Our two almost 5 month old ND's were bottle babies. We bought them last month and not too long ago I was thinking they were probably held a lot since they were small and bottle babies so I decided to try an experiment. I sat myself down on the hard floor of my hubby's work area and sure enough the wether came over, pawed my leg, then plopped himself down in my lap and started to chew cud. I have a lap goat! Who knew goats could be lap goats? A newbie like me surely didn't! The doe doesn't do this but will lay down right next to us. Such sweet babies!
