Just some Lacey/Hazel/Atticus pictures... :)

These are just some pictures I took this morning.
Everyone is doing really well.
Hazel finally has some weight on her bones (that's been a struggle since bringing her home - she arrived skinny, then got less skinny, then lost a lot of weight, and so on. But now I think we might actually be getting somewhere permanent!).
Atticus is really growing up - he's HUGE now! He's basically the size of a large German Shepard. I'm 5ft 9in and he's finally to where I can hold his collar without bending down at all. That's a real plus because he's a real live wire so sometimes holding on to him for a minute or two becomes necessary. Silly boy! He's also way bigger than Hazel now. When I brought them home 5 months ago, Hazel was maybe an inch bigger than him. Now he's a good 4+inches taller than her! Gonna be a big guy.

Lacey is also dong really well. She's starting to shed which is pretty exciting (I love the "Spring is really truly coming" part of shedding - spring is my favorite season! haha).
I was a bit worried about her shedding out due to her eyesight issues but at least it's for sure that she ill be shedding something. How effectively is another question but we'll see! My fingers are crossed. I can always body clip her if need be. I don't really want to have to do that but anything for my girl!
Also, only a few more months until I can test out riding her again! I'm really tempted to start hopping on her and just walking around the pasture but I'm trying to hold off at least until the end of February. She's 100% sound now, in any case, so that's pretty thrilling!

Enough with the stories, picture time!!

"Breakfast??!"



Sentry goat.


I moved these stumps up to the pasture a few weeks ago for Atticus but hadn't seen him playing on them yet. I was sort of worried that he didn't like them because, you know, the harder it is for your owner to bring you something, the less you should like it...luckily he seems to really like them!

"Stump KING!"





"RATS! I can't put these over!!"



Besties.



Cute face.

This one is my favorite of the set, I think.



"Hrmergerd."



Nose. :)



Dew drops!



"Ladies and gents, step right up to take a look at the AMAZING free-standing goat!!"

This is his new "thing". He spins, waves his front legs around, and can even take a few steps.
This goat is RIDICULOUS.




Thanks for looking!
I hope you all are doing super well!! :)

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

Happy to hear everyone is doing well!

Atticus is such a goof-ball.
Love how Lacey and Hazel are just meandering around while he's just all over the place.

Me too, Wild Heart! I almost feel bad for Atti, how they have each other and he has...stumps. He's too funny.

Right, RC?! Lacey is in full wooly-bear mode right now! And to think I'll be "wearing" most of that in a few months.
Usually I at least trim her "beard", but this year she's getting to go fully au natural. Lucky duck!

Im glad to see that Lacey is doing well! But wow! Atticus sure has grown a lot! Goats look like they are so much fun to have! Should have looked into it a while back, but now that Im moving probably a better thing that I didnt get one! He looks so pleased with himself on top of that stump! haha
