    Me 'n the herd took a little walk around the canyon. I came home with 111 photos! Most out of focus, because baby goats move too fast. Here are some things that happened.

    First, we saw a big vulture swooping around looking for the dead skunk in the neighbor's pasture.

    Zelda tasted some old Russian Napweed.

    Butters and Margerine jumped on some rocks by the pond.

    ... and then tasted some pepperpod on the hillside (and jumped around a lot).

    ... and then tasted the cactus, just once. And then jumped some more.

    At the end, Snickers and Zelda had a snack in the grassy paddock that DH is fencing off for the goats.

    Your goats are adorable, and look to be having a blast :greengrin:

    What breed are Butters and Margerine?... Saanen? They are so elegant. And little Zelda is cute as a button :love:

    Yep, 4 month old Saanen bottle babies. I wish I had a picture of Butters trying to walk on a log - and falling off, then falling over. And Margerine slipping on the rocks and falling off. They only look elegant for a moment, the rest of it is sheer comedy. :greengrin:

    Great pictures! Snickers looks like LW's Demi!!

    What kind of camera do you have? I like the quality of the ones that turned out.

    Canon Rebel XS - their lowest end model DSLR. I wish I had bought something with a faster autofocus system. It is really hard to get clear pictures of the little scamps. My next camera will have the face detect feature, which I think might be a big help (if it recognizes goat faces!).
