They are so cute! Nothing quite like watching babies explore the world.

FYI, I used your archives to make my first goat butter Saturday afternoon, and I'm getting ready to try my hand at mozzarella. Fingers crossed that it turns out. Thanks for the inspiration!

I just adore the floppy ears on this breed. And isn't it amazing how curious AND agile baby goats are, the way they love to climb on just about anything. Thanks for these pictures, I bet it was easy to spend time out at the barn being entertained by these little guys!

Leigh,

What sweet angels!!! You can just see the wheels spinning in their brains when each of the babies try or see something new. Enjoy them while their small :-) because they grow up to fast.

So cute!

I know I'm prejudiced, but I don't know of another baby animal that is cuter, more curious, more active or just plain adorable than goat kids. If we could bottle that zest for life!!

I love watching baby animals explore and learn. So cute.

Nina said...

Young kids are so sweet! They sure are pretty little things. Mamma looks attentive and content. You're getting quite the little herd

Renee Nefe said...

how do you get anything done? I would be out watching the babies all day. lol

off to start my garden today. Hopefully since we had such a rainy end of winter (can't call it spring, it was too cold!) our summer might not be so violent.

I think I'm going to build some frames over the garden to protect it from the hail...just in case.

Woolly Bits said...

irresistible:) I agree with Rene - I'd watch them all day!

They are just too adorable. I want to grab them and squeeeeeeeeze them. :-)

Pam said...

Oh Leigh, they are just so precious!! Everyone looks so happy! :)

What a wonderful set of photos, the last photo really tells it all. Too tired to keep exploring. Sweet little ones.

Ah cuteness factor x 1000! What great shots and they look so content, and Mom's keeping an eye on them. Love the climbing and the shot of the solo white baby. Looks like she's smiling!

So cute, too bad blogger at Rural Revolution can't spend a day at your house enjoying the antics and curosity of your baby goats, maybe she would change her mind on goats.

Bless...so cute and so curious of the world around them. They are so tiny too! You can't really tell until you see them next to the cat and the hen. They could practically fit in my pocket :)

DebbieB said...

Simply amazing - my babies were much less active and self-sufficient at age 2 days. :)

Susan said...

Well, now you've put me to shame. I have no pictures of my two. Was that Tugboat Ziggy making her way through the crowd? I am amazed she can still walk! Ziggy babies must be imminent!

So beautiful!

Quinn said...

Ain't it the truth! And to some degree, it never stops :)

That was an incredibly cute series of photos.
