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.

Baby Goats in the Barnyard

I let Nibbles and her Nibblers run around yesterday - it was a scream. The baby goats thought the wide open spaces were amazing - and the barnyard inhabitants were awe inducing. Mostly they looked like this the whole time they were out....

A little wide eyed and really excited about everything.

They couldn't get over the chickens...

Chickens!
Kai thought they looked delicious.


No really, she wanted a piece of them baby goats.

Whatcha got here is a natural born killa stalking her prey.....

Debbie, due in about 10 days, likes babies so she was interested in them and gave them kisses.


The babies really loved the bridge over the gully. A lot.


After a whole lot of runnin' around, jumpin' and skippin' they'd just about worn their little selves out so I put them back in their pen. But today is gonna be a great day to be a baby goat! More running! More jumping! Yipee!

Happy Monday everyone!

The last photo makes me think of the tale of the Three Billy Goats Gruff! Can you not get a picture of the Troll that lives under the bridge?

I just love those little baby goats, always have. They are just so cute and playful,and curious at that age. Have a wonderful week.

CUTE! Does their mumma run after them? Our poor cow spends all day running after her exuberant calf, and calling out to him to "come back now" and then if he lies down in the grass she can't find him and bellows at us (as if we would take him!), I feel sorry for her, must be like having an instant toddler...

Reminds me of the 3 billy goats gruff, over the bridge!

Whoa Nelly! By golly you do have a dang gully! I'm really jealous now. I'm jealous that I can actually see the ground at your place.

"Winter is coming!" The dogs around your place could be stand-ins for the Wargs in the series.

hey FJ, yep I thought the same thing! ha!

HDA - EVERYTHING is amazing to those little ones - you should have seen them with the geese!

hey Mark, yep we laughed about the same thing! but um.. i think our big dogs are the trolls - the dogs want to eat those little ones for sure.

hi Darius! great to see you - hope that you are well. :-)

thanks Horst, these little ones are just so much fun. they love to tear around the yard.

No, Liz, Nibbles is just terrible with them! your cow is a much better momma...

yep Nancy, its hilarious how they only want to be on the bridge.

CC, we are lousy with dire wolves.. for sure.

hey MistyM! yep - so much running and scampering!

Dave, they are pretty darn adorable, and wide eyed at everything.
