One Day Old

Jan
10


Nutmeg’s baby, all dried up and pretty today.

I’m holding him a little bit every time I go in there so he will make a sweet pet. He already comes to me.

(Halfway managing to take a picture of myself.)


Everybody’s fascinated with WHAT is going on in the closed-up goat house.

Especially papa.

Even Glory Bee wants to see!

But for now, he only has me and mommy and–

–the chickens.

And that’s probably for the best because I don’t know what’s going to happen when he gets out of there and calls her–

–Granny Nanny!

    it depends on if she’s been looking forward to being a “Granny Nanny!” I’m a granny who’s called Nanny and I LOVE it!

    You’re making me want another baby or two! Two of my nubians were babies when I got them. Cocoa was only a month old and we bottle-fed him so he’s so sweet and gentle. I’ve found all boys are (they’re all wethers). Two of mine are pygmies and three are nubians and Bubba, well, we’re not sure what he is! He’s part pygmy and we think buffalo (just kidding). Someone came to our place and wanted to know where we got a mini buffalo and they were serious – he was not amused! Can I blame you when my husband gives me the look when I start talking baby goats again? :snoopy:

    AWWW!! I’d have a hard time putting that cutie patootie down. I am quite envious, not in a bad way of course. I know farming is not easy, but just look at the rewards!

    What an absolute doll! If Clover objects to being called Granny Nanny, tell her to call me. I was hoping little grandson Henry would call me Granny Nanny, but I was just with him for about 6 days before he turned 1, and he wasn’t calling me anything yet! :happyflower:

    Granny Nanny is cute! When my son was very young, we took trips to a petting farm (Bluebird Gap Farm), and the baby goats were our very favorites!

    If papa is Mr. Pibb…then maybe the baby can be named Dr. Pepper. Hehee…very cute. Congratulations to everyone!

    Granny Clover is going to love him. Just watch out Clover doesn’t declare Nutmeg an unfit mother just so she can steal the kid.

    Frosty is a cute name. He was born in the snow and he has frosty coloring on his ears. Just a thought. :fairy:

    The markings on the top of his head looks like what a badger would look like (I think – I could be wrong), so maybe you can call him Badger? He’s sooooooooo cute!!!

    My husband insists that I tell you that he thinks the name should be Dr. Pepper. There, I told you, now he can leave me alone! Ha ha! ;)

    He reminds me of Honey his long lost Uncle. I bet he turns out just as sweet. There were two goats in the paper to give away today. I so wish.

    Look at his cute little nubbins on the top of his head.
    This poor little guy was born the other day in Colorado but only lived a couple of minutes. http://www.lajuntatribunedemocrat.com/features/x493325799/Siamese-lamb-born-in-Swink

    I’m so glad everything went okay with Nutmeg & her baby.

    Yup, I think you’re right. I can see the “twitch” in her eye even as we speak! Granny Nanny is a young swinging thing who does NOT want to be referred to as Granny, Nanny nor any other derivative of Grandma! She is to be called CLOVER by one and all. And it is to be “Queen Clover” from the Woman.

    Well Mr Cutie blew my thoery. He is not exactly colored like Mr Pibb. BBBBUUUUUTTTTT, if I could get my hands on him and love him too. I don’t have any idea how cute heck is but, he takes the cake.

    I can see everybody is in love!!! See GB another one just like you (a baby). :hug:

    He is just the cutest! I don’t know how you put him down. I would be cuddling him all the time. Tell Clover there is nothing wrong with being a “Grand” mother. :yes:

    Whats his name????

    oh, he’s adorable. Not the color I thought he would be, from the video, but man, he’s a beautiful baby. I love that color on his ears. He has a really cute face. :heart: :heart: :heart:

    What a beautiful baby!!! Nutmeg must be so proud :-) I can see a little “rascal” in him already!

    He is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cute. I’d love to hold him. I think I’d want to take him inside and rock him and feed him a bottle if I had him. Of course, Mama would have to go along too to ensure her that he is safe. Maybe she’d like watching tv or just hangin’ out for a while. She has to be proud! :heart:

    Cute, cute, cute. Give him a squeeze for me, too! That last picture, the one of Clover, is the best thing I’ve EVER seen. Her face is just priceless!

    That baby is so sweet. I’m glad you’ll be able to keep him for a pet.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
