    I actually had not watched that video all the way through yet and now I'm pretty much crying from laughing so hard. I had no idea he was doing all that while I was riding!! What a dork.
    He really does steal the show, following us around all sneaky like.

    He's SO annoying sometimes but then he does stuff like this and totally makes up for it.

    I don't think he's ever seen me ride Lacey before (I stopped riding her about 10 days after bringing the goaties home)...SO glad I got that reaction on video!

    Then this video. Atticus was being VERY high energy today!! Haha
    Atticus: "Hazel, play with me!! Hazel. Hazel. Hazel. HAZEL. HAZEL. HAZELHAZELHAZELHAZELHAZELHAZELHAZELHAZEL!!!!!"
    Hazel: "NOOOOOOOO."
    H: "Moooooooooommmmmmm! Make him stopppppppp!!!"
    [I love how she goes to me for "protection" and how Atticus actually stops bugging her when she's next to me! Too funny.]

    I love how she comes to you for security. What an honor that is, isn't it?

    That's it. I need some ornery goats. I can just picture the trouble that M would help Atti get into at my house - oh my!

    Ahem, Lockwood - when you come to get your truckload of pears in the fall I will be expecting cute little goats as payment...yep, that will do.

    Geez, why can't our goats be fun like yours? Ours are actually fainting goat (oops, poor little guys!) and we've had them for 4 months now, but they've never played like Atti. They mostly just scream at you for food and houdini their ways out of everything, only to houdini their way back in at meal time xD

    I'm thinking that perhaps Hazel had a false pregnancy and last weekend was her "giving birth" to it, then perhaps the not eating/depression following was because she was pretty sure she was pregnant as well and she was sad about not having babies?
    Apparently that isn't all that uncommon for older does to go through (and apparently the end can be somewhat similar to actual labor, sans babies). Poor girl!!


    Caroline, I so agree! I felt really honored. She is SUCH a sweet girl. She's really shy with strangers but once she knows you, she adores you. And I just adore her right back!

    Mandy, that's for sure!! He gets into so much trouble by himself, I can't even imagine what would happen if he had a kid to help him do things! He would probably end up ruling the world. He's such a sassypants!

    Haha, that's funny, Endiku! I have read that about mytonics - that they're more placid...something to do with the fainting gene. I'm just thankful that Atti isn't much into escaping, He does go visit/chase the llamas upon occasion, but always returns to L's pasture before too long.

    Random life half-question/mostly vent [boy-related, aka, feel free to skip] :

    As you know, there is "gentleman friend". Then, there is gentleman-friend's best best friend (he has 2 besties, one is a girl the other -the best best friend- is a guy). In the last few months, things have conspired to "somehow" make it so I guess we could say that I'm friends-friends with gentleman-friend's besties. The guy more than the girl (somehow it seems like I always "end up" sitting next to this guy at church, if I'm not sitting next to gentleman-friend...or I'm sitting between them).
    Anyway, this guy (male best friend of gentleman-friend) has started regularly posting memes/funny articles/stuff he finds on pinterest () on my Facebook wall...
    Initially I thought that gentleman-friend was trying to set me up with this guy (something gentleman-friend is famous for doing...and he's actually really good at it too, haha!), but then this guy was mysteriously unable to come with us when I invited them all to the zoo and it ended up being basically being "getting to know the girl best friend" time - which made sense since female bestie and myself are not really closer than "aquaintences"...and depending on "the plan", you know where I'm going. Among other occurrences.

    Also, 1. I did not know these people really at all before September/October. 2. According to gentleman-friend, both besties "think [I'm] swell." (hahaha) 3. They -the besties- still introduce me to others as "gentleman-friend's friend, Emily"...

    Annnnyway, I'm just not sure how to deal with this guy posting on my wall "all the time" (ie, couple times a month when I only see them all twice a month). I certainly feel loved but confused.

