Goat Jewelry and Size Comparisons


Not THAT jewelry!


Rotunda, aka Nutmeg, THEN:

And now, post-babies:

A tad rotund, as is her wont, but back to normal. For her.

Perhaps not surprisingly, since she IS La Rotunda, Nutmeg has some powerful genes. She gifts all of her babies with her “frosted ears” and her wattles.

Wattles are appendages of skin that dangle from a goat’s neck. Most goats don’t have them. Nutmeg’s mama (Clover) doesn’t have them. Her daddy didn’t have them (I’ve made his acquaintance), so she’s a throwback with a vengeance. Some people don’t like wattles and they actually cut them off when they’re babies. I love wattles! They are like goat jewelry.

Dr. Pepper’s wattles (and frosted ears):

New babies with wattles and frosted ears:

And they’re super cute, too.

In case you were wondering!
Clover: “But not as cute as me!”

    I hear Clover saying: “Mirror, mirror, on the wall who’s the fairest of them all?!” There is no doubt, she still holds the title.

  4. CindyP says:

    No, Clover, not as cute as you :happyflower:

  5. chickenherd says:

    Who could be as cute as Clover? Okay, don’t tell her but…those babies are pretty close competition. (shhh…)

  6. TinaBell says:

    Nutmeg looks much more…normal now. I’ll bet she is so relieved to have lessened her load, so to speak! The babies are adorable!

  7. Anita says:

    Sweet Nutmeg looks positively SLENDER now! :sun:

  8. Flowerpower says:

    Now Ms Rotunda AKA Nutmeg can get back into those jeans! All your goats are pretty and so are the babies. I never thought of goats having wattles but I cant see the reason to put them thru cutting those off. God must have wanted them to have em! :happyflower:

    They’re so cute. Nutmeg is looking very good for twins.

  10. MonkeyPhil says:

    Clover may not have Nutmeg’s jewelry, but apparently she does have access to someone jewelry box. And the good taste not to wear it all at once. The babies are wonderful. 😆

  11. Karo says:

    Clover has her own accessory – that adorable beard!

    I just read an article that made me think of you! The headline is: “Germans foiled by farmyard fugitive Yvonne the cow.” Yes, someone else’s unruly animal is making international news. Just don’t tell you-know-who. She might think it’s a dare!
