About that wrench....


Mama used to say, "I know one thing! I have simply got to"... do this or that. There was always something mama felt like had to be done, bless her heart. I miss mama.


what now!
Well, I know one thing! I have simply got to put a post on my blog this morning! 



Adopting a month old, bottle fed, baby goat has really thrown a wrench into the works here.



But enjoyable...let me tell you...this is such a sweetie pie!



For the most part she lives in the big pet carrier that Shelby and Jimmy gave me. After feeding her, she runs laps around the living room and kitchen, jumping up and over chairs and tables, while I laugh and play with her. She runs to me and when I bend over to pick her up, she jumps up to meet me, nuzzling her little nose under my chin and nibbling at my ear.


Oops! Excuse me! Sorry!
Sweetness! Absolute sweetness! So, after playing, she goes back into her carrier, without so much as a whimper. She seems totally content to lay there and watch.


just wanted to ask, did you say we are friends, or not?
Sometimes I tell her she looks like a miniature black Angus cow. Other times, she reminds me of a little donkey. 



When the sun warmed the lot and the teeny tiny barn yesterday, we ventured outside. Asa watched.

and watched...

and watched.

Poppy brought home a bale of hay. That empty hay rack looks dangerous! The baby could jump and get her head or leg caught.  I packed the new hay tight, all the way to the bottom...and still worry. I don't dare leave her alone, not yet.

Another thing I have simply got to do is give this baby a name. Today, I will name her today!

Need to get busy...honestly, where do the days go? Hope to be back soon. Thank you for looking in.

Love,
Henny

  1. Today's post is about way too much cuteness and wonderfulness. I want a dog like that, totally gorgeous. I do hope Asa warms up to bitty baby. Good you are introducing the two. I'm thinking bitty baby may soon be top goat in the land.

  3. I think of her as Bah Bah even though she's a goat and not a sheep. Every time I see her I think Bah Bah black sheep...er...goat. Thanks for lifting my day today with this post.

  9. She is just the cutest thing and such a contrast with Eli. I love to watch baby goats play. Can't wait to hear her name!

  11. Oh, she is just so adorable, but then so is Eli....

  12. I wouldn't get a thing done either if I had such a cutie to watch. Eli just lies there and accepts everything. He is so good-natured.
    I do hope Asa warms up to the little one. Time will tell, I guess.

  13. What a cutie! Interesting that Asa didn't make a move toward her. Eli is being very forbearing with Baby.

  16. Just love your little goat....not as much as Eli of course, but still....I love seeing pictures of her. and do you know, when I was looking at the first pictures I thought she was a black cat!!! She really is little ....it looks like everybody is getting along with her pretty well. Hope that continues. Lucky you, with so many beautiful animals around!!!

  17. Well, it's obvious to me where your time went - playing with that goat. She's going to think she is a house pet and will get to lounge on the furniture like that big white harry dog. What a crew you have!

    Have a good weekend.

  19. I just love baby goats. Whenever there is a video on facebook watching them jump and play I just love to watch it. Eli looks so patient too. Enjoy that baby while she is little! Wish I could come play with her too! Nancy

  20. Rosie is so cute! Love these photos. I'm sure you'll all be glad she's moving into the barn, however. I rarely bottle feed my goats, but I have to say that it is an extremely sweet experience.
