Shirley and Sassy

This is why I'm glad I didn't get a trade for Cash for Clunkers. Goat transport. You don't fret too much when your goat pees three times (at least), and poops once, as you are going down the road, driving a ten year old car. I just hope the smell is gone tomorrow.Today I picked up Trinity from her arranged marriage and honeymoon at my goat mentor, Shirley's place. I also got another lesson from Shirley. Today it was goat tattooing. I wish I had more hands to take pictures, but I was attempting to learn fast, so I could go solo on the next one. Trinity's brother needs his done also. Each ear has a set of letters and numbers to identify the farm of origin, and the birth year (X =2008) of the animal. I also got a few new kid pictures for those looking for their goat fix. I hope this is a preview for next month.
This lovely face belongs to Sassy. I took a liking to Sassy. She was actually quite mellow, considering...
...what the rest of her looks like.
Sassy had triplets last year, and Shirley thinks they are expecting triplets again, any time now. Sassy is quite impressively wide.
This is Red Heart. If you remember, he is Trinity's mate. We now mark the calendar and wait to see what the two of them come up with. I like his personality as well as his look. A friendly guy.

All the kids in these pictures are only 24 hours to a week old. They are small for such a short time.
And they grow up so quickly.
Eating hay already!

Your kids are beautiful, so sweet looking...Congrats! Sassy looks very peaceful considering she looks like she's going to pop side saddles, at least twins....Looking forward to their arrival.
