The Nibletts...

......or why so many of my clothes have holes in them!!!! The Nibletts, as they are called together, Hoss and Tube sock when they are individuals,are Nibbles'  boys..


They are some kind of clothing piranhas! Tube Sock is the worse!



His only goal in life is to devour clothing! Seriously! I don't care if you sit out there in the goat pen all day,every time you look down he will be attached to some article of your clothing gnawing like his life depended on it! He takes after his momma,that is how Nibbles got her name after all!


He never tires of it! Oh,and heaven forbid you have some sort of draw string on your clothing! He will have it slurped sown like some sort of goatie spaghetti!




Let me tell you, if you have never retrieved four inches of drawstring off your pajama bottoms out of a goats gullet...well..think warm,wet and cud covered...oh yeah and a big ole bunch of eewwww!


I sure am going to miss him when he has to go to a new home...sigh!

So, how do you "yell" at a face like that?? I'd be spending my days in holey clothes. :)

He sure is a sweetie! I've often wondered how they can digest that some of that stuff - maybe it basically just goes through. I don't know. Yes, I am sure it will be sad when he has to go to a new home :(

I remember those days. I always called Goliath a nibbler. He never grew out of it. After he was naughty, he'd come and very gently nibble at my fingers to say sorry. Aren't they sweet!

What pretty little goats! The wee goatlings at Frizzy haired lady are nibblers, well, two of the three are. Thankfully Lothario remains a gentleman. But the other two are just trouble. They're so CUTE frizzy haired lady has a hard time staying mad at them when they do it!

And she knows now not to enter the barn with her hair down or she will be suffering the consequences!

Our goaties must be relatives of Nibbles. They nibble quite a bit, too.

Haha...my girls aren't nibblers, but one Mom and kid we used to have were--I'm convinced it's hereditary b/c they were our only two who munched on us!

Leslie said...
