Goat baby update

Aerin and Loki are both definitely eating solid food now. They spent Sunday out with the others, grazing on grass and dead, crumbling tree stump. Loki sampled some nut shells, while Aerin was more interested in nibbling on flowers. I'm pleased that they are actually eating, because they are both getting rather big. They are having some awkward moments fitting under their moms for nursing.

Aerin is still uninterested in human interaction. I'm trying to be patient. On the other hand, Loki has a new attention-getting technique. Along with putting his front legs on my leg and stretching upward like a cat, he is now shoving into me. He rests his head on my calf and then pushes from there. He isn't actually striking me because his head is already touching before he puts weight behind it. I'm having some trouble remembering to stop him, but I definitely need to start working on it. These two behaviors, while cute when he is small, are going to be dangerous when he is bigger.
