A goat who escaped the Stringtown Rising Farm barnyard in West Virginia led a farmer on a slow-speed chase Wednesday. The farmer attempted to stop Nutmeg, age 1, at the corner of the porch steps and the side lawn, according to a report released early Thursday morning. Nutmeg was serving a life sentence in the Stringtown Rising Farm facility after being purchased for breeding and milking purposes.


The farmer says Nutmeg escaped on hoof then led her on a slow-speed chase throughout the side lawn at speeds of up to two or three yards a minute.

    At least goats don’t run very fast when they escape. I love your pictures of the pasture–so green and vibrant. I am ready for the day now.

    I can’t believe that sweet innocent looking face could do anything quite so unlawful. But then you did say cookies may have been involved!
    What a wonderful way to start the day. Thank you!

    Suzanne, I remember reading in one of your posts about meeting 52. He said he likes the way you think. He’s not the only one. You are a hoot! You have a gift for prying off the cover of everyday situations and exposing the unseen humor underneath for all of us to enjoy.
    Thank you for brightening my mornings. :sun:

    Oh, please, Suzanne, expunge her record! She is a minor – can you release her to my custody? Oh, wait, I live in an apt. Well, just keep those cookies handy!!! Now, where’s a goat icon when you need one? :dancingmonster:

    I’ll represent Nutmeg if this goes to trial. Pooping on the steps could be considered criminal dumpage on property!! :lol:

    This reminds me of the daily escapes of my goat, Serenia. I lived in a chain-link fenced yard. The WHOLE yard was fenced, including the only area to park the car. The gate was a double one that you had to open both sided of to get the car out of the yard. So every morning when I tried to go to work, she would escape. I learned to keep her morning bucket of feed for AFTER I got the car into the street and went back to close the gate. I’d just bang on the bucket and call her. Hey, with food involved she’d come running right to me. And then I RAN to get the gate closed! Had to reverse the procedure each evening when I got home. That was 20+ years ago and I had forgotten all about it until you posted your pictures. Thanks for reviving the memory!

    We are masters of escape. Bwahahahahaha!
    The love of my life, Luke, escapes daily to come visit me by my pen.
    the publicist won’t let him in to rhumba with me just yet. Drat.

    Two or three yards a minute??? I shudder to think of the danger to innocent bystanders while the authorities chase a felonious farm animal at such high speeds!

    Also? I loved this post!

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....
