Heads in Hay


How many heads are in there?

And yes, that’s me using Clover’s milk stand for a hay rack. I’ve been too distracted by THE COW to milk the goat. However, I will have a second chance soon with a possibly more cooperative subject.

Nutmeg’s waddling more than usual. I suspect she’s going to have some babies in a couple of months. If she doesn’t blow up because she’s so fat already that I think she’s been pregnant for about two years.

    Ah, Nutmeg, you’ld best have a baby cow to get Woman’s attention. Since Glory Bee arrived we’ve heard precious little about Clover, Pirate, and Sailor. Not that Glory Bee isn’t cute…just sayin’

  2. Nona says:

    :chicken: we need pictures of how big she is! and Thanks again for all your

  3. CindyP says:

    The other babies, Sailor and Pirate, look just about as big as Clover…..it’s time for new babies! Yay Nutmeg!!

    it looks as though they’re wearing their winter coats already. Big and furry. :heart: :heart: :heart:

  5. Ann says:

    I tried counting I think there is 8 but probably more.
    I want pictures too of Nutmeg the wee Darling.
    I miss the Goat adventures…. 😀

    I counted 6, but I’m willing to be wrong. 🙂

    What’cha gonna go with all those babies?

  7. Ramona says:

    Aw, you make me want a goat. And a cow…..

  8. texwisgirl says:

    I counted 6 too but am probably wrong. 🙂

    Oh little fat Nutmeg! Maybe you’ll FINALLY have a chance to lose that pre-baby weight you’ve been carrying! What a sweetie!

    It’s about time Nutmeg got serious about something. That makes Clover a grandmother. Does Clover know that?

    I count seven. How many babies can a goat have at one time?
    Just wondering.

  11. Rhea says:

    I think I count seven heads. Maybe. I love the close-up of Nutmeg. I remember having goats on the ranch I grew up on, and they always tried to eat my hair and climb trees. Crazy goats. Jeffrey and Pierre.

  12. Dee says:

    adorable! I love the name of nutmeg!

  13. Emma Filbrun says:

    Goats can have four at a time–our neighbors had a set of quads a month ago. The last-born died, but the rest are fine.

    I know how Nutmeg must have flet…when I was pregnant with my first, I reached “Shamoo” status rather quickly. There was a good natured guy at work that would tease me about “still being pregnant” every time he saw me, which was every other day! He would also ask me if I was going to be pregnant as long as an elephant! As I got nearer to the delivery date, it seemed like I had been pregnant for 2 years!(He he he)
