I Would Like to Introduce My Grandkid - Harry the goat

It was a truly happy day on the Farm yesterday as we received a new member into our midst. Please welcome my grandkid,Harry the goat!!! His eyes are not blue, sadly, it's just the camera.

In honor of his birth so close to Father's Day this little bundle of fur has been named for the publicist's father. She is positive he is rolling over in his grave - well he isn't in a grave but you get the idea. Heh heh. Abby had a pretty easy labor and welcomed little Harry with lots of licks. We nanny goats lick our kids a lot in the beginning to clean them off.

He took his first steps within minutes of his birth, wobbly as can be but he was a real trouper! He made his way over to Abby's udder for his first drink of her rich milk with that nutrient rich colostrum.

The publicist thinks he is a little cutie. He is smaller than Kevin was when he was born.

You can sure tell from looking at the little guy that there is NO doubt as to which buck is his daddy.

They are like little goat doppelgangers aren't they? This is Luke when he first arrived at the Farm. He was two months old when he first came to us.

He is of course a very proud daddy goat.

The photos are not as good as the could be as they were taken in the barn in the dark with the flash. The publicist will have much better ones tomorrow when she takes the kid out for his first walk in the sun. I guess it is the year of the buck at the Happy Goats Farm.


  1. Congratulations! Luke and Abby done real good, because little Harry is very adorable. Do you think Kevin will have fun playing with him when Harry gets a little bigger?

  2. Aw, he looks like a little Harry guy. Too, too cute!

  3. awwwww! he is so cute, I could just nibble on him!

  4. He's beautiful! Too bad all the lovely kids are boys!

    I can't wait for new hopping adventures.

  5. Oh, congratulations!
    Looking forward to new hopping adventures.

  6. Congratulations! What a little doll. I just want to scoop him up and hug & kiss him. I'm sure Abby would not appreciate that. Sigh. It will be fun watching the adventures of adorable little Harry as he grows up.

  7. Welcome little Harry! He's absolutely adorable. Cannot wait to see more pics and hear about his antics.

  8. No fair! You have your babies in good warm weather. That means that the buck must have been in the barn somewhere around January 24. We never wanted our winter barn to smell like Buckingham Palace. But I guess the price is winter kids and kids with diapers in the house. Congrats on the easy delivery and handsome baby.

  9. Daisy - I do think they will have fun together. Kevin is not going to the Farm we thought so now we think Kevin and Harry will go to another Farm together.

    Heather Cherry - actually the publicist thought Harry the goat sounded rather like a mob name heh heh

    Marlene - I am not sure he would taste good right now. He is covered with Abby spit.

    Carolyn in disguise - heh heh - it seems all the goat blogs I visit are full of bucks. It has been a year for boys.

    Sue - it will be interesting to see if Harry's a hopper too!

    D'Anna - Abby is a touch possessive right now. But the publicist is bigger than she is.....

    Split Rock - oh, there will be pictures!

    Aunt Vicki - no namesake, eh? heh heh

    Old Grey Egg - oh no! We are Montana goats! It all happened in January, outside in their pen. Snow on the ground and all. We are tough!

    Cici - sorry we didn't have does for you.

  10. Hey P, thanks for visiting my blog today. Wow, a fellow showtune lover? NO WAY!
    I usually listen to the "showtune station" that comes with our satalite TV package (go figure).
    In my studio, I've recently taken a shine to Hair (previously dissed by me), but now I really like it. I do need some new tunes as I'm so tired of all my Cds.
    I would totally have a goat. But alas, here in the suburbs, it is illegal. My chickens already are enough of a disturbance. They were up and making a racket at 6 am as the feeder was empty...brats.

  11. Does Luke now refer to Abby as his kid's mama?

  12. Ahhhh, Harry is ADORABLE! Geesh, Kevin is going to have some competition for all the love now. Give Harry a big kiss for us over here in Weirdville!

  13. awwwwww...how cute....a new goatling!!! i love the name. i can't wait to see more pictures!!!

  14. HI HARRY!!!

    What a sweet little goatlet. I hope there will be a video?!?!

  15. Happy goat birth! I hope he and Kevin get along great.

  16. How cute how cute!! Now how did I do in my pool of myself on guessing his colors? I can't even remember what i guessed since I am so awestruck. He is adorable. :)

  17. FishHawk - all Luke wants is more doe.

    Lin - I think they are going to look quite cute together. As soon as Harry gets his legs under him I am going to let them run together.

    jaz - tune in tomorrow!

    JD - if the publicist would read the instruction manual thingie on her camera to figure out how the video works there might be. She does not own a video camera. I know. This is shocking and so very 70ies....

    Frogs - I think they will..they are so close in age.

    Julia - heh heh. Although we Nigerians have some pretty wild color possibilities I think it was a pretty safe bet with these two.

  18. He's just darling! Such pretty colors. It is just amazing to me how quickly they manage to get up onto those wobbly little legs.


Maaaaaa away....
