Busy Baby


He’s full of pep, our Dr. Pepper.

He’s discovered the shelf in the goat house. He runs and bounces and bounces and leaps. I feel sorry for him sometimes because he’s a singlet. See Sailor and Pirate playing on the shelf in the goat house in the video here.

But Dr. Pepper doesn’t let his single child status interfere with his fun. He is a busy baby! Mommy can hardly keep up with him.

Nutmeg: “What have I done? I’VE CREATED A MONSTER.”

“I could use a cookie. That would help.”

Luckily, there are always a few peaceful moments for Mommy.

Then he’s leaping and twirling again.

Update on Fanta and Sprite:

Sprite still looks like this.

And Fanta (in an unladylike moment where you can see her full udder) looks like this.

And Mr. Pibb?

He still looks mighty proud.

    You need to make some cigar shaped cookies so that Mr. Pibb (the proud papa) can pass them around to the Stringtown Rising Farm animals.

  2. Lindsay says:

    Okay so, I’m gonna be revealing my ignorance here, but: what is the thing Fanta is licking/investigating above her udder?

    Little Dr. Pepper is darling btw.

  3. Nona says:

    Looks like you may have more real soon again fun times on the farm!

  4. Nancy in Iowa says:

    When does young Dr. Pibb get to meet his, uh, young uncles?

  5. Gem says:

    Sprite looks like she has ‘dropped’, as they say! Keep a close watch on that one ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just imagine the fun all of the (now upcoming) babies will have when the arrive. I’m excited, makes me want goats and I have NO business with goats (more to do). I’m getting 5 bull calves and another dairy cow Thursday.
    I love those little ones, Cuties! :dancingmonster:

  7. JOJO says:

    I love the photo of Dr. Pepper walking on the board–he looks like a model with tall boots on struting his stuff! He is so adorable, It’s a good thing he isnt here, I would never get anything done! :airkiss: :hug:

  8. Tanya Miller says:

    How CUTE that lil Dr. Pepper is!!! Can you post some information about “how” to raise goats??? I would love to have goats but I know nothing about them or anything about raising them… and there are no good blogs about them!!! I have chickens and have learned alot from you and this blog but I have a high need for a “cookie eating” beast!!! Thanks in advance!! :sheepjump: :sheepjump: :sheepjump:

    Awww, lovin the little Dr. Pepper!!! It doesnt look like it will be to long before Auntie gives him some cousins to play with ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lindsay I believe those are her lady bits ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. texwisgirl says:

    He’s adorable. I watched the video from a prior year. I don’t know how you manage to get anything done around there. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I believe that the way Fantas’ “lady bits” and utter are swolen, she will give you a baby within the next two days. Good luck with the ‘crib’ barn.

  12. jan~n~tn says:

    Fanya is holding off to see if you will let her in to the birthing room. Fanta: A little privacy here please.

  13. Brenda E says:

    I love Nutmeg – she always looks like she’s smiling. And that baby is too darn cute. Soon he will have some playmates I’ll bet. Oh my goodness – more names to come up with.

  14. Maura says:

    Seeing the video and these photo’s makes me want goats even more…this little fellow is so cute! Chic :hungry2:

  15. Heidi says:

    Fanta is looking like she will go any day now.

  16. Miss Becky says:

    So the other females are pregnant also? Oh boy, more fun on the way. I love this. And Dr. Pepper is so adorable. I love that he entertains himself. He looks like he has frosting on his ears. :heart:

  17. Urbanite says:

    I keep coming back again and again to look at Dr. Pepper. His coat is gorgeous and he is so full of energy and enthusiasm! I made everyone at work watch the video of him bouncing around (the top charity we support is Heifer International, so the boss was OK with taking work time for that). Everyone agreed that Dr. Pepper is the cutest kid ever.

  18. Urbanite says:

    I should add that Clover is still my favorite, though. I admire her attitude.

  19. Lynne says:

    Wow, I just can’t believe how active they are right after they are born! He looks like his daddy.

  20. Linda Segerson says:

    2nd time around…..my previous post did not show up????
    I am with Tanya…..I would love to have goats but I do not know anything about them. I will be checking out your goat archives and maybe I will learn something about them. You do such a good job and I think its about time for some fresh cookies. :yes:

    Sorry Suzanne if the first post happens to show up too after I re-post! ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

  21. Jen in ID says:

    Dr. Pepper is so darn cute!! Mind you, I know nothing about goats LOL but it sure looks like there could be more baby goats on the farm today from Fanta!! Congrats! :snoopy:

  22. Carmen at Old House Kitchen says:
