More mostly pictures

Sunshine and leafed out oak trees - definitely spring warm weather and pleasant changes around the countryside.

Lanny (Lantana) is showing her general disapproval of all the attention being given to newborn twins - she is a twin and believes she and Fanny (Fantana) are much cuter than those little brown things.

The doeling alongside her mother, has been named Amber - her brother is Jasper - both gemstones found in Texas and often shades of brown.

Each day we have to go out and find the babies - Pearl isn't being a very good mother this year and leaves them out in a pasture. They are so small almost anything could take them - a few turkey vultures check out our place every day.

One picture to show how small Amber is compared even to Jasper - she is about half his weight. Will start supplemental feedings for them soon - right now they are only interested in the all you can suckle milk bar their mom offers.
New life, warm days and night - life is good on Buhlaland.

All you can suckle! Too cute! I hate to say it but it is true, lip curl and all, I am the cutest goat and deserving of all the attention. Life is all about me, well, a little bit Fanny too, but only cuz she's with me.

They are cute. It made me think of my grand-daughter Ellie. I have two nephews whose wifes both had babies within a month of Ellie. They are both younger and way bigger. She is on food now but I believe she is always going to be petite, just like the little goat. I have always been interested in seeing how animals parent their young. Why some are better mothers than others..kinda like life I guess.You would think it would all come naturally but I guess not.

Linda Sue, I enjoy hearing about all the goat exploits and farm life. Even though I live in the country, I don't have the critters, but I enjoy you who do. I think it's amazing how God made all different colors, sizes, and temperaments of the same animal - just like people.
