More Kid Pictures

by CountryThreads on November 30, 2017

Here’s Reed with a brown dappled baby.

And here is a black dappled baby – looks like polka dots!

It’s one of the prettiest little goats I’ve ever seen! More babies—–

And some outside pictures.

And look at this tiny baby.

And I had another busy day today meeting my friend Jode’s dog named Zippy, a 5 month old golden retriever puppy. Who wouldn’t love this puppy?

And her daughter’s dog, a 3 year old Wheaten Terrier named Finn. I wanted to bring this dog home with me!

Do you think Hazel would like him? Ha!

Enough already – such a busy week. Back to sewing – no more animal posts for a day or so. It’s time to finish the Christmas decorating!

Yes, Diane, about 4-8 lbs probably. Dwarf Nigerians weigh as little as a pound and a half which is what Susannah was.

Just a note to tell you how much I enjoy your blog and pictures! I was an Iowa farm girl and it was a great life( still live in Iowa, in the country, but not on a farm!) Anyway, so refreshing to hear of your animal adventures and your quilts. I enjoy quilting also. Thanks for brightening my day! Jan

Holy cow…that entire herd must have had babies! That dog, Finn, would make me want one! I can see why you’d want to take him home! So cute.

Loving your goat photos and then the dog pictures. Both dogs are pretty….but Finn! Oh my gosh he is cute. Thanks for the fun.

Finn looks like a keeper but I think you’ve learned to bring them into your heart and home one at a time. I’m sure Hazel would disapprove of another member of the family, and she has priority right now. Continue on with your quilting and decorating … I’m jealous. Don’t know where the days go but they sure do fly by. Have been working on a landscape challenge and hope to be hand quilting by Saturday. My hours fly by faster than yours!

I love Finn but know better than to bring another terrier into our home. Terriers are my favorites! All kinds of them.

Such cute goats and doggies. I’m just curious why they are producing so many goats???

Maryjane – Darwin and Betsy raise goats to sell.

what darling goats–did not realize the could be so much variety in coloring–also Reed is quite the handsome boy–we have a 3-year old named Reed who spends quite a lot of time at grandmas–he would love the goats

My son has always wanted to hold/pet a baby goat. Even though he’s in his 40’s, it’s still something he wants to do. Your goats are adorable!!

I wish those baby goats stay that little. They are so cute!

Thanks for all the pictures of the kids with kids, When I was a kid, a gazillion years ago, I had a little Nubian goat that I raised on a bottle,.. I totally loved that little creature. It’s so much fun to see how kids and animals connect.
