So I finally remembered to take my camera outside with me yesterday and snap some picture of the animals. I didn't get everyone but I figured some is better than none at this point.
So, first up are some updated pictures of some of the babies.
Here is Magnolia, Prophet and Oleander (left to right) with a little bit of Gyra's head in the very far left.
And here is Magnolia by herself in mid-chomp on a leaf.
She is getting big and lanky. And bossy.
Here is Oleander, striking a pose.
She is pretty much the same size now as Maggie and Prophet even though she is two weeks younger. I guess having the oven to yourself makes for a little more growing room (Nancy, take note).
I also figured I would introduce you to the bigger guys.
This fellow is Faja or, Red Hot Faja as he is know in the registration books. He is our boer buck and he is just over a year old.
Pretty impressive, huh? Yes those horns are big and yes, he knows how to use them. I always have to be on my guard with this guy. He isn't particularly agressive but he sometimes gets silly when we go in to feed them. I don't think he quite understands that cracking skulls is not everyone's idea of a good time.
Today when I went to feed him, he started getting a little bit pushy. Usually he'll stop on his own but sometimes I have to grab him and get his head on the ground. After a while he'll say "Uncle" so then I know it's ok to let him go. Then he acts like nothing ever happened.
Here is our angora buck, Titan. He came with that name.
He's about half the size of Faja and probably about a third of the weight. Fortunately, he is all about the food and doesn't bother to play games at all.
I am going to have to shear him soon. That ought to be fun.
And last but not least, I have an update picture of Fen.
What a good looking dog!
I tired to get pictures of the other babies but they were having none of it. I also tried to get some pictures of the horses but I made the mistake of taking the camera with me at feeding time so all I got were pictures of close-up noses.
