Every Time God Laughs, Another Goat Baby Is Born


I almost think these pictures don’t require any words, that words are just a blight upon their natural glory.

But you know I have to say something with all this cuteness in front of me.

They are adorable! They are like little dolls! You look at them and think, “Are they stuffed? Because nothing in real life can be THAT CUTE!!!!”

I love how they cavort. And frolic. And clamber.

Okay, they weren’t clambering when I was watching, but next to frolic and cavort, clamber is my favorite word. I like shall and shan’t, too. Don’t you think shan’t needs to make a comeback? I shan’t do anything but watch baby goats frolic and cavort once I have my own! That makes me feel very Scarlett O’Hara-ish and I think I’m going to make a mint julep and cut my drapes into dresses now. (I don’t have any drapes.)

I think I am drunk on baby goats.

I want some!!

They are buckling-heavy in the births at the goat farm this year. If they don’t have enough doelings, I might not get my babies. I shan’t like that at all!!!

There are just a few more mamas left to give birth.

Come on, pretty mamas, have my babies! (Think pink!)

Eeek!!! It’s a good thing this one isn’t preggers. It’s the psycho goat!

There’s always one in every crowd, isn’t there?

“Prepare to die.”

    Baby goats are sooo cute! That psycho goat is pretty scary, don’t let it near Spartacus, he might get some new ideas for planning his take over of the roost!

  2. Mental P Mama says:

    Oh great. Now I need to get a baby goat… :sheepjump:

  3. Kim A. says:

    Cute and adorable don’t even come close to describing them! I hope you get your baby goats too — I want more pictures. πŸ™‚

    Have a great weekend, everyone!

  4. Shirley says:

    The baby goat pictures are adorable. You just want to pick them up and cuddle with them.

    I can just hear Scarlett say, ‘I shan’t go to the party at Twelve Oaks unless I can have a baby goat’.

  5. kacey says:

    Wow, that IS a lot of cuteness. Okay, I’ll think pink thoughts for you! :yes:

  6. Cheryl S. says:

    Aww, I want the little black and white goat. Soooo cute! What are baby goats called, anyway?

  7. Tina L says:

    Very cute baby goats.

  8. Stacia says:

    I’ve wanted goats since I was in high school. I am so jealous because they are soooooooo cute! And my husband wants chickens. Maybe we should just come and visit!

  9. Kristen says:

    They are so adorable…almost makes me want to get goats again. But then I remembered how they always got out of the fence and ate all of my pretty flowers and vegetables. They are really cute though. :mrgreen:

  10. Suzanne McMinn says:

    Cheryl, baby goats are called kids in general, and if they are males, they are bucklings, if they are females, doelings.

  11. Blaze says:

    I can honestly say I’ve never thought of a goat as cute.

    Just not an animal I would consider falling into the cute family. But when they are baby’s..well okay they are kinda on the cute side heh.

    Hope you get some though!

  12. Robin G. says:

    That’s a borderline illegal level of cute.

  13. Fannie M Wiggins says:

    The baby goats sure are cute. I hope you get your babies. Just keep thinking PINK!!! It works. :yes: My daughter has 4 boys. They wanted a girl this time. My prayer circle at church started praying as soon as we knew she was pregnant. She had her ultrasound a couple of weeks ago and “It’s a GIRL” :flying: so think positively. Have a great day and :hug: to all.

  14. Ann from Montana says:

    They are so sweet and cute! Hope you get your does!

  15. Sharon Elkins says:

    That psycho goat is pretty scary for sure. Think Pink!!!

  16. Beckynsc says:

    Those babies are so cute!
    The pictures are great.
    Princess acts as if she’s in heaven with all these critters to take care of, hold, love on…
    Did she have any critters when you lived in the city?

  17. Blessed says:

    Some friends of ours have miniature goats – they stay small and cute! These are awesome pictures

  18. Jillybean says:

    They are so cute! Of course the last one looks scary

  19. DragonLady says:

    Your pictures speak for themselves. The babies are beautiful. May your baby goat wishes come true!

  20. Remudamom says:

    Besides cavorting, they “boing”. Instead of just walking or running they go boing, boing boing when their feet touch the ground.

  21. Suzanne McMinn says:

    Becky, we’ve always had cats and dogs!

  22. Kathryn says:

    What a lovely thing to see first thing this morning. I have been grappling for days with a balkish router that would let me get to about four sites, none of which I wanted, and ignored all cajoling, tears, threats, and ancient curses.

    Those babies are just as you described. I think they look like little toys. Thank you for bringing that bit of sunshine here on a rainy morning.

