Cosmo taking a nap (with the white splash).  And Galaxy is already bonded to my daughters.  The photos show the progression … he laid down next to 8-year old Anneliese, stood up when his momma came around to sniff him, nuzzled Anneliese when his momma started to nudge him, and climbed in Anneliese’s lap when his momma started to lick him.  (The last photo shows Anneliese’s delight!)   Savannah, is my favorite doe and she is a fabulous momma.  But it is also important that our goat kids imprint on people, too, so that they learn to be calm and mannerly around even young children.  Our bucks grow up to weigh as much as 350 pounds and an ill-tempered, ill-mannered one is especially dangerous!
