Too late now

The new baby goat is hard to photograph -- her coloring is a little like that of a pinto horse, but also calico, like a cat. She is considerably smaller than our cats and has a Yoda-like profile. Honestly, not the cutest goat ever, but a good little Nigerian Dwarf, friendly and cheerful and peaceful. She slept through the night in the dog carrier without uttering a bleat and drinks milk out of a bottle three times a day. I cringe to see diapers on anything other than a human infant, but given that she can not live outside until there is a companion and a fence, we have no choice. She is currently about as objectionable as a guinea pig.

  8. Totally with you on the diapers until she's an outdoor goat. Goat droppings in the house would seriously diminish the cute factor. And I love love love her curled up with your son on the sofa. Mazel tov!

  15. Love reading your blog - let me join the "OOOOOHHHHH - CUTE!" brigade! Thinking of you and your mom - so sorry for the loss. (Apologies if I'm opening up the wound; with M-Day this Sunday, I've been thinking of you.) All the Best, Ida

  16. omfg! That is the cutest little thing I've ever seen! It makes me want to say "screw the city ordinances!" and go get a goat.

    my husband and i joked if we got goats or sheep, we'd call them our dogs. What!? There are "Sheep" dogs. ;-)
