Practical Joker


Nutmeg, playing dead.


See how smug she looks? She thinks she’s so funny.

And then do you know what she did?

Yep, there she is, outside the goat yard. Rotunda, the plumpest goat in the goat yard, escapes yet again.

That’s what I get for waking her up.

    Goats are so fun, I can’t wait ’til I have goats again!

  2. Judy Laquidara says:

    As much as I’d love to have a few goats, it’s the escape artist thing that keeps me from getting them.

  3. EBet says:

    Oh I forgot to say (Nutmeg is super cute)!

  4. Susan at Charm of the Carolines says:

    I love Nutmeg! Ahhhh, to live the life of one of your goats!


  5. Linda Segerson says:

    I just love it, I want goats, I need goats, have a lot of woods that need cleaning up!

  6. Luann says:

    I Love Nutmeg and all your goat stories….

  7. Cheryl LeMay says:

    Did she ever get pregnant?She looks like it-I know that’s her normal state but I was just wondering.

  8. Denise says:

    My goats scare the crap out of me when they play dead! Arrgghh!

  9. texwisgirl says:

    I love her sexy pose – with that leg provacatively dangled off the spool. Ha! What a riot!

    Goat humor. Who knew?

    Ms Nutmeg does look like she could use a few caprine pilates. Maybe you could institute a morning calisthenics program for the gang. :sheepjump:

  11. lauren says:

    oh she is so cute sunning that belly 😀

  12. Valerie says:

    I also wondered if she was bred. She is just adorable, just like her mama. My goats were naughty escape artists, too. But cuter than cute. :yes:

  13. Nancy in Iowa says:

    Maybe she’s just pretending to be one of your fainting goats!!!

  14. Zusiqu says:

    Your goats look VERY chubby! Is their weight a natural buffer against the coming winter?

  15. Liesl says:

    Just too cute! She realy does look dead in that first picture.

  16. Tina says:

    Silly goat! I really like the picture where you can see all the animals; some of their little faces are looking at you! Nutmeg is quite the beauty.

  17. Barbee' says:

    Is she still recovering from the Big Party? Maybe that is just her attention getting gimmick. It worked, too. I think she is definitely her mother’s own child. 😉

  18. Ramona says:

    She has the most expressive face!

    What a bad girl she is.

  19. Deb Flynn says:

    I so wish I coud have goats. Nutmeg is soooo cute!

  20. Lisa says:

    Nutmeg is so cute sunbathing.(and scaring you)
