Tell me they鈥檙e pretty! 馃榿 My first kids were born March 10 and will be 4 months old this July鈥hey鈥檝e gotten so big. But recently I鈥檝e noticed Dandy has gotten prettier. The reddish brown on her face has become more prominent. the ombr茅 sandy color from mid back to her tail has mostly disappeared. I expected that though because her father looked just like that and lost all his sandy markings except for a few on his legs and angry eyebrows. I鈥榤 glad she鈥檚 keeping all the markings from her mama. I鈥檝e noticed she鈥檚 also getting more whitish hair coming in from her undercoat.

We had a herd walk today with one set of Nubian mama and kids because Francis gets testy with others around her kids.

Thanks! The weather was nice this evening, so I wanted to get some pictures of them all. This time last year we were waiting to pick up our Nigerian does on July 4th. I think Bambi and Blizzard have grown up to become so beautiful, and now Shamrock has given us two baby girls that are also growing up to be so beautiful.

The bucks have really matured and look so beasty now. Cowboy looks like such a fuzzy sweet monster. I can鈥檛 wait to see what his kids will look like. They鈥檝e all matured so well and look nice. Blizzard has more of her black and white pattern. To me, it looks like her mascara is dripping from her eyes. Bambi still has those big doe eyes and will guzzle an entire cup of coffee if it is anywhere nearby. She is our goat that might eat anything. I鈥檓 so glad they seem to genuinely enjoy being here. They all run after the atv (turkey or two included) and follow it. When it rains or before a gust front hits, Treasure tries to call me into the shelter if I鈥檓 outside. It鈥檚 an honor they see me as part of the family. They also never have tried to go beyond our property. The Nigerian kids are so friendly, like addicted to people but not as incessant as a bottle baby. One of the Nubian kids, Barley, is also becoming very friendly with us. She jumped into my dad鈥檚 lap and made him so happy this Father鈥檚 Day. He didn鈥檛 realize she was friendly because he was trying to win over Francis鈥 set of kids. I don鈥檛 know if we鈥檒l breed Blizzard and Bambi to Cowboy this fall or wait. They turned a year late March-early April. Still waiting to see if Treasure will carry a kid full term. It鈥檚 been an exciting goat run so far. Lots of frustration trying to learn and scramble things together here and there! We also hatched 63 turkeys this year from 2 hens.
