>look who arrived while I was in Tassie

>I’d like you all to meet Ruby and Rowan’s new little half-brother, Lucky:
so called because BrendaND thinks the black marks along his spine look like a club, spade and heart, and also because he was the only one [ of four ] to survive from the two pregnancies.
Pete has now been told that Nubians are less hardy than the other breeds and I ran this idea past my goat guru Rosie, when I went to pick David up today. For what it’s worth, she agrees … says that she’s only ever had two nubians and they were lovely animals but cost her a fortune in vet fees at kidding time.
Scarlett isn’t interested in him at all, so Bear’s mama, Misty, is treating the little guy as an extra puppy, complete with the tongue washing at both ends [ and all I’ll say on that is: she better not lick me with that tongue ]
Here’s Bear rather tentatively checking out the new member of the extended tribe
He sleeps in a hay filled tub in the laundry, coming out occasionally to play with the dogs and to follow Brenda around as she tends the garden.

Mr tough-guy Pete is still ‘joking’ about barbeques but somehow I think little Lucky is going to stay as a friend for his daddy, Blackadder… and the two boys are being entered in their first goat show this weekend in the Father-and-son class, so fingers crossed, okay ?

    >How cute! I want a goat now!

    >He seems much bigger than Bella was at that age

  14. catsmum says:

    >Well Nadie I think perhaps just a little bigger than Bella – can’t really remember – see what you think when you’re up here next … and of course he IS one cross closer to pure nubian than Bella so he SHOULD be smaller with less of the Saanan in the mix

  15. catsmum says:

    >but as has been pointed out to me, bucks tend to be bigger than does.I wouldn’t know – only girlies round here
