This is "Indian Paintbrush" Just as the Donkeys, these are registered animals, and have registered names. And a lot of times it is a formal name - We are just calling her Paintbrush - She had claim to the house right off. And is really funny, she stays in it all day - only comes out to drink and eat. I was told she loved to be "indoors" but Wow... she really does love her houses. She goes in and turns around and stands just in the doorway. Really pretty funny - Oh and she has been shown and is a Reserve Champion! She really is stunning.
And this is "Anna Bell" - yes we have a Donkey named Anna Bella... Hubby is calling her Annie - he says she needs a more fun name, less formal as she is the youngest, actually Lillie is her Momma - Annie is the most jumpy and other than putting her new collar on her as we put her into the pen, we haven't had our hands on her. But she is beautiful! And she will calm down the more we mess with her.
And Now our BUCK... and be ready as he is really HYSTERICAL! I don't know why but just looking at him cracks me up!
Now this is "Egg Nog" I know really silly name huh? He was born near Christmas. We don't like it, but it is his registered name and we can't change it. The previous owner didn't like it either and she just called him Stinky... ok I have come to find out that is a very correct descriptive term for him - fits really well. But Hubby said no way was he calling him that it wasn't right. So we called out name over and over. I then said it had to have something to do with those gorgeous blue eyes! And there it was.. Frankie! As in Frank Sinatra... LOL And he loves to "sing" too... He talks all the time while you are outside. And do you love those horns? One goes forward and one back... too funny.
You can really tell the Annie is Lillies little girl here - Annie has more black on her and a white spot on her side, but seh really does favor her Mom.
Well that is the four of them, and soon to be more! As all three of the girls should be pregnant - may have babies as early as the end of January... but February and March for sure. Unlike the 11-13 month wait with the donkeys, the goats are only 5 months. And they can have 3-4 of them at a time quite regularly. Both Lillie and Paintbrush had triplets last time I think.
Hope you have a wonderful Saturday - I don't know if I will be back tomorrow or not with photos of the craft room, depends on if we get it finished tonight or not.. sorry... I keep dragging it out - but life just keeps throwing us curve balls :0) You know life!
