Yesterday, we went to the goat farm where we got Clover and Nutmeg….. And we came home with two bucks, Eclipse and Rhett. You know what that means, Clover?
Wait a minute. That’s not Clover.
That’s Cookie Doe, Clover’s sister. I’m always amazed by how much she looks like Clover. That’s Clover in the top photo here and Cookie Doe in the second and third. And again, this is Cookie Doe. (She is such a Clover look-alike!)
They’re identical twins except that Clover has a white half-moon on one side and Cookie Doe has the half-moon on both sides. Plus, Cookie Doe has more of a beard. Cookie Doe’s beard:
Clover: “My dear sister Cookie Doe, they make PRODUCTS for that, hon.”
I love seeing all their gorgeous goats over there…and Admiral, their Great Pyr. Admiral and his goaties tried to have a synchronistic portrait moment here.
I love this sweet creamy-white doe.
And this one.
Wait! That’s not a goat!
They have a new pony!
I couldn’t fit her in my pocket, though, so we had to leave her there.
But we took home two boys……
Everyone was fascinated.
She’ll get a closer look SOON.
SPRITE! Don’t look, you’re too young!
Poky: “What about me? When do I get a boyfriend?”
You don’t know Jack….. (You’re too young, too, Poky.)
As for the boys…. (Eclipse is the all black one. He and Rhett are the same age, though Rhett is much smaller.)
They’re still mostly hiding.
Rhett has some seriously pretty coloring.
And they both have blue eyes.
I’ll show them my cookies soon. And then…. Yes, then….. CLOVER.
I’m setting goals for you!!!! AM TOO. And do you SEE? I brought TWO BOYS to the dance for you.
I understand that you are too much woman for one man!
Clover: “Thank you, Woman. I see you can learn. Now tell them to fight over me and then I shall think about it.”
P.S. The dance begins soon. Stay tuned for all the romance! Goats are pregnant for five months. I WANT JUNE BABIES!
