Turns Out, She Was Just Fat


Dateline: Stringtown Rising Farm, West Virginia

A two-and-a-half-year-old Nigerian Dwarf doe named Nutmeg gave birth to a kid late Sunday on a farm in Roane County. Based on her girth, Nutmeg, known on the streets as Rotunda, is believed to have been pregnant for nearly two years, and was expected to deliver ten or twelve kids. Sources close to the goat suggested the mythical ballooning of her figure was all a ploy for sympathy and treats. The rumored father, Mr. Pibb, was seen passing out cookie cigars. Clover, a family spokesperson, stated that she was told by an unnamed Woman that the kid was a girl.

“The Woman isn’t known for identifying sex correctly,” stated Clover. “I wouldn’t depend on her.”

She kicked another goat who called her grandma and made off with the remaining cookie cigars.

Nutmeg, who at presstime was resting peacefully in the goat house nursery with her kid, had no comment on the accusations involving the ballooning of her figure or the behavior of her mother.

More pictures and VIDEO OF THE BIRTH tomorrow!

    Your goats given to birthing at sundown?

    May I respectfully, if you do not already have a name, submit Macy, based on the
    relationship between nutmeg and mace?

  54. Yankee In NC says:

    Yippee!!! Congrats to all!!!
    A girl!!!!

    I am so happy for Nutmeg! We are not going to be having any babies here until late Spring as I am still looking for a suitable male to come for conjugal visits.

  55. Teri says:

    :snoopy: :snoopy: :snoopy:
    Thats awesome!! Congratulations! And I second the name Ginger – if it really is a girl. :shimmy:

  56. Phyllis says:

    Waiting patiently for baby pics.

  57. Kim says:

    Suggestion for a name “Ginger Ale” that way both parents are named as Nutmeg is a spice and Mr Pibbs is a soda ๐Ÿ™‚

    HUGS to all and congrats!

  58. Urbanite says:

    Ginger Ale is just the cutest name. Macy is cute, too, but if she turns out to be as round as her mama, the other kids will tease her about being a Macy’s parade balloon!

  59. Kelly in TX says:

    CONGRATULATIONS!! I can’t wait to see pics!

  60. Mim says:

    can’t wait til you have the video ready for all of us to view. Congrats….. :pawprint: :snoopy:

    Oh Happy Day! another birth at Stringtown Rising Farm. Congratulations to all!!! :woof: :woof: :woof:

  62. Martha in KS says:

    My well-fed girth has on occasion been mistaken for someone with child. Luckily, no rabbits died for the cause. Congrats on your baby!

  63. Yvonne says:

    I thought of Ginger Ale too, until I read today that it’s a boy! Hmmm, have to think on this, my brain is in overdrive!

  64. Ramona says:

    I like her Grimlin hairdoo!

  65. kay keen says:
