Coco Meets the Goats


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!”

  7. Jyl says:

  8. MARY says:

  9. Mental P Mama says:

    I swear those goats were smiling. What a happy adventure!

  10. DRAGONLADY says:

    Hilarious! Thanks for the early laugh.

  11. Stacia says:

    I love starting the day off with cute pictures of goats, and big laughs to said goat shananagins!

  12. kacey says:

    LOL, well, goats will be goats.. :mrgreen: Poor innocent COCO seeing such…nature shots.

  13. Debbie in Memphis says:

    Ahhh, life on a farm ๐Ÿ˜† It certainly exposes you to some of the randier sides of nature :rotfl: Poor Coco – such an early age for that visual ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Thanks Suzanne!! We love reading your stories, every day filled with laughter and family.

  14. JaneSmith,(yes,really) says:

    TYVM for the morning thrill!!! Just another day in paradise!

  15. happyathome says:

    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!”

  16. Jill S. says:

    My first smile of the day!

  17. Suzette says:

    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!

  18. emg says:

    I guess one is never to young.

  19. Shari C says:

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

  20. Amy Addison says:

    :rotfl: :rotfl:

    OMG, that is tooooo funny. ::wipes tears from eyes:: What an education for Coco.

  21. Sharon Elkins says:

    This is sex education 101. Man you’re going to be very busy soon.

  22. Amy says:

    Should I ask if Princess needs a blindfold as well as Coco?

  23. Donna says:

    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!

  24. Diane says:

    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.

  25. sunshine says:

    :rotfl: yes Suzanne you make my day thank you
    I love comming to your site

  26. Treasia says:

    Nothing like getting a small piece early in the morning. :rotfl: You totally cracked me up. Don’t look Cocoa. Or Ethel.

  27. Claudia W says:

    That has got to be the best way to start a day out…Laughing really hard at the cute little baby goats and your writing! Thank you SO much!

  28. sassy says:

    Haha, i have a puppy who does that, he LOVES his blanket.

    What a cute pup and the baby goats are adorable!

    I enjoy reading your farm blog

  29. Crystal B. says:

    My goodness. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  30. Tori Lennox says:

    LOL! Poor Coco, she’s really not sure about those goats, is she?

  31. IowaCowgirl says:

    I’m sure Coco closed her eyes, gritted her puppy teeth and thought, “…think of England…”.

  32. Katharina says:


  33. Wendy says:

    I want one of those cute carmel colored ones. Are you getting a cute carmel colored one? I would name it……….hmmmmm……….Carmel.

  34. Christine says:

    I never knew that a baby goat could be sooooo cute

  35. Shimmy Mom says:

    LOL looks like Coco will get an earlier “Birds and the Bees” talk than you thought.

  36. Susan says:

    Too late, Coco already got an eyeful! LOL

  37. Karen in DE says:

    I love the kid up there in the middle, the one with the black “boots!”

  38. Jodie says:

    giggle… embarassed giggle… i’m at work… no animal porn allowed… giggle

  39. TeresaH says:

    I think Spartacus put those kids up to that just to embarrass coco. :snoopy: :chicken:

  40. Michelle Mullins says:

    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!

  41. 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.

  42. catslady says:

    Practice makes perfect and baby goats :rotfl:

  43. Estella says:

    Too funny!
    I really enjoy this slice of your life every day.

  44. Brandy says:

    OMGosh! I don’t think Coco is ready for “the Talk” yet. *G*

  45. Jennifer Robin says:

    Oh yeah. We have a neighbor with goats, so we know all about that kind of behavior! :shocked: ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  46. Shelley says:

    I guess we know why the goats are smiling?!!

  47. Donna says:

    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! :mrgreen:

  48. Suzanne McMinn says:

    I’m sorry, Donna, yes, that was 52 holding the baby! I was away from the computer today. ๐Ÿ˜†

  49. Kim says:

    Don’t look Coco! LOL And Coco, with the tongue always hanging out. Funny stuff!
