Still Nothing

Nov
14


Update on Cookie Doe: There is no update. She’s still here, still pregnant, still not having babies. She’s one of those goats who, like some women, look very content pregnant, as if it’s their life’s work and they think naught of their own discomfort, only of their precious babes.


You should hear Clover and Nutmeg talking trash about her.

    I must be mistaken, I thought she was already pregnant when you got her!???

    Maybe she thinks she’s a Duggar and wants to make 20 of those babies :)

    She has such a sweet face, like a baby herself.

    I’ve had a crappy, frustrating day trying to get on-line paperwork filled out for a job with the VA. I’ve been unemployed for over a year and this job is right up my alley. But as GOOD as I am on a computer and figuring things out, I was tearing my hair out over how things were (or WEREN’T) setup – for EIGHT HOURS. Don’t know how people who don’t know much about computers apply! FINALLY got ‘er done (I think/hope).

    I finally got to reading your blog at 2:3pm and literally giggled out loud! Thanks, I needed that!

    This is such a sweet picture. I vote it for the 2013 calendar! You can make the theme Pregnant at Stringtown Rising Farm – or mamas and babies. Or both! Do a split picture. One of mama preggers and the other with her baby(ies).

    lol Make this picture of Cookie Doe the cover girl. Clover will be jealous, but she’ll just have to get over it or learn serenity. Perhaps Yoga lessons would help her. All together now….Ommmmmm……

    She has a pretty face to go with that round belly. Oh I figure she will surprise you one morning with a new little package.She seems pretty content right now! :happyflower:

    She says, “If you want these babies to be healthy and strong, they will need a few more weeks of cookies!”

    Cookie Doe is smiling for the camera! I wonder if she would like to do some modeling like her sister Clover? Maybe the two of them could get all gussied up in tiaras and feather boas for the next calendar shoot? :yes:

    Clover and Nutmeg’s trash talking was totally justified I heard… from a little bird.

    Thanks for the update in the OB department. But…..how about Pokey? Or was it a false alarm?

    Suzanne – I’m with yvonnem – I thought Cookie Doe was pregnant when you brought her home?

    If so, you can ask her previous owners about when they had her in with the buck. My Nubians have been kidding RIGHT AT 150 days. And they all went into heat (6 of them) within the past week… so April is going to be a busy month for me!

    Yes, she was pregnant when I got her, but she’d been fulltime with the buck, so date of conception is impossible to know.

    Clover has always been my favorite but Cookie Doe is giving her a run for her money! Such a sweet face!

    She looks like she is waiting patiently, no worries in her face. When is that Pokey going to have hers. I hope nothing went wrong. I want to see a little Pokey or Jack. :happyflower:

    Your Cookie Doe and my Miss Tilly are on the same thought pattern, holding! Everyday I expect to see a baby or two, instead a very plump goat!

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....
