Turns Out, She Was Just Fat

Jan
9


Dateline: Stringtown Rising Farm, West Virginia

A two-and-a-half-year-old Nigerian Dwarf doe named Nutmeg gave birth to a kid late Sunday on a farm in Roane County. Based on her girth, Nutmeg, known on the streets as Rotunda, is believed to have been pregnant for nearly two years, and was expected to deliver ten or twelve kids. Sources close to the goat suggested the mythical ballooning of her figure was all a ploy for sympathy and treats. The rumored father, Mr. Pibb, was seen passing out cookie cigars. Clover, a family spokesperson, stated that she was told by an unnamed Woman that the kid was a girl.

“The Woman isn’t known for identifying sex correctly,” stated Clover. “I wouldn’t depend on her.”

She kicked another goat who called her grandma and made off with the remaining cookie cigars.

Nutmeg, who at presstime was resting peacefully in the goat house nursery with her kid, had no comment on the accusations involving the ballooning of her figure or the behavior of her mother.

More pictures and VIDEO OF THE BIRTH tomorrow!

    Can’t wait to see the video. I’m going to breed my Nigerian Dwarf does next fall and am anxious to see what the birth process is like. We’re already very familiar with the process of getting fat.

    Your goats given to birthing at sundown?

    May I respectfully, if you do not already have a name, submit Macy, based on the
    relationship between nutmeg and mace?

    Suggestion for a name “Ginger Ale” that way both parents are named as Nutmeg is a spice and Mr Pibbs is a soda :)

    HUGS to all and congrats!

    Kim! I had that same idea this morning. Ginger Ale!

    Ginger Ale is just the cutest name. Macy is cute, too, but if she turns out to be as round as her mama, the other kids will tease her about being a Macy’s parade balloon!

    My well-fed girth has on occasion been mistaken for someone with child. Luckily, no rabbits died for the cause. Congrats on your baby!

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....
