First of the Month - January

I thought it would be fun to join Jan at Murrieta 365 for her First of the Month meme. Here are the ground rules per her site: "The goal is to capture one thing repeatedly on the first of each month. It can be a landscape, a person, an animal, a project; whatever your focus is, is fine. It can even be a record of where you are each First of the Month."

I have decided to focus on my pregnant goat, Abigail, for this project. This will be her first time kidding. She is currently only two months along and is due in April so we will get to see just how big a goat gets when pregnant! I always think they surely must explode! LOL!! Then we will get to watch as the baby(ies) grow up. We will also get to see what kind of a milker she turns out to be. Her maaa is GREAT!! :)

These are some pictures from this morning.




Her maaa is an Alpine and dad a Nubian. She got dad's Nubian markings and maaa's wattles. She doesn't have her maaa's beard but she does have "Flying Nun" ears!! I wouldn't swear to it but I think that is a "baby bump" already on her right side!

I also had to include her baby picture from the day she was born, March 29, 2010. Good thing she grew into those ears, huh?!? ;-)


It will be interesting to have a photo record of the changes over the coming year. It's not too late for you to join in on the fun too, come play along!!

Cool! Can't wait to see the baby(ies)!! Baby goats are sooo cute, but I'm kinda partial to a Jersey cow & heifer myself, two in particular;)

Jan said...

I'm a city girl, so I'm really excited about your project. I'm looking forward to all the photos.

SweetLand Farm,
Well...your Jerseys are pretty darn cute themselves! :)

Jan,
Thanks for stopping by and becoming a Follower! I used to be a bonafide city girl myself and look at me now! LOL!!

Fun idea Candy. It will be neat to watch Abigail grow and change. Baby bump came to my mind too!

She was a heart-meltingly cute kid! It will be fun to follow her along for a year!
