Hello Dolly!

 Meet Dolly,she is our brand new farm baby! Just look at that face, total cuteness! Dolly came to us this morning from my friend Texan. You can read about Dolly's story here.


 My friend Texan, did a great job taking care of her after her mom rejected her!  She is strong and full of energy and already trying to do The Goatie Goat Dance! I think she is going to be an excellent Goatie Goat Dancer,don't you?



Of course we had to introduce her to Oscar Petterson...




Oscar gave her a few gentle  touches to see what this strange critter was...



He was unsure and decided he would watch Dolly from the baby asparagus plants!

 Me and the Boy went to sit on the red bench by the goat pen with Dolly and Oscar followed...Mr.Petterson had made up his mind! He was the farm baby and he did not like this new critter and as far as he was concerned he was a cheetah and Dolly was a zebra!



He kept trying to attack her! It may have had something to do with that cute little wagging tail of Dolly's!


I think Dolly has formed her opinion of Mr.Oscar Peterson too...phtzsttttsss!


So now we have a new farm adventure...another bottle baby! I can't help it...just have a soft spot for taking care of critter babies..even if it means middle of the night feedings! I mean really,who could resist that face!

She is pretty. It is challenging getting them to take the bottle but so worth it.
Glad you have a new baby

Oh what a glorious barnyard story! I read yesterday of Dolly over at the Texan's blog. She is sure Laughing Duck Woman has wings! Me too!

Fabulous pictures, winsome witty words. Mr. Oscar Petersen is so cute. Like all cats, he has his opinions. :)

Dolly is a precious goatie baby girl. Dancing her goatie dance of happiness.

Thank you for sharing this!

What a beautiful baby! I read about her on Texan's blog. Look at those loooong legs! It's nice to have baby stories at your house again! Many goat kisses from Isobelle!

She is adorable...how lucky are you to have her join all your lovely critters.

Melodie, I really admire your patience! After watching Mad Max the puppy, both Elaine and myself decided "No more baby critters"! Unless of course they are chickens or turkeys. Our recent dog was 3 years old, and past the puppy thing. Must be an age thing, where you get tired quicker.

Oh, she is ADORABLE! How kind of you to take her in, Melodie! You are a big giant softy like me. :) But how could you resist that sweet face??? Cannot believe Oscar Peterson is beating her up. Sheesh.

So Cute! I thought we were going to have goat babies this week...our Alpine looked like she'd have twins, but turns out she's not even pregnant. Talk about being bloated! LOL
