Those of you who have been following along with the births of all the goat kids this year recently met the smallest of them all. She was the third born in a set of triplets. Her siblings were quite large – about 8lbs. But she, bless her wee little womb-squeezed heart, was only about 3lbs. Tops.
So Farmer John named her “Faintly.”
Because she’s just barely, faintly here.
She’s got a good appetite, and a good voice. So she’ll likely be just fine.
Many of you wanted to see a comparison photo with another one-day-old baby goat. So we posted this one:
(She’s on the left. Obviously.)
But then some of you realized that you really didn’t know how big either of the goats were, so you asked for another comparison photo.
So we took several. Because we’re nice like that. Plus, Faintly’s pretty easy-going. So to answer your questions…
Is Faintly bigger than a bread box?
Yes. Unless she squats.
Is Faintly bigger than a grapefruit?
Sure is, the cutie-patoot.
Is Faintly bigger than a Kitchen Aid?
Nope. She can fit in its shade.
Is Faintly bigger than a Top Hat?
Well. Would you look at that?
Is Faintly bigger than a grand piano?
Not even on tip toe.
Is Faintly bigger than a clock?
Maybe its Tick. Not its Tock.
Is Faintly bigger than a tea cup?
By three feet, she is. Yup.
Is Faintly bigger than this very fragile collection of glassware?
We’re not gonna find out.
Is Faintly bigger than a phone?
Call her. She’s standing by. All alone.
Is Faintly bigger than Brent’s head?
Not when he’s just gotten out of bed.
Is Faintly bigger than your heart?
She squeezes right in.
