It Runs in the Family


I’ve spent a lot of time recently going through photos from the past year. (Why? It’s a secret. I’ll share as soon as I can.) I take so many millions of pictures that many languish forever unused in the labrynth of photo files on my computer, forever left to the digital dust as farm life marches on and they are forgotten in favor of new adventures.

But when I happened on this series of photos taken last summer, I knew they had to come out and play.

This is, after all Clover’s sister. Can’t you tell?

Notice she has the same white half-moon on her side as Clover has, only she has one on both sides.

She looks exactly like Clover otherwise, though. See?

This is Clover’s sister.

This is Clover’s sister on cookies.

I hope she’s not hurting herself here.

“Cooookieeeeeeeee! I want MY COOOOKIEEEEEEE!!!!”


Nom nom nom nom nom.

“I’M NOT DONE!!!!”

Yeah. Well. Sorry. Fifty cookies is your limit!

Or fifty-one. We can talk about fifty-one….

  3. Patty says:

    LOL Those goats weren’t spoiled or anything were they? HAHA!

  4. Becky says:

    Clover’s sister is as cute as Clover.
    Love the series of pictures.

    Suzanne, you do realize that you have a children’s book almost ready for the publisher in your postings on Clover and the kids. You could title it something like “Clover, Honey, and Nutmeg meet Farmer Suzanne” or “Farmer Suzanne’s Life with Goats” or “Goats Rule”.

  6. beth says:

    Children’s picture book about goats? I’d buy it in a heartbeat! I can totally see Clover in a “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” type of series! 😉

  7. FringeGirl says:

    Ya…she looks like she’s hurting herself in some of these. I guess the cookie was worth it all.

  8. Lena says:

    Are the cookies special goat cookies or are they regular people cookies? Just wondering.

  9. Suzanne McMinn says:

    Lena, they’re actually animal cracker cookies, the ones that come in those big bags. Not that I don’t sometimes give them “real” cookies, LOL. But usually it’s animal crackers.

  10. Amy says:

    It really does run in the family….

  11. TeresaH says:

    Let’s bypass 51 and hear more about 52! LOL

    Yeah I can see the kids book now…Clover and the mystery of the disappearing cookies…or Clover and the mystery of the escaping kids…or…Clover meets the giant puppy…or Clover chants No Cookies No Milk…Clover takes on Farmer Suzanne…

    There’s a whole series of kids books! (I’d read them!)

    What’s Auntie Goat’s name? Boy, when that family wants cookies you’d better hand them over or run! Thanks for the morning grins – again! :catmeow:

    :shimmy: Children’s books! Children’s books! Please….. :hissyfit:

  14. Jo Lynn says:

    I was wondering what kind of cookies too. I can imagine you buying 50lb of goat cookies at the feed store each week!

  15. Leah says:

    Jeez, what time do you people get up? JK The goats are very pretty.Waitin for pictures of sheep.

  16. Brandy says:

    Gee, those goats aren’t spoiled at all! *G*

  17. Jodie says:

    Goats. Who knew that they could be so cute?

  18. Susan says:

    Clover and her sister have more than their looks in common! 😆
