I Get to Meet My Grandkid - Alex the Goat

I came down to my pen today and was in for a surprise!
It's true!
I would not lie.


I entered the pen and stopped short!
I did not see AbbyGoat in the pen.
I saw something else!
Something very special!


Thelma the goat and my new great grandkid, Alex the goat!
I was very excited!
I am not so sure Thelma was as excited as I was....


I would NEVER hurt a baby!
You do not have to bark at me Thelma!
(Yes, we goats do bark to warn away threats.)


Isn't my little great grandkid cute?
I think he is adorable - but I might be a little prejudiced.


Thelma is a good nanny.
She will take very good care of him.
You can see how tall he is - he is one big kid!


Thelma is maaaaing her joy far and wide.
Or starting to mooo, one or the other.
What do you think?
They are cowgoats after all!


Welcome to the Farm Alex the goat - we are happy you are here.

  2. Thelma, you sure did a great job having that very large kid. And he is so handsome. Pricilla, you should be so proud of your great grand son. Looks like you got a little sun and that is such good news. Have a great week end.

    1. We just call them cowgoats here on the Farm 'cause they look like cows.

    I was really surprised the first time I heard one of my goats 'barking' out a warning.

  11. Aw, Pricilla. Thelma knows you would never hurt her baby! She just does that automatically to protect little Alex. He *is* an especially adorable little guy, too. You are a great great-nanny, Pricilla!

    1. No, Thelma did not let me lick little Alex. Maybe I can sneak one it a little later in the week.

  13. Aw, no lickity-licks? Well, I am sure you will get some later this week. After all, it's a great-grandma's right to lickity-lick all the babies!

  14. Pricilla - Congratulations on your beautiful new grand kid Alex. Alex is a fine looking cowgoat. His legs are almost as long as his Maws are. Those long legs should help Alex do some amazing leaping & jumping once he starts practicing his goat-moves. I hope Thelma stops barking at you soon, so you can get a closer look at your newest grandkid