  23. Heidi says:

    My favorite part about baby goats is when they are getting a little ‘titty’ as my 3 year old says. πŸ™‚ They are SO cute Sue – if you let them run around your yard they will be on the pie porch for sure!! Looking in the windows… πŸ™‚

  24. Wendy says:

    You like goats? Come see my Nigerians. https://lifebeyondthesidewalks.blogspot.com I hope you get your doelings this year. It is hard to wait. I have heard that a sign of intellegence is the delay of gratification. So you are being tested.
    I like the carmel colored ones. I don’t have that look here.

  25. Karen B says:

    :heart: those babies!

  26. Diane says:

    Those little kiddos are adorable, but aren’t all baby animals? I love me some snuggly baby critters. By the way, I think you should build a hutch and get some flop-eared bunnies. Talk about cute! I bet princess would like them too. Ah, but I guess you can think about that tomorrow, just like Scarlett.

  27. Shimmy Mom says:

    baby goats are too cute. I want some too but we don’t have quite enough property to add any more animals to the mix.

  28. Employee No. 3699 says:

    Said in a whiney Veruca Salt voice (Willie Wonka), “I want a baby goat. I want a baby goat Now!”

    Unfortunately, my suburban neighbors wouldn’t allow it. So I’ll just keep peekin’ in on you to get my fill of the good life!

    Have a wonderful weekend.


  29. TeresaH says:

    They are so cute! You are lucky you live where you can have all the animals…and I shan’t get jealous! πŸ˜†

  30. Karen Erickson says:

    Awww they are so precious. I’m jealous – I want goats! LOL


  31. Crystal B. says:

    They are so cute. πŸ™‚

  32. Jodie says:

    :snoopy: The baby goats are sweet, funny and quite adorable. Good luck with getting your “little girl” kids this year. :elephant: Thinking pink!

  33. Donna says:

    Ohhhh, I want one too! They are so cute!!!! I LOVE that little one with his head down, looking like he is ready to butt heads! I would NEVER get anything done, with all those farm animals around me, because I would want to sit all day and hold them and kiss on them and hug them and play!!!!! :sheepjump: :mrgreen: :sheepjump: :sheepjump: :snoopy:

  34. Christine says:

    Oh you’re killing me with the pictures. I want my own soooo bad. If we could just win the lotto and hire someone to build a pen for them…

  35. jean says:

    That last photo of the chicken just kills me. It is such a great photo.

  36. catslady says:

    Babies – gotta love them, no matter what they are. I love the black and white one that Princess is holding. And we must all love baby goats since KIDS is what we call our children :rotfl:

  37. Estella says:

    Baby goats are almost as cute as baby chicks!

  38. Brandy says:

    My Uncles raises goats and they are SO cute. Just as are these. Thanks for sharing the pictures. *G*

  39. IowaCowgirl says:

    Capricious! Of course as dogs are canines and cats are felines, goats are caprines; hence the terms caprice, capriole in the dressage world….Goats are SO influential!

    And the god Pan was goat-like…hence the terms pandemonium and panic!!!

  40. Maureen says:

    They are adorable. I hope you get your girls soon.

  41. Susan says:

    They are sooo cute! Lets be thankful Spartacus and psycho goat can’t breed with each other. πŸ˜†

  42. Tori Lennox says:

    They are soooooo cute!!!!!

  43. Carolyn A. says:

    I just love it when Spartacus has the last word. I just bust out laughing. Baby goats … so cute … hope you get your doelings … even if they’re from the psycho goat. Let’s just hope they don’t come out with those eyes. *shudder* xxoo

  44. Kathleen in MI says:

    I was wondering what you were going to do if there were no girls. That doesn’t seem very likely ‘tho. I’m sure you will get your girls.

    Girl goats are grand!

  45. Lexi Connor says:

    LOL! Yes, they are cute, but now I know you’re crazy!

  46. Linda in San Diego says:

    Something is strange – pictures are great of course – your calendar is missing and the RSS feed has not put this post on my iGoogle page. But glad I found it!

    I love that dog!

  47. Kaye says:

    I think I’m in love with the little black and white goat!

    I say “shan’t” every now and then. My kids think it’s funny.

  48. Michelle says:

    The baby goats are so cute! I love them! They’re always the first thing I look at when we have our state fair!

    Hi Ms. McMinn! You’re site is very creative and the pictures are amazing. I was cleaning my room and came across the business card you wrote someone’s number on and decided that it’d probably be pretty awesome — which it is. I also thought I’d ask how the Writer’s Convention went — So how did the Writer’s Convention go?

    x-Selena. :bananadance:
