The Babysitter

mastiff & baby goats mastiff & baby goats

The baby goats are spending the afternoons away from their moms to encourage weaning. I feel like such a meanie, but it’s good for them to get used to exploring on their own, and it encourages them to eat more hay and grains, which is going really well. Peabody asks to go out every half hour or so, just to check on them. : ) Such a good babysitter.



Throwback Thursday: When they were just pups.

These two were pretty darn adorable!

Mini-Nubian Babies!

Betsy and Buttercup delivered their kids on May 1st and May 4th. I’m SO excited to have four healthy, bouncing baby goats here. The kids are getting tons of attention and snuggles, and all four have curious, social personalities. They even did great meeting Peabody…though the mamas weren’t too happy about it. He loves all creatures great and small, and had fun teaching the little ones that dogs are cool.

These mini-nubian babies will be available to approved homes soon. Please contact me if you’re interested in more information or would like to reserve a kid. Both mothers are CAE/CL/Johne’s negative. [Read more…]
