    Mr. Blue got his feet trimmed. He's such a good boy for his daddy- he wouldn't get up off Matt's lap when he was done. I'm a little worried about him though. He did something to his front leg the other dy, and hasn't wanted to put any weight on it. No swelling, nothing feels out of place, and he can move it if he needs to. I'll give it a couple of days until I panic.

    I built the boys a Goat-henge out of scrap wood and tree branches. They seem to be having a grand time with it so far.

    And finally, we're up on the list for fainters! WoO! now to decide which ones to get [​IMG] I love fainting goats!

    They're starting to butt each other. I'm watching them for signs of aggression, but so far it's friendly goat play. They're so danged cute when they very gently bump heads. They're so sweet to each other. Mr. Purple is the more outgoing one by far- he'll jump up ON my back- all 4 feet- and just stand there. Makes me glad he's a pygmy cross. He's not that heavy. Mr. Blue is very meek and timid and lovey. He's my good boy.

He sees me looking and he will limp...lol...goats
