I’m letting the babies out in the yard now during the day (as of yesterday). They need the exercise and space to dance around.
And dance, they do.
Mr. Pibb, inspecting rival bucklings.
There’s been a lot of head-butting as the pecking order must be re-established with new goats in the mix. Not that these boys can stay long with the girls. Note in this video the already-amorous behavior as Sailor attempts (hopelessly) to climb Mount Sprite. There’s some cute goat dancing in here, too.
P.S. They will have to move down to the bottom pasture goat field with Rhett and (daddy) Eclipse as they mature. (Mr. Pibb will be moving down with them also as his job here is probably done. For now.) The babies (Sailor and Pirate) are available for sale. (Email me at CITRbusiness(at)yahoo.com if you’re interested.)
