Farm Newbies...

Mama Bibi...
"Shhh...listen kiddoes"

"someone is talking about us"

"Ma, what is it?"

"maybe if I close one eye and cover the other and raise my left ear higher, I can hear?"

"well...did it work?"

"naw...I was just trying to look cute for the picture"

Bibi, our milking goat, gave us two babies
and they look nothing like each other
the little doe on the right looks like mama Bibi
the little ram on the left looks like papa Curly
cute and interesting
Bibi is a first time mother and doing a fine job at it

as many times as my husband went to check on Bibi before their births...
she went and did it, after all, when he wasn't looking
makes me think of when the Lord said to Job...
Do you know the time when the wild mountain goats bear young?
or can you mark when the deer gives birth?
can you number the months that they fulfill?
or do you know the time when they bear young?
Job 39:1,2

what do we know?
Almighty God knows everything
even every thought in our hearts

May your day or night find blessing in God's grace.


  1. Oh, the babies are adorable, and these pictures are just wonderful. It is my dream to have goats one day!

  2. These photos are wonderful, Jean. They are the sweetest little things. Good for you, mama.

  3. Oh~ they are so cute, Jean... I just want to squeeze them.
    And the scripture from Job is one of my all-time favorites... it humbles me every time I read it. :)

  4. Oh they are just darling Jean! And funny! And this this story provides such a perfect illustration for that wonderful verse! Blessings!

  5. Sweet little ones!


    1. Bring 'em over, my yard needs mowing!
