sweetest distraction


Meet the newest member of our family, our beautiful Nubian doeling, Hermione.

Afraid I’m going to be a little occupied around here, what with bottle brigade and romps in the yard and stroking those gorgeous Nubian ears. And I may or may not have had her in my lap at the breakfast table this morning…

She’s a week old and already a diva. Now we’re just looking for a playmate for her, as it’s really best to raise them in pairs.

But she’s rapidly charming the socks off all the rest of the family:

Philip just missed the full-blown kiss

And Puck? He nearly jumped out of his black knee-boots in surprise. I wish you could have seen the distinctly goat-ish double take–he all but rubbed his eyes with his hooves.

She’s nothing short of a gift to us all. And we love her to utter distraction.

    How completely precious…There is just nothing like Nubians… especially Nubian doelings. I had a full grown Nubian for a while when I was younger. Not quite as precious as a doeling… but I still loved her ears.

    Just beautiful! I remember sneaking baby animals into the house when I was little…chicks, injured birds, rabbits, and a piglet (Mother was not amused lol).

    How darling! Thanks for sharing the pictures. My smile is so wide it might leap right off my face.

  5. She is a lovely goat. Enjoy!

  6. You must know that clicking on your blog and seeing your adorable Nubian made my heart sing!

    Hermione is one of the sweetest animals I’ve ever seen. I know this is a sin, but I am green with envy. I saw many pgymy goats in India when I visited there and just fell in love with them. I love those long ears. I bet she will be a bundle though. Have a wonderful time with her.

    Cute, cute, cute!! I love her color! I’m so excited for you (and Philip!)
    Don’t let Hermione get any bigger until I can come see her! xoxo

    My dogs would not be nearly as welcoming as yours seems to be.
