Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Three MORE goats!?!?

Friends, I stand here slack jawed and buggy-eyed.... in the last 10 days we have tripled our goat herd. Its late on Tuesday nite and I'm ecstatic to say that Nibbles had her babies! Three of them! Two girls and a boy and they are all spunky and fun and happy. I can't believe it.


Goat herd. Herd o' goats. Big herd of goats. I'm a goatherd of a large herd of goats. Nine of them. NINE goats..sure most of them are small.. but still. Wow!


Earlier today I thought the most interesting thing I was going to tell you was that the beez were out today. And then all heck broke loose and it was "udder" pandemonium! And a lot of goats.

More on this later, I'm sure, but for now I'm amazed. And exhausted. A whole gaggle of goats showed up today. My heavens!

Wow - tripled your goat herd. You don't do anything halfway, do ya? Yay for more goats! They are just adorable.

Congrats Nibbles! I knew it was triplets! Are you going to keep either of the girls? Both?

Their back ends look like another color! How cool :)

I think you are going to have a very good year..yep. Where I live, a cold winter always means that the deer, and sometimes moose, have twins in the spring. Perhaps your goat babys are weather related as well?:)

Robin - its going to be like a Stir Crazy popcorn popper out there!

Thanks Kristin - Lets just hope that Nibbles is a GOOD mommy this time!

Nope,B2B.. its all out or not at all. hee hee hee Sometimes this gets me in trouble.

Hi Autumn! Nope we are selling them all. The 2nd one, Porter, has really unusual markings. I'll get better pix today hopefully.

Mr. H - maybe "epic floods" = triplets? And I always love when celebs want my life. Hee hee hee hee "Imma be on Extra", aint that right? ha! I'll letcha know if Mario Lopez comes to interview me.

It's approaching midnight, but I promised myself not to go to bed without checking OFG's blog first. And...voila! Three more goats!!

Excellent. Your kindness has a way of making its way back to you, dear pal. I'm so happy for you!

Six baby goats hoppin' and poppin' around the barnyard, the rest of the animals have to wonder what is going on.

At what point to you go from a herd to an invasion?

Looking forward to the close up pictures.
