In Search of Mama


Honey is such a shy, quiet, demure little wether, overpowered by bossy Clover and primadonna Nutmeg.

He’s not as loud as Nutmeg, but he misses mama, too.

Honey: “Are you a goat?”
“Do you want to be my new mother?”
“Do you like to butt heads, mommy?”
Can I kiss you?
“Can I eat your horn?”
“I love you SO MUCH, MOMMY!”
Miss Jacob: “Make it stop.”

The March newsletter went out yesterday. Did you miss it? Be sure to sign up for the next one!

    Ha,ha! Miss Jacob does look like a goat after being sheared. She can be nutmeg and honey’s granny! :pinkbunny:

  2. Patty says:

    Oh that’s so adorable!!! Tell Princess Way to Go on doing her own room! Mine won’t even keep theirs clean!

  3. CindyP says:

    Awww, Honey, it’ll be ok…….Momma will be home soon, and you will have some little ones soon to be dominate over!

    Miss Jacob seems to tolerate her, tho, that’s a good thing!!

    How much longer must we all suffer without Clover?
    When is she coming home? We all miss her? 😥

  12. Kathryn says:

    Dear Princess,
    Please do not lie in bed and throw darts over your head. I know I am being bossy, but that is just the way I am sometimes. I love your “new” room! It looks great. Congratulations on a job well done.

    Suzanne, I did get the newsletter, and have enjoyed it immensely. What a fun read! I am sorry about the not-so-goods, and am wondering if you found your mixer.

    You are right: Honey is a sweetie-pie. Please give him an ear scritch from me.

    It is going to be warm today, and I am spending it outside cursing the moles and working in the gardens!

  13. Nancy in Atlanta says:

    Princess Morgan – I love the room! Good job.

    Honey – stop pestering Miss Jacob; your Mommy will be home soon. She’s just having a little, uh, vacation at the goat spa.

    Miss Jacob – please let poor Honey love on you for now, or the Giant Puppy will have to step in!!!

  14. Melissa Marsh says:

    Suzanne, you just put a great big smile on my face. Thank you! Love these pictures.

  15. Linda says:

    Poor little Honey. How long before his momma comes back? I think Miss Jacob is strange looking.
    Love the newsletter. Can’t wait for the wool posts.

  16. generic says:

    I’ll loan you my mixer—–if I can find it.

  17. jean says:

    Giggle! I love when the animals talk. And the last picture says it all. Great job.

  18. Fencepost says:

    Cute post, Suzanne!
    Glad to see they are getting along. I guess they’re not so intimidating without all that wool. :sheep:

  19. Treasia/TruckersWife says:

    When is Clover coming home anyway?

  20. catslady says:

    Ack, ack, ack – I didn’t get a newsletter :hissyfit: I thought it was automatic 😕 I registered at your above link just now but I sure would like the first one :yes:

    Loved the pics and of course the remarks that came with it.

  21. jan-n-tn says:

    catslady and I were thinking that the newsletter came automatically.
    well, we were wrong. Not that it would be the first time for me.
    Morgan, Good job on your room- a little change in the scenery- or early spring-cleaning.
    Honey, don’t worry-mama will be home soon enough to scarf up on your cookie shares.
    We can’t help but feel for Miss Jacob-patience with the will be alright.
    Send in the Giant Puppy to the rescue..
    maybe not, since we all remember how clingy Coco has been in the past.

  22. feathrencox says:

    That was precious! Miss Jacob is being such a tolerant ewe! She’s proving to be a very wonderful MAMA! Speaking of which, are your sheep ever going to have BAAA-bies? How is Annabelle? Is she with them or still on the porch? This is like a soap opera but SO much better because animals are so much more fun! hehe! Have a great day!

  23. Brandy says:

    And she didn’t mind her horns being nibbled on? *g* Your pictures are too cute!

  24. Estella says:

    Cute post!
    The newsletter was great!

  25. Susan says:

    Loved your newsletter! When will Clover be back home? Her poor babies need her.

  26. catslady says:
