Naming the kids and protective mother goat
The problem with taking three posts to tell you about Friday is that I now have three days worth of goat excitement to share with you in one post. Let's see if I can be succinct....
Reader question 1: Do the kids look like you thought they would?
The buckling (left) looks almost identical to his father and just like I
expected. He does have a tiny bit of white frosting on his ears and
maybe a couple of moon spots --- it's hard to tell because he's already
so pale. The doeling (top) is a bit paler and has a hint of a dark line
down the middle of her back.
Now moving on to my own observations....
the meantime, I'm stuck bringing the fresh portion of dinner to her. To
that end, I'm spoiling Artemesia with her very favorite types of tree
branches, which I attach to the side of an IBC tank for easy leaf
picking, and with armloads of freshly cut rye stems. On that diet, she
seems to be bouncing back from her pregnancy very fast.
