I Hate It When That Happens


I can count on Nutmeg to always find the latest, greatest way out of the goat yard–and onto my porch!

    Intelligent Girl! Just lookin for cookies, I’m sure!

  2. SarahKoski says:

    Nutmeg the Escape Artist. I have to wonder how she got out this time. Maybe she wants another tour of the house?

  3. Melinda K. says:

    You’re lucky the cat hasn’t opened the door and let her in!

  4. CindyP says:

    The first in line for cookies!! But I bet Nutmeg is working on the cat, they just haven’t got all the negotiations worked out quite yet!

  5. Stacy says:

    I was watching reruns of the tv show Wifeswap the other day, one woman allowed her goat to come in the house and sleep in her bed so watch out!!

    Your very own ‘Cookie Monster’ lookin’ through the window for treats.

    I have to agree with the above posters, I think she’s waiting on the cat to open the door for her! Catnip bribe, I’m sure!

    Suzanne reminds me…..

    Once we had a deck, once we had a goat, once we had a farm bell mounted on a post, up high above a thin deck rail on the end of said deck….once
    Bell rings…go to door to see if pesky neighbor is there…no neighbor but goat out again and down in the back yard ….must be wind….no wind….bell is not ringing now…go back to working…
    Bell rings again…go to door to see if pesky neighbor playing trick, if wind up again or maybe a pesky blue jay is there…no pesky, trickster neighbor, no stormy wind, no pesky blue jay… goat still loose in yard by deck, will deal with “Billy” later, bell is not ringing now… go back to working…..
    Bell rings….(#%+!) run to door with broom, plan to beat pesky, trickster neighbor, planned to secure bell, plan to ‘shoo’ pesky Blue Jay…”Billy” down in yard by deck, appearing to be grazing on maple tree leaf, his eye’s showing a slight ‘glint’…start to ‘ponder‘…no way…so go back to working..
    Bell rings and bell rings and bell still ringing..…whisper to self ( #%+!)… tip toe toward door with gun, suck in belly, slip up to door, peep around door window…see no pesky (almost shot ) trickster neighbor, see no stormy wind blowing, see no (almost shot) pesky Blue Jay, did see “Billy” tiptoeing like a champion gymnast across thin rail, fly off the rail as if possessed with wings, turn and look up to door from yard while still holding piece of maple leaf in mouth…
    Did not shoot pesky “Billy” but laughed so hard , nearly lost control of gun and other female tea-holding apparatus….

    PS…so your turn will come….if not already…
    PSS…and cookies are not helping the situation….

    She looks a little thin to me–give more cookies and she will be good. Well now let me think . . . That theory doesn’t work well with kids, so it probably won’t work for goats either. Darn!

  10. Shelly says:

    Nutmeg is so precious, just look at that face. Nutmeg just wants something special to munch on, very smart.

  11. trish says:

    Good Job Nutmeg! You are soooooooooooooo cute!!

  12. Ulrike says:

    It’s hard to be upset when the “trouble maker” is so darned cute, isn’t it?

  13. Darlene says:

    Nutmeg is so cute! Hope you’re there to take pictures when the cat opens the door for her, lol.

  14. Jennifer says:

    What a great shot!…Looks like you’ve got your hands full, too. Maggie Moo decided to become a rebel yesterday. Ate my pajama shorts, a couple of socks & refused to go outside when she needed.

  15. Angie says:

    At least it wasnt a donought addicted horse. I still havent lived that one down yet. :bugeyed:

    Oh My! That picture is priceless! Such a sweet goat, seems like the goat knows that good things are :woof: inside. Thanks for the pic’s, just love the kittens too. I almost forgot to thank you for the great recipe’s, that’s what brought me to this site, and they are wonderful.
