Penny loves to be picked up and held. Rita loves to tease and play but doesn’t usually want to be held. She’ll sneak up behind you and grab your hair or poke you with her hoof and then race away in glee–mischievous little stinker!
But once in a while Rita sees Penny sitting cozily in someone’s lap and she has to climb up too so it’s fair. At a month old, sharing a single lap at the same time is getting pretty crowded!
I can’t get enough of Rita’s EARS!
When she’s not imitating a Texas longhorn…
…she looks perpetually surprised or alarmed.
And little Penny is just sweet and friendly. She looks like a little deer fawn, and her soft, sleek brown coat almost invites you to stroke her.
Baby goats love this big rock that we pass on our daily walks. We call it the “baby goat rock” because from age two weeks to about two months, baby goats can’t pass by without leaping up and treating it like it’s their “fort”.
Challenge all comers!
This downed tree is also fun to explore!
Sometimes I love to sit on a rock or stump and wait to see who comes over to investigate. “Hi Rita!”
Phil has decided we’re keeping Skeeter. She’s too pretty to sell. She looks like Finn AND Sputnik, and her conformation is turning out very nice.
She just recently discovered the joy of cookies!
Sputnik doesn’t miss a trick. “Did someone say ‘cookies’?”
Look how similar these two faces are!
“Sorry guys… all out of cookies!”
