It looks Beautiful, It sounds Beautiful and It is Beautiful!

Ladies, Gentlemen, Friends and Foe it is raining in Jewett America on the Bar H Ranch.

Yesterday Roy and I just sat and watched it rain and it is raining as I type this post. I don’t think it will be 10 inches, but we are thanking God for whatever he sends us.

I also forgot yesterday to thank everyone who came by and commented on Blue Monday.  I appreciated your comments about little War Blanket.

Speaking of Goats, I took some pictures Monday after I fed them.

Meet Mama and one of the daughters. Mama will always go for a scratch between the horns.

018

This is the way to eat, get in the bucket and lay down, then no one else can get your food.

019

These two pictures are of Susie, as you can see she is expecting and I think maybe a couple of weeks.

021

Princess is also pregnant, but not as far along as Susie.

022

The little goat in the middle is our up and coming Billy (in a year or a little more).  The light tan/cream goat is his mother and she gives the best and biggest babies you have.

023

This is Nunnie too, her ears like her mother’s stay in that position.  Her mother is the Flying Nun.

024

Feeding time.

026

Isn’t she darling..I haven’t named her yet, looking for suggestions.  She is black headed, some on the neck and tip of tail, white body and brown and black legs and has the cutest little face.

028

Pilgrim watching me, making sure I don’t hurt one of his goats.

Last, here come some of the ducks look for their dinner. 

We have lots of pregnant nannies, but it will be a couple of months before they deliver, which is great, the weather will be warmer  and more stable.

Hope you enjoyed a trip to the pasture to meet a few of my goats.  I love my nannies and babies, but sometimes it is hard to love the Billy.  They are very independent.  I guess that is the way it should be.

Have a blessed day and if you need rain, I hope it is raining at your house.

See Y’all

I'm so glad y'all are getting rain. I'll have to ask my sister in law in Centerville if they are getting it too. We are raining today - actually it may turn to snow. Your goats are precious.

We're getting rain here in San Angelo too -- FINALLY! Isn't it great!?
Love the pics of your goats -- so cute.

I love your site. I just had to come and see anyone named "The Purple Goat Lady." I love your goats, so cute. We have pygmy's for 4-H, so I know the fun goats can be. Good luck with your up coming babies.

We are enjoying the rain here in East Texas too, and Richard got the fertilizer out on the yard just before it started. Hope you are having a great afternoon!

I love your goats, goats are so much fun, the unnamed goat looks like a Cleopatra to me, Queen of the Nile, we have been getting rain, I just wish it was as warm as it was last week...I guess you can't have it all

DEAR BARBARA,
PRAISE THE LORD FOR RAIN....
I LOVED ALL THE NEW PICTURES OF YOUR GOATS
I THOUGHT OF TWO POSSIBLE NEW NAMES FOR THE PRECIOUS DARK FACE GOAT: "ESTHER" OR "GRACIE FACE"
LET US KNOW....I HAVE NEVER NAMED A GOAT BEFORE.....IT WAS FUN THINKING ABOUT IT.
PRAYERS CONTINUE FOR ROY, YOU, HIS MOTHER, AND SISTER.
BLESSINGS

glad for the rain. We had so much rain last weekend that there has been a lot of flooding. I would rather it rain than the cold snow. I love the little goats. It would be fun to live on a farm for a change of scenery. I covet the peaceful quiet and fresh air that country living brings.

I'm so glad you got rain. All the goats are cute, but the little un-named one is adorable. I suggest the name Patches.

Hugs!
