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!
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
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!
