Before we bring our own goaties home, we wanted to take Coco to the goat farm to visit the mamas and babies. I said, “Look, Coco! Goats! You will love them and play with them and protect them with your life.”
Coco reacted with the same immediate enthusiasm she had for stairs.
She bounced off to talk to their chickens. She knows about chickens. She has some of them.
“Coco, come back!”
“You can do it, Coco. You were so brave just the other day.”
“See how pretty the babies are? So sweet and adorable?”
Coco sniffed a little bitty baby with great caution. “It’s okay, Coco,” I told her. “Look what innocent cherubs they are, fresh from God’s arms.”
“They bounce, Coco. Just like you.”
“See how they romp and frolic and clamber?”
“See how they– What are they doing? They’re too young for– Oh, no. No!”
“Don’t look, Coco! Don’t look!”

On July 9, 2008 at 7:49 am
Hahaha! That is too funny. Well, I have to know, did Coco ever get used to the goas? And when will you be bringing them home?
On July 9, 2008 at 8:09 am

Hilarious! Thanks for the early laugh.
On July 9, 2008 at 8:19 am
I love starting the day off with cute pictures of goats, and big laughs to said goat shananagins!
On July 9, 2008 at 8:22 am
LOL, well, goats will be goats.. Poor innocent COCO seeing such…nature shots.

Ahhh, life on a farm 😆 It certainly exposes you to some of the randier sides of nature :rotfl: Poor Coco – such an early age for that visual 😮 Thanks Suzanne!! We love reading your stories, every day filled with laughter and family.
On July 9, 2008 at 8:46 am
TYVM for the morning thrill!!! Just another day in paradise!
On July 9, 2008 at 8:57 am
Oh the innocence! Baby goats are sooo cute! Coco is in for a lot of work between the chicken and the goats. Which will be battling for her attention? Probably neither! More like, “keep your distance!”

My first smile of the day!
On July 9, 2008 at 9:20 am
What a hoot! With that kind of attitude, how is it the world is not totally overrun with little goats? Look at how the other goats are watching. Pervs!
On July 9, 2008 at 9:22 am
I guess one is never to young.

Absolutely hilarious!!! What a great way to start my day. Coco is getting way ahead of herself in her education I think.

Should I ask if Princess needs a blindfold as well as Coco?
On July 9, 2008 at 10:05 am
LOL That was funny!
That Coco! She is so adorable..that is so cute of 52 (????) holding the baby goat and Coco getting to know it. Adorable!
The chickens are funny on the food trough! Some of them are so pretty – I love the colors!
Between the critters and 52 and Princess and the boys, there sure is alot of fun to be had, each day!
On July 9, 2008 at 10:06 am
Oh well, you can’t protect them forever. Coco would’ve probably seen it on tv or learned about it on the school bus anyway.
On July 9, 2008 at 10:09 am
:rotfl: yes Suzanne you make my day thank you
I love comming to your site
On July 9, 2008 at 10:18 am

On July 9, 2008 at 11:15 am
I’m sure Coco closed her eyes, gritted her puppy teeth and thought, “…think of England…”.
On July 9, 2008 at 11:18 am
I LOVE A GOOD LAUGH IN THE MORNING!
On July 9, 2008 at 11:25 am
I want one of those cute carmel colored ones. Are you getting a cute carmel colored one? I would name it……….hmmmmm……….Carmel.
On July 9, 2008 at 11:46 am
Maybe it’s caramel.
On July 9, 2008 at 11:47 am

How Funny is that!… My friend called me from Tennessee just to ask if I had read your blog yet. So I went straight to my computer to read it. Thanks for making us Both laugh today!

Robin G. says:
LOL! Okay, that’s hysterical. Way to teach Coco about the birds and the bees — or the goat and the goat, as the case may be.
On July 9, 2008 at 1:42 pm
Practice makes perfect and baby goats :rotfl:
On July 9, 2008 at 2:55 pm
I really enjoy this slice of your life every day.

Oh yeah. We have a neighbor with goats, so we know all about that kind of behavior! :shocked: 😮
On July 9, 2008 at 5:29 pm
I guess we know why the goats are smiling?!!
On July 9, 2008 at 6:34 pm
I guess I was wrong, guessing that was 52 (above) – because I thought you would laugh…you didn’t. LOL So, I guess it was not him!

Suzanne McMinn says:
I’m sorry, Donna, yes, that was 52 holding the baby! I was away from the computer today. 😆
On July 9, 2008 at 6:49 pm
Don’t look Coco! LOL And Coco, with the tongue always hanging out. Funny stuff!
