Goats, gripes, and grasping for greatness
Guest-goat had a baby. (Congratulations, Richie!)

The guest Nigora goat named Della that I boarded here last fall with Richie has had her kid. She kidded a little brown patterned doe girl - unnamed as of yet. The photo is a low-res off of the owner's phone, which is why the baby looks grey. Also, Viola says hi.

Bella first kid doe

The initial report of a stillborn twin was incorrect. (The owner called me back to give me an update. Baby girl is a single, has nursed and peed, and is now curled up in the sunshine with another kid that was born two days ago.)

This is why I can't have goats. I would snuggle that goat, and then I'd look like I'd rolled around in puberty. Stupid allergy. Yay for new wee goatling! Supacute~! I look forward to seeing the ones that are born on your farm!

As you know, once upon a time I broke out horribly hugging goats too. I thought it was worth it then, and thank modern science again for allergy shots that make it way less painful now.

Besides, baby yaks are just more to snorg in every kid. Calf. Cutie.

I just wish there was a way to hit the "no more growth" button on the wee ones. Tiny yaks are adorable. Full grown yaks can be kinda intimidating, what with the giant horns and all. I love it when they are at the 2 speed stage: stand still or run like their tails are on fire. :)
