Bubbles Messes with Moe
Birthing time due end of this month - we don't think the four little doelings are pregnant. The brown girl is called Bubbles - she is a daughter of Pearl - one of our original herd.
The large picture was taken as she began an adventure of getting close enough to sniff that black animal. Most of the kids grow up skittish about Moe, Mighty Barn Cat. He is quick moving and likes to drink from the goat trough (where we also have large goldfish who beckon to a cat ) .
Bubbles started off a little coy - nibbling on the tank - opposite side of trough and fence from Moe.
She moved on around and decided to get bold and actually sniff the black (fat!) cat. Moe tried to just ignore the pesky little goat. He was certain she didn't realize who she was messing with.
The pressure was too much for Moe the Mighty Hunter and he began a dignified exit - spoiled by that brown thing moving even closer!
