Not a baby goat, but so darn cute….

Our neighbors around the lake have a menagerie of animals: goats, dogs, ducks, shetland ponies, donkeys, horses, cows, and llamas. The furry critters from Peru had their newest baby, an adorable caramel-colored cria, last week, and we finally got a good (camera) shot at it today:) It’s almost as cute as a newborn kid (goat baby, that is!)….almost.

 

Admired with a telephoto lens, and still mom is nervous.

 

It reminds me of the joy we will have in a short five months from now. We have four does bred now, with two more to go, and our little herd sire is giving it his all to make sure we have all six in milk next March. It will be so great to have young-uns around again:)

 

One more glimpse of the little shaver. Check out that dense coat!
