Animal Crackers - More Black and White Babies!!!

 We have baby Goats!!! And they are not Annies... nope she is still as wide as the barn door! Lucy surprised us Thursday Morning with TWINS! These two are almost identical! Two gorgeous little boys - with those stunning blue eyes ;0) We have named them Fric and Frac - LOL
 This is Frac....


And this is Fric.....
 Or is it the other way around... oh well they are adorable! - And being Lucy's kids we are hoping that they are going to be super friendly like she is!

Time to do some Donkey shearing! We hired a young girl to help out this year. Not that we don't just love doing it ourselves you know... But she does such an amazing job, and Hubby is really busy with building his barn - Standard Girl Juliet is up first!

 And she was SOOOO good! A first shearing you never know if they are going to be calm or crazy. But Juliet was a doll and was just perfect!


 Of course she is looking a lot like a Deer out there now! Oh MYYYY We are so not use to those long legs with all the minis! LOL She feels so much better now though!
 Yes.. Felipe you and Jorge are next! They stood and watched as Juliet got her hair cut... knowing that something was coming their way... and they were right! LOL We don't do everyone, most of the slick off on their own or with a little help with some brushing. But some of those babies, that baby fur is just too thick. So off it goes!

This is the view of Libbie lately. She is getting much better about leaving them and eating and going outside, but never for more than 5 minutes or so - Such a good Momma!


 Yes, there are two puppies there with Libbie... they just really bury themselves under all that fur. 

How about some gorgeous puppy photos? They don't look like they have changed a lot  - but they are growing fast, and getting adorable round tummys - How is this for an adorable face?
 Puppy One - We have been calling her Precious - (Man I need my nails done! good thing I have an appointment today! Love that Shellac polish, but you can't let it go to long or they look really bad! )

Puppy two - she is the biggest eater, and talker between the two! First couple of nights I did not get a wink a sleep! She talks while eating, talks while moving around, talks when she can't find Mom, talks when she is happy she found Mom. LOL Sleeping she is quiet. But she is getting better...
 
They are really sooooo adorable! So adorable we are questioning getting Autie and Libbie fixed... I know... total suckers! We just love these puppies, and Libbie is such an amazing Mom. We are still talking though.... 
 
Now... I need to tell you about the most sad thing that did happen this week. I have been really upset over it, know I need to tell all of you that are such close followers of Animal Crackers. We lost Rosie this week. She died Sunday - suddenly. She hadn't even been acting sick or down at all. Saturday night we played with her and did our ritual hugging and loving - Sunday morning she was down and couldn't get up. A couple of hours later she was gone. Hubby and both were crushed, but we know that it was her time, she fought years longer than she should have - We will miss her terribly - already do. We love her, and always will - she was our Rosie Girl.  

HUGS and -

Well, what a way to start my Saturday. The joy of the new babies, the cuteness of Miss Long Legs, Juliet & then the sadness on reading that you have lost Rosie. All the happiness & sorrow of loving animals encapsulated in one post.
You will miss Rosie a lot, but I hope you can take some comfort knowing that she had 4 years of love & care that she probably wouldn't have had otherwise. And she won't be sick any more. Give all your babies - big & small :) - an extra hug today, from me. And of course, one to you & your hubby as well.

Poor little Rosie... I'm sure there is an animal heaven Michelle and she's already kicking up her heels and having a grand time.
The other babies are so sweet... I love Fric and Frac and the puppies are going to be chubby little balls of fur before long.

LOVE the twins. So darned adorable! I love the *cheek to cheek* photo :) The puppies get more precious each day, too!
Sending sympathy and hugs for you, I know you will miss your sweet Rosie.

Your puppies are gorgeous and will provide a sweet distraction. So sorry to hear of Rose's passing. You nursed her through so many tough times it must be extremely hard to have lost her. Fric and Frac are adorable too bad they are boys love the blue eyes. Envy you and your babies. Hugs Ann Lind

Oh poor Rosie. Your right she fought long and hard and I am sure she said enough is enough and knew she had to cross the bridge. Yes she will be missed for sure. You should make a tribute page so we, or rather I can go back and look at them all and say to myself "I Remember"

Hugs to you and Hubby

So sorry to hear about your Rosie. Reading your post about the new puppies, I came across 2 words that would make great names, Shellac and Winky. Love those names.

Oh Fric and Frac are just adorable!! Hope that they will be as friendly as their Mama. Puppies are always cute and Libbie is such a good Mom. Rosie, that's sad, esp for you. You nursed her through so much. Just remember she's healthy now and running and playing and in no pain.
Hugs,

I always love seeing your Animal CRackers post. The puppy pictures are so precious as are the new twins. I am so sorry to hear you lost Rosie. Your post is a perfect example of new life and lost life cycles.

Michelle I am so sorry. Was just catching up, and read about Sweet Rosie. I am so sad about hearing of her passing. She was such a sweet thing, and hung in there so long with her being sick. I know you and Hubby will truly miss her. I hope she passed quietly and now off in mini donkey heaven waiting to see everyone again some day without being sick ever again. Sweet, sweet Rosie.

I'm so sorry that you lost Rosie. If it had to happen, I'm glad it happened when you have new babies being born. They by no means replace Rosie, but babies sure do comfort your heart. Big hugs to you and hubby.
