    Rhett is the same age as Eclipse, but he’s much smaller.

    He’s a pretty little thing, but I think your plan is the only answer I can see if you are wanting to keep him.

    But with time, won’t Rhett be tall, handsome and FLASHY?

    My husband is a small guy, but I guess there’s just no telling goats. Poor Rhett!

    I won’t be very popular saying this but I think Rhett may not be all buck. He is not very masculine and you have to trust the girls.
    I bought a buck a few years ago that was small and cute and didn’t grow much. He acted like a buck but never got any of the buck characteristics. He liked the girls but they didn’t like him. A goat lady came over and said that while he was cute she thought he was a hermaphrodite. Well he was because none of the girls got pregnant. I bought a new buck and have no problems.
    I say don’t use him, just use Eclipse.

    NNNOOOOO!!!! Rhett is far to cute!!! I want to see little babies that look like him! There is clearly only one plan of action. More girls! This time girls that think Rhett is hot. (This is also a plot for me to live vicariously through you and to get more and more goats!!!!! :devil2: )

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
