Kid Cuddles

Our goat kids entertain, play on, and snuggle with visitors, whether they be kids or grown-up kids. Unlike cow mamas, goat mamas don't mind strangers playing with their babies. Maybe that's because goats think that they're people--or that people are goats.

Waylon, Willie, and Seely

Meels proudly presents her new triplets! 





That's Waylon on the left and Willie on the right. Their little sister, Seely, is in the middle. If you're an old country music fan, you already know that they're named after Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Jeannie Seely.




They're living up to their names. Seely is smart, fun, and feisty. Waylon and Willie have already escaped from their pen to run wild around the barn--three times. Maybe we shouldn't have named those two after ramblers and good ol' boys.

Put my tears in Your bottle.
Are they not recorded in Your book?" ~Psalm 56:8 AMP

All Little Kids Love Playgrounds

Calico and Ariel love to play on their tractor tire/jungle gym/circus arena/launching pad, especially when they have an audience.

Mork and Mindy

Moey's a brand new mama, and a most devoted one. As of this writing, her kids have only been on terra firma for 21 hours, but Moey has bathed each of them so often that they haven't yet had a chance to completely dry. When she's not washing the twins, she's curled up beside them, telling them how much she loves them. Moey hardly even stops fussing over them long enough to eat, which, if you know her, is more than remarkable! 

  

For now, Mork (left) is smaller than his sister, Mindy. 
The umpteenth bath.

The Next Best Thing to Grandkids

Introducing Blueberry's new kids, Calico and Ariel! The first four pictures were taken when they were just a few hours old; in the last, they're about 8 hours old. I've taken lots more photos, of course, which I'll probably be sharing with you ad nauseum.