    The most confusing thing is that a week or two ago, gentleman friend posted a link on my FB wall saying that this wall-posting-bestie had found the link and thought I would like it...

    Gentleman-friend and I have never talked feelings beyond "you're super cool" so really, this could be going anywhere. I figure we both have something going on for the other since we've been pretty close for 2 years, and now he's incorporating me into his "group" never know until you know! Haha

    *whacks head against brick wall*

    I'm just worried about being toooo friendly...or not friendly enough... I guess that's just life though! I'm really trying to play it cool and I'll continue to do so...just I guess venting. Haha

    Hey! You are Not getting out of the long ear trade that easily! Sure I'll bring little orneries... no problem, but ya gotta take 8 big hooves and the mouths attached too!
    Sooo... what color babies would you like?

    *whispers quietly*
    Hazel, Hazel, Hazel.... <sigh>
    Ya weren't supposed to throw our good friend Emily right off in the deep end her first go around.
    I told you... little pranks for the newbie were ok, but to take it easy because Atti was going to cause some grey hairs anyway!

    Sorry Emily. I had begun to think perhaps she had absorbed, but was hopeful she hadn't.

    One day...I WILL get a donkey. They are just so stupid cute!! And with those "bangs" they get in the winter...oh my word. I might die of cute.
    Also, Leah, random goat question: do you supplement copper and if so, where+what do you buy? I've been reading that a copper deficiency of some kind might be affecting Hazel's hoof issues...

    Speaking of issues, I'm SO EXCITED about this, Hazel's horns have started really growing and they're growing in NORMAL!!!!!!!
    I think one of them, the shorter one, might be "dead" because it's not really growing noticeably at all but the other one has grown a good inch in the last 2 months or so (I maaaaay be measuring them for "science"... hahaha)!! Super exciting.

    I guess I'm thankful that we have that pregnancy "issue" "out of the way" and behind us. Now all "we" have to do is get Miss Haze's hooves cleared up (finally got the hoof rot in her front hooves gone, only to have it pop up on her backs - turns out that terrible smell her feet had/have is infection between her toes! Luckily that Absorbine Thrush stuff is doing a great job at clearing it up but really, poor dear!!) and then somehow get Atti through this crazy baby stage.
    I can't wait until the summer!! Only 4 more weeks until my Spring Break, then 12 until "school's out, FOR SUMMER!" hahaha
    Then, so much trail riding, Atticus training (I'm hoping to get him+Haze coming on rides with us...Hazel loves getting out and exploring and Atticus NEEDS the exercise - good thing Lacey is pro at ponying, I think ponying the goats will be just her kind of thing), and just all around awesomeness! Haha

    Nothing much to report for today except that Lacey is shedding like a BEAST. She is in full "4 inch long hair EVERYWHERE" mode.

    Also, your mid-week drawing break:

    "The Adventure"

    I'll take long ears and orneries! I get color choices? Woo! What are my options? Lol. We had Nubians when I was a kid. We used them to work gpa's cutting stud on at home, cheaper than cattle and enough to keep him fresh. When we had an orphan foal he had one of the nannies, Bobbie Sue (yep, gpa was an Oakridge Boys fan) for a surrogate mom, it was pretty cute seeing him on his knees nursing a goat. He did get some bad habits from her, never bit or kicked but he did head butt a couple of times I should see if I can't find some of those pictures.

    So every now and then I check in on this thread but I'm too lazy to read it all... I just watched the last 2 videos, and my boyfriend stared at me funny when I started cracking up laughing at Atticus jumping around... So thanks for making me laugh today

    Bummer. I keep openning your thread with hopes that I can update the title to show that the kid is here!

    By "Gentleman friend", I thought you meant the handsome vet you commented on a ways back.

    I can't blame you for being uncomfortable with what feels like some kind of triangle or quadrangle there (I failed geometry).

    If you've been friends with him for two years, I think it's time to clarify the relationship. Just My opinion.
