    Well, I figured I had better post some pictures of the boys enjoying themselves after all those work photos of Melino... I couldn't have everyone thinking I work him too much lol. Pace and Shanti also needed to make an appearance.

    Here are poor little Pace and Shanti locked away whilemelino got to pull a sled around!

    [​IMG]

    I feed Melino his dinner so he can eat in peace before letting the little guys out

    [​IMG]

    Then I finish working with the big guy and let them out. The first thing they do is slobber on the pumpkins set up in the driveway

    [​IMG]

    Then they satisfy themselves with leaves

    [​IMG]

    Notice pace's snazzy winter beard... it disappeared this summer but started growing in with his winter coat

    [​IMG]

    It seems that Melino is growing a little goatee too, but it is hard to tell

    [​IMG]

    Shanti, however, remains beardless

    [​IMG]

    Off he frolicks

    [​IMG]

    Then decides to stand in the golden sunshine

    [​IMG]

    Pace thinks this log smells suspicious

    [​IMG]

    Shanti climbs off the rock to munch some grass... please don't say it... I know he is FAT! The funny thing is, he gets alfalfa pellets and hay stretcher with a little grain each day. He's practically getting fat on air ???

    When it is time to go back into the pen, Melino decides to grab one last bite of grass. Doesn't he look regal?

    it isnt like Shanti is going to be bred :ROFL: so a little extra weight wont hurt him. He looks content and happy and that is what matters :greengrin:

    Haha liz, I thought the same thing about Shanti, he would make a lovely doe!
    I have an angora kid like that at the moment, I walk through the kid pens and I go wow, that is a lovely little doe ... then I look again and go shoot, no its a buck :slapfloor:


    Pace, your boys look so content! And well cared for

    Beautiful pictures! And the goats look great! I remember that video from last year (I think it was you?) of the goats exploring the pumpkin. :) I went out and gave mine our pumkin and they wouldn't touch it. :shrug:
    Anyway great pics!

    Thanks so much everyone :greengrin: Yep, the boys are doing very well indeed! Liz, I won't tell Shanti he should be a doe, I doubt he would be very happy about that lol! Then he would try to be EXTRA manly just to prove to the world what a great "boy" he makes... not that he's really much of anything anymore, being a wether :roll:

    Tina, haha my goats LOVE pumpkins! At the farmstand where I work during the summer they sell pumpkins. Any ones that are too old to sell are given to me for free. The goats are sure having a great time of it! They seem to have perpetual pumpkin-gut faces lol.
