Mountain Goat

Cheddar has decided to pretend to be a mountain goat.

She's got quite a good imagination and a very tolerant mountain.

If you ask me, Pistol's doe, Lucette, looks awfully comfy.

She has her own little stump hammock.

I wish I could find one that fit me perfectly!

The Little Weaners

Thirteen little bucks are still shut up north to be weaned.  You'd swear they were being killed when their maas are near.  They yell and holler and want to nurse.  As soon as their maas go out to pasture though, the human gives them hay.  She even gives it to them before I get mine!

They look pretty happy!  Silly little weaners!

I Put My Hoof Down

I had to put my hoof down with the human today.

I'm an old goat, and it was really hot.

I told her I wasn't going out to pasture to eat and demanded some hay.

You can see who sports the horns on this farm!

A Noisy Time

It's that noisy time of year when the human tells us that the little boys have to be weaned.

Lenny and Squiggy
It makes both maas and kids unhappy.

Penny Lou

Except for the two boys that she can't keep weaned.

Ralph and Clover

Chili and Betty Lou

Silly, sneaky bucks!

Feminist Goats

Here at Eden Hills, we believe in does having equal rights.  That means some of the maas here think the bucks should do their fair share of raising the kids.

Those daddy and granddaddy bucks do a pretty good job of looking after the kids.

Lunch on the Go

It looks like Kizzy's kids ordered lunch to go.

Here's lunch,

and there they all go!

A Beauty Queen

This is Stormy's doe, Rosé.  She's certainly a beauty queen.

We're trying to keep her away from the coffee, so she doesn't have the hairy chest her maa has.

Just Like His Grandbuck

For some reason, Moose reminds us all of his grandbuck, Marley.

What do you think?  Can you see the resemblance?

Too Much Coffee

We think Stormy drank too much coffee when she was a kid.

 Isn't that what causes chest hair to grow?

I've never seen a doe with that hairy of a chest before.

Just Because I'm a Nanny

It doesn't mean this doe wants to be looking after kids all the time.  Last night it was Cupid.  Tonight it was Cupid and Little Bit!

Little Bit got left behind when his maa, Kizzy, went to pasture, so the human wanted me to take him out with Cupid.

Those two kept wanting to stop, and I had to keep them moving to go all the way to the back hill where the rest of the herd was browsing.

He did finally find his maa.

No chance of him getting lost now that he's found the right udder to follow.

I might have to put my hoof down if that human thinks I'm going to keep doing this just because I'm a nanny.

Kid Sitting

I can't believe the human talked me into this.

She made me take her kid, Cupid, out to pasture.

Really, I'm too old to keep up with kids anymore.
