MeadowWild Barnie Awards

 Oscars, Emmys, Golden Globes, Grammys -- they were just warmups for . . .
the Second Annual MeadowWild Farm Barnie Awards.
Crema stole our hearts right away —and always. 

 "I'm going to Disneyland!"

Lassi and Kona are learning the Rules: 
Alba butts, Dreamy bites.
They keep things joyful and fun in the barn.

  "Mom likes me best!"
"No -- Mom likes ME best!"

Nibby tolerates: 
Getting chased out of the GC
Playful, but scary-strong buck advances
Eating only hay and still having a weight problem
T geting first dibs on ANYTHING


 "If that big lug keeps slobbering on me I'm going to conk him with this hardware."

Dream freshened in June, 2009
Still Lactating—second winter
Growing a humongous barrel
Standing calmly thru any disturbance
Has the ugliest udder but it works.

 "WooWoo -- and no bratty kids on the way to drive me crazy."
T was Sire of triplet doelings w/ Alba
Producer of many healthy, strong kids
Always at the ready to do his duty :-)
Always cheerful and energetic
Not too rough on Niblet or Goatmom 

 "With all due humility . . . I am the greatest!"

Wonderful Steve is:
Water-boy exceptionale
Mid-wife (er, Hub) extraordinaire
Muscle-man par excellence
Bedding remover Expert
All-around Great Helper in Extreme
"No snide comments there, Niven."

No Biggest Noodle this year!  In Dodger’s absence, there really are no misbehaving goats here anymore, so we will retire this category until we need it – let’s hope we never do.  When T swallowed two baggies that were intended for poop samples, we thought about awarding it to him; but that Lassi has potential also – we’ll see……)


 And the highlight of the evening -- a record-setting three awards to this year's big winner:
Alba!!!  yeaaaaaay! 
Produced triplet doelings—all healthy and strong
Fed all three amply
Patiently let them stand and bounce on her
Taught them to eat hay and drink water
Protected them from the 
dreaded Ear-biter, Grandma Dream

Alba again!  Mother of the Year and Holey Moley!  
Can She Stand Still!!  We think she is victim of alien abduction—switched our old Alba with a calm, good producer that stands so very patiently, even when Goatmom forgets to give her grain.  We are in awe. 
Now work on those teats—a little longer, please.

"You like me!  You really like me!"

Yep, hang onto that "Noodle" award-Lassi has been working hard for it, it would be a shame to deprive her of it.

Well done, Steve and Goatmom, on getting all the winners through the show in such fine form (and with such fine manners-not an f-bomb in sight!)

You must be so proud! I've never seen T so dashing nor Steve so naked.
