Big Adventure Day for the Babies

The babies are already a week old!  They have gotten so big in just a week and their little personalities are starting to show.  Today it was a blamy 30 degrees so I thought I would let them out for a little adventure and so Daisy and Sassy could get some leg stretch in.

Sassy was doing fine with her babies until they decided to start running around then she got annoyed with them and started calling and talking to them.  Of course, the babies had other things to do.

And Daisy being Daisy headed right out with her little man tagging along (see the new header photo).  She went right to her favorite place, the bird feeder.  I am sure her little man was thinking. "But mom, why are you eating bird food?  I thought we were goats?"

Action shot provided by little mini-mancha girl.  I haven't named her yet as I am waiting for her personality to really come through.......I know, if you name them, they are probably staying..............

Little LaMancha man got to meet ReRun................

......and he was checking the beagles out with lots of curiousity.  The beagles are so good with the babies too especially because they provide lots of "little treats".
The babies were out for about 30 minutes then I put them back in so they wouldn't get a chill. They totally crashed out once back in their stalls........so much play makes for tired little kids:)  I have to admit for all the stress Sassy and Daisy put me through, its kinda nice to have a little fun in the barn on these depressing winter days!

Barb,
Perhaps you need a goat up your way? LOL

Voni,
I agree April is much better but those goats just have their own agenda. Can't wait to see your babies and all the fun you'll have!

Nancy,
Thanks! I just happened to be at the right place at the right time for that one:)

Periwinkle,
Sorry I could not find your actual "real" name but I wanted to say thanks for stopping by! Are you getting Nigerians? I looked at your photos;) I use pine shavings and hay for my stalls (I read one of your enteries;)

Hi Kristie,

I'm so happy to have found you via Front Porch Indiana.

I too am single and have a small "farmette". It's so nice to meet another woman who is trying to do everything herself! I'll be back for tips and better ways to do things.

Stop by for a visit to my place when you can.
