Goat Mama

 Lunch Time
 They love their milk. We started off feeding them the first couple weeks with a goat milk replacement. After Jacks got the hang of the bottle we found a recipe using whole cows milk, buttermilk and evaporated milk. They took to it quite well and have gained significant weight with it. So it is a definite keeper for raising kids.
 I can't imagine these babies going to town on their mother's nipples. The way they suck vigorously is almost frightening.
 Anything that will be jumped on or climbed will be jumped on and climbed.
They are very agile.
 Lizzy always looks like she is smiling. She is a pretty happy little thing. She is a very happy, go lucky, goat. She also likes to talk with her mouth full.
 Jacks is pretty laid back for a goat. 
 He is very cuddly for a goat. Though now that his horns are coming in he has accidentally jabbed me in the chin as he tries climb into my lap to be cuddled.
 I don't know who is more curious...Jacks or the chickens. All the chickens were crowded in the corner to see what was going on.

The Goat Mama has lunch.
 These little guys love to run and will follow Victoria almost everywhere.....
 Until Lizzy gets distracted!
 Back on track......she usually loses focus about three times.
