It Runs in the Family

Nov
17

I’ve spent a lot of time recently going through photos from the past year. (Why? It’s a secret. I’ll share as soon as I can.) I take so many millions of pictures that many languish forever unused in the labrynth of photo files on my computer, forever left to the digital dust as farm life marches on and they are forgotten in favor of new adventures.


But when I happened on this series of photos taken last summer, I knew they had to come out and play.

This is, after all Clover’s sister. Can’t you tell?

Notice she has the same white half-moon on her side as Clover has, only she has one on both sides.

She looks exactly like Clover otherwise, though. See?

This is Clover’s sister.

This is Clover’s sister on cookies.

I hope she’s not hurting herself here.

“Cooookieeeeeeeee! I want MY COOOOKIEEEEEEE!!!!”

“WHERE IS MAH COOKIE?!”

Nom nom nom nom nom.




“I’M NOT DONE!!!!”

Yeah. Well. Sorry. Fifty cookies is your limit!

Or fifty-one. We can talk about fifty-one….

    Suzanne, you do realize that you have a children’s book almost ready for the publisher in your postings on Clover and the kids. You could title it something like “Clover, Honey, and Nutmeg meet Farmer Suzanne” or “Farmer Suzanne’s Life with Goats” or “Goats Rule”.

    Children’s picture book about goats? I’d buy it in a heartbeat! I can totally see Clover in a “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” type of series! ;)

    Ya…she looks like she’s hurting herself in some of these. I guess the cookie was worth it all.

    Are the cookies special goat cookies or are they regular people cookies? Just wondering.

    Lena, they’re actually animal cracker cookies, the ones that come in those big bags. Not that I don’t sometimes give them “real” cookies, LOL. But usually it’s animal crackers.

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....
