Goings on in the Goat Barn

Doesn't this poor goat look exactly like we ladies feel when we're ready to pop? Sorry for the extreme details but it is what it is. We're all putting odds on whether this mom has twins, triplets, or quadruplets in her. Ava's rooting for quadruplets since she really thinks she was put here on this farm to bottle feed a baby something.

Now if we all just slimmed down like this mama did right away. Although I might not recommend her methods - we're treating the whole herd for coccidiosis right now.

Meet Wattles. I've never seen a baby born with wattles on it before so it got a name. If you don't know what that it, google it - wattles on goats - and you'll never be able to say my blog didn't teach you something useful.

Lias is finally old enough to interact with the goat babies and isn't quite sure how to take it.

But who can resist such cuteness?

Nathan's even turning into a masterful goat herder and baby catcher, although he is a little jumpy around them.

And why do I always get the cute pictures of these hooligans in the goat barn? Not quite wall worthy when they've got a goat baby in them but definitely blog worthy.


  1. I think those first two of the three of them with the goat are definitely wall worthy! Great shots, and such cuties!

  2. Great pics!! LOVE LOVE the kiddos with the goat.I nee to bring my stinker over there for some cute pics :)

  3. Definitely wall worthy - they're so adorable!
    And I feel just the way that poor mama goat looks!
