Fellow blogger, designer, and garden writer Jenny Peterson has a side gig in animal husbandry. Or so it seems on her Facebook feed, where she’s been posting photos and videos of her back-yard farm’s bevy of newborn baby goats.
Last Sunday, my daughter and I visited to see them for ourselves. And by seeing I mean cuddling. Look at that adorable, trusting face!
My daughter was in love. She’s holding Astrid, who was only a week old.
The mama goats were treated to apple slices for sharing their babies with us.
Like all youngsters, the baby goats were full of energy and playfulness. Eloise cracked us up by climbing on her pregnant grandma, Coco Chanel, like a jungle gym.
What a tolerant grandma.
Thank you, Jenny (and her fiance, Brett), for the delightful goat-smooching session! We had so much fun! I look forward to seeing piglets on the farm the next time we come. :)
