Thanks Roperchick and Country Woman! :)

I haven't decided which one is my favorite, they're both so great! haha I love Hazel's hair though, it's just so beastly! But the Atticus has the sweetest personality...Maybe they can both be my favorite! haha


Speaking of favorites, both of them are Lacey's favorites! She adores them so much. Basically the only way I can describe how she's acting is by saying that she's acting like they are some kind of baby animals. She's very carefully watching them, blocking Hazel from butting Atti when Hazel goes after him within her over the fence range, and she just gets this very very soft look on her face when she looks at them.
It's really sweet. She definitely loves them more than she loved Lady! haha

And, to make this truly worthy of being in "horse pictures", here's Lacey watching over her "babies" [and you can see, they still aren't too sure about this big white thing that likes them sooooo much] :


Fabio - 13 year old Arabian/Lipizzan gelding
Hazel - 14 year old Angora goat

Atticus - 4 year old LaMancha/Alpine cross goat

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

I love goats! They have such exuberant personalities. I am so happy that Lacey is getting along well with her new companions... I can't wait for the cuddle photos!

I had a couple LaManchas that I got as bottle babies at the sale. They are like having dogs, great personalities. Too much fun!
They would hear me pull in the driveway and come running to greet me and jump in the truck if I opened the door. Nothing like taking your goats for a pickup ride :)
In the evenings I would take a walk, I would have a pile of dogs, a litter of puppies and my goats in tow...I am sure it was quite the sight.
Can't wait for more pics!

Haha, Chevaux, that's the plan!

Meee too Arrowsaway! I can't wait for them to meet up as well. It shoulddd be adorable. Atticus is maybe knee height, or a little taller to Lacey and Hazel is about mid-forearm height. I reallllly want them to hang out under Lacey's belly. xD

That sounds so great Cowchick! Sounds like you guys had a ton of fun!


Also, just for you guys, I took more photos...cuz you know, I just hate taking pictures, this was reallllly a stretch for me. NOT.


Already grazing together through the fence. I'm really happy at least Atti seems to like Lacey. L reallly likes dark brown/brown+black animals, always, so I knew he would probably end up being her favorite. I was a bit worried that he wouldn't like that role though. Good thing he appears to be enjoying himself!



"Heramgerb! I did NOT give that upstart permission to graze with that DANGEROUS creature! Let him risk his life, I certainly won't! HAH."



Happy boy with his bramble bush...



"Here goatie, goatie, goatie! Come to mama!!"
This was right after Hazel chased Atticus around the pen for no apparent reason. Lacey came marching over to the gate, from where she had been grazing, and if looks could discipline, boy oh boy.
Interestingly, while Lacey's generally pretty jealous when I give attention to other horses, she's not jealous at all of the goats! It's perfect!



"HELLO."
I had been told that the two best ways to get goats to like you are spending time with them and feeding them. So, I was sitting on the ground, to be less threatening, and taking pictures. I turned around and Hazel was RIGHT there inspecting me.



Then she laid down, and of course, she yawned. Do goats not have top teeth? I thought they did! haha She looks like one of those aliens that doesn't have a mouth, just a sucker thingy...
I think I prefer Lacey yawns... hahaha



*Innocent*



So much bravery! I tossed some hay pellets around on the ground where I was sitting to encourage them, Atti especially, to be brave. It worked! He got within 6 inches of me! Didn't particularly want me to touch him but he was willingly that close!
Also, his horns+coloring reminds me of some kind of African gazelle/antelope... The best!

Goats, sheep, cows, deer, and other ruminants, do not have top teeth. They have molars, but not incisors. Definitely creepy looking. o_O

They're cute, can't wait to see more pictures of them and Lacey all together!
