    He is so awesome! :leap: I've only had him a week. He already walks on lead and performs a number of behaviors on cue. Today was his first time in harness and his first time pulling anything. He did wonderfully, even on the road w/an approaching then passing vehicle. :thumbup: Can you guess what this kid wants to be when he grows up? :wink:

    The harness is too big and I can't adjust it down any further. :shrug: I find it works fine for training, though. He won't be pulling anything heavy with it, only a light drag. I plan to have one custom made once he's full grown, when I get the cart. He has a lot of growing still to do. <g>

    Thats true, he does have alot of growing left to do. At our county fair there were two nubian wethers that had to be like 200 lbs! Im sue he will grow into it.

    Thanks!

    Gina - Geoffrey is very vocal,too, but he only hollers if the person whose attention he's seeking is far away. When I walk him or interact in ways he likes, he chatters or hums. :laugh:
