"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

Hey, ho! Peanut here! You might remember that I won the award for Cutest Kid last year at Herron Hill Dairy, where I was born. I got my picture on the cover of the calendar, which according to some isn't 'all that and a bag of Peanuts', since the cover gets turned over immediately and is never viewed by anyone ever again. Nonetheless, I was very proud. Now, it seems, my title is being challenged by Smidgen, the supposed cutest doeling ever born on the farm. Please, please, please, in this year of overdone elections, take the time to go HERE and vote for me!

My name is Peanut and I approve this message...and so does Marigold, who says to say 'Oy'.

Quattra here...Smidgen's proud and loving mother, also born at Herron Hill. I just had to visit your website to see what all the fuss was about her opponent. I must say, Peanut is indeed, very cute too but you really must see her in (kid) before you have your supporters casting their final votes!
Good luck and may the best,(cutest) kid win!
PS. Love your photos and stories!

Hey, ho, Quattra! Thank you! Obviously we are in need of an updated picture of dear Smidgen. :) Perhaps you could send it to the goatfarmer to post?

Thank you, goatgirl!!! Maybe the farmer will have a contest for Cutest Female Spotty Goat. :)
