Kids’ photoshoot

All told we have tripled our goat flock this year: we went from 3 to 9 in one week! Of 6 babies, 5 are girls. We have a single, twins and triplets. Here are some pictures, now that the kids are all dry, fluffy and bounding around.

I have discovered a new LAW of the UNIVERSE.  Maybe it’s one of Murphy’s Law, whatever, it is now proven and immutable. It is physically IMPOSSIBLE to get three goat kids to look at a camera at the same time. Can NOT be done. No matter the silly noises I made, stood on my head, clapped and whistled while balancing the camera. NOPE.  And here’s the proof…

Blynken, Wynken and Nod (not only do they not look at the camera but they won't stand in order!) 🙂

Be sure to look ANYWHERE but at the camera.

Double Stuff (our only boy) is the most outgoing, coming to greet Dave at the fence.

I'm running out of caption ideas which is probably a sign I am posting too many pictures. but I can't help myself!

    What green open spaces those kids have to play in! To look out over such a grand farm and to see your hard work looking lovely, healthy and enjoyable is a wonderful thing.
    What a blessing to provide this for the community, thank you!
