Fanta Has Babies!


Yesterday was a completely normal day. Unlike Nutmeg, who holed up in the goat house early in the day before giving birth, Fanta hung out with her friends all day. They watched a couple movies and did their nails. She had dinner with everyone.

Then she went into the goat pen and quietly popped out two little bottle caps.

No screaming and yelling or anything.

We knew there were babies when we heard the sound of tiny bleating–and it wasn’t coming from the goat house!

This one is all black, a miniature replica of mommy.

This one is brown with black booties, black around the eyes, a black stripe down the back, and a black underbelly.

And THEY’RE BOTH GIRLS!! (Yes, we’re sure.)

Nutmeg’s upset about sharing the maternity ward. She’s been hiding in the dog house ever since Fanta and her babies moved in.

She won’t let Dr. Pepper go out to play.

Dr. Pepper: “Please, mommy, please, let me play with them!”

Fanta: “Some girls are such drama queens. She’s a screamer, you know.”

Meanwhile, Sprite is still….. Sprite. No news yet.

Mr. Pibb isn’t sure she’s pregnant. What if he did the job wrong?

Mr. Pibb: “I’ll keep trying!

    What a perfect way to while away the winter days, playing with all the babies! Congratulations!

  2. Amanda says:

    Mr. Pibb was definately having some fun. Lol! The babies are sooooo cute!

  3. Kara Lennox says:

    OMG, love baby goats. I used to have pet goats, they are fun critters, and they do have very strong and distinct personalities.

  4. Yvonne says:

    Yay, Girls, FINALLY! :heart: I’m so glad they have all been born healthy and with no problems for the momma’s. This has been such a joy for me. :snoopy: Nutmeg and Fanta delivered exactly a week apart, didn’t they? Maybe Sprite will go next Sunday! Nutmeg is being very protective.

  5. Sheila says:

    They are so adorable 🙂

  6. glenda says:

    At this rate, you may have to enlarge the goat barn!

    They are such cuties!

  7. Deanna says:

    Mr. Pibb has been a very busy boy! 🙂

  8. bonita says:

    Is Nutmeg usually a drama queen? After all, Dr. Pepper was folded up sort of funny. Maybe she really was having some problems?:)

  9. Linda Segerson says:

    Wow…such excitement! :snoopy:

  10. SarahGrace says:

    More kids! :snoopy: Congratulations!

  11. Urbanite says:

    Mr. Pibb cracks me up. But I wouldn’t say that Nutmeg was necessarily a drama queen. Apparently Dr. Pepper’s front legs weren’t in the correct position, so maybe it really was a more difficult, painful delivery. Come on, Fanta, remember that you and Sprite spend your time together memorizing Bible verses and praying for Clover. So be kind! (And if you can’t be kind, don’t allow yourself to be quoted in a public forum. Heh heh.)

  12. Johanna says:

    Congrats! So glad to see girlie goats! Are there names yet? Still soda? Crush??? Cokie???

  13. Grammie Earth says:

    Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh :happyfeet: SWEET!

  14. catslady says:

    Awwww how nice. Can’t wait to hear what you’re going to call them.

  15. BethieofVA says:

    Adorable!! Okay, how about Fresca and Tab? or Shasta and Squirt?

  16. VaGirl2 says:

    or Sierra Miss! (Miss instead of Mist) hehee…

  17. Yvonne says:

    Fanta’s expression….she looks a little annoyed!

  18. Angie M says:

    Congrats on the new cuties 🙂

  19. pam from ohio says:

    Congratulations on the newest babies. This is the most excitement we’ve had since New Year’s! They are all beautiful little ones. And the mamas are so proud and protective…

  20. Nancy in Iowa says:

    So many babies, so little time to hold and cuddle every one of them! I’m still curious about Clover’s kids – what do they think of the new babies?

  21. CindyP says:

    Girls :snoopy: Finally! Congratulations, Fanta, on your 2 beautiful girls!

  22. SophannE says:

    nehi (or kneehi) gets my vote for a name!

  23. Shelly Messier says:

    Unbelievable!!! Didn’t expect that so soon! You are one luck farm gal!!! I am so happy for you. You have the best farm animals ever!!! :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave:

  24. ticka1 says:

    More babies to add to the CITR farm! They are adorable! You going to have to get a bigger farm soon!!!

  25. lauren says:

    Goody Goody!! more babies for me to come and look at for my goat fix! LOL

  26. windspiritwhimsies says:

    Congratulations on the new babies! WTG Fanta! :heart:

  27. Ramona says:

    All the babies are adorable.

  28. whaledancer says:

    Congratulations! I’m glad Dr Pepper will have some kids his own age to play with (if Nutmeg ever lets him out). I think Nutmeg’s smart to hide out for a bit, until she determines how protective Fanta’s going to be of her babies.

  29. Maura says:

    WOOOOHOOOO! I missed this one yesterday so please except my belated CONGRATULATIONS. Wow things are really starting to happen around the’s like SPRING in JANUARY around there. Two down one more to go? Looking forward to seeing that Sprite has safely delivered too. Enjoy your new additions! Chic :hungry2:

  30. Lisa Anderson says:

    I’m loving these baby darn cute !!! :snoopy:

  31. Tovah says:

    I don’t know how you get anything done with those cute babies all over. I would totally just be in the yard staring at them:)

  32. lavenderblue says:

    If there is anything cuter than a baby goat, I don’t know what it is. It even takes some baby babies a while to “cuten-up”, but your little guys are just born irresistibly cute. Congratulations!
