Just too adorable huh?

Yes his eyes are huge and appealing, yes he is a bottle fed goat who is supposed to be my "baby" for as long as he is in the herd because I raised him. However puberty has begun it's personality dominating hormone changes. Today was the first time Snickers absolutely would NOT follow me into the pen, ended up having someone else carry him because he is getting too big for me to pick up and walk with. They grow up so quickly and rebel. I hope it is true for goats as well as children - train up a child in the way he should go and he will return to it. :::sigh::::: it is good on Buhlaland but a little teenaged rebellion can make a gal tired.

I had to chuckle at this, Linda Sue... I remember not too long ago when I bottle-fed my little Daisy and she would just snuggle up to me.. now when I go to hug and love on her, she just turns her head as if to say, "Oh puleeze! Enough already!" LOL
They do grow up so fast!
