On August 12th, Yeti and Thor went to their new home in Cheyenne, WY. They went to a lovely family that will be training them as packgoats and I know they will be very happy and well cared-for. But we will certainly miss them nonetheless. Phil and I took them on a final walk the day before and made sure to get lots of pictures.
Yeti is always front and center for attention or for the camera.
Yes, I think the boys were ready to grow up. They were 75 lbs. each and were starting to look almost as big as their mom!
I’ve often had trouble telling Yeti and Snowball apart at a distance (although the horns usually gave Yeti away pretty quick!). I won’t have to look twice to see who’s sneaking up on me any more.
Yeti and Thor pose regally while Brownie and Cupcake cavort in the background.
Yeti–not quite so photogenic, but what he lacks in looks he makes up for in charisma.
And then we have Finn–Supreme Champion of both the photogenic and charismatic categories. Finn had some really big boots to fill when he took over from Cuzco, and it’s taken him a while to really live up to the task, but I think he’s succeeding.
Brownie and Cupcake are always competing for the “friendliest kid” award.
Maybe a pretty girl named Rita.
Mocha is probably the liveliest and most curious kid this year. But at the same time she’s as sweet and gentle as a little fawn.
These ladies are much too mature for such antics! Grown-up goats march in an orderly, dignified fashion!
Snowball and I share a moment.
A quiet moment to remember Cuzco.
And we finish off with a couple of pictures of lovely, contemplative Thor. We’ll sure miss these guys, but we’re thrilled they’ve found a wonderful home where they will be loved and appreciated.
