Hahahahaha I can just imagine this foal/weanling headbutting something it's mad at. Hilarious...but also terrifying.

You are so welcome, amp!!

Aw, man, Caroline! That's sad. Silly Hazel. Pulling allll our legs. :( Now I just want to get an actually pregnant doe so we can actually have babies...but then I don't because from what I've heard babies=so much work.
Oh yes, not handsome vet. Though my cat probablyyyyy needs to get his weight checked...for free, by this vet...
But yeah, I think clarification would be good too... I always almost get my guts together to ask but then I get nervous - he's such a dear friend to me, as a friend, that if he doesn't feel the same way and things change...I would be crushed.
I'd get over it eventually but basically he's one of those people that I never need to feel self conscious around or worry about how he's going to take something I say - he just "gets" what I mean and doesn't have any problem with the stranger things about me... For all that, the stranger I am, the happier he is! And I have very few of those people in my life.
I've been trying to hint and hint and hint (in ways I find to be waaaay out of my comfort zone! Haha) at it (though I am aware that, being a guy, he probably has picked up on zero of those hints) and so far nothing has been weird... But we'll see.
He has been incorporating me more and more into his life in the last few months...maybe he's hinting back and I'm the one not picking it up... THAT would be funny.
But then again, maybe I'm just making their group of 3 besties into 4?....

*where's that wall to bash my head on again...?*

Thanks, Endiku! :) Right!? A pygmy giraffe? Siiiiign me UP too! Haha

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.
Colors... hmm, been working on something special lately... pinks, greens, lavenders, light blues...

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!!!!!!!

Love the little giraffe pic. Ah-door-ahble!
Copper- I'll PM you tomorrow after I pull the info.
Yes, I do, but like many things goat you have to start with the bovine stuff and reduce the dose. Not hard to get... will send details.

That's wonderful about her horn(s.)
Isn't it amazing what good nutrition can do?
You are doing such a great job with these two for a newbie, I just may have to load up those long ears and sail past MHQ's and right on home to OR with them. Dig too. He'd love to meet his sista!
Don't worry MHQ... I'll drop of the goats and grab up whatever I'm going to deliver to Fly.
*Ahem* That is if Mr. Woodstock doesn't open doors on moving trailers!

Thanks Leah! That would be great! :)
Aw, thanks. You know I would not be doing nearly as well (actually, probably wouldn't have even brought them home!) without your help, so props to you too!! :)
They're such a reward in and of themselves. I was watching videos of them when they first came "home" and Hazel seems like she has so much more life now!! Helping "old" animals age backwards is one of my absolutely most favorite things ever. My lesson horse when I was a kid got me addicted to that! Allll his fault.

Hahaha amp, you're funny.
First, there's gentleman-friend and his best friend who are the current "issue" - different than the cute vet (just to get them all straight).
The cute vet is my cat's vet who I met for the first time when I took my cat in for a check-up.
We had had to switch vets, thanks to Booth's previous vet going down the sketchy road.
This new vet turned out to be not all that much older than me and HIGHLY attractive. Also, my cat "liked" him (ie, did not die of fright/turn feral - 2 of his favorite "in a jam" responses). Anyway, he was stumbling alllll over himself (I don't think he expected to find someone about his age in the exam room, with a cat named "Booth Reginald"...hahaha) and it was pretty much the cutest ever.
He kept making up reasons why I needed to come back in with Booth very soon and my favorite was "to weigh Booth" since I OBVIOUSLY cannot just use an everyday scale, weigh myself, then hold Booth and weigh us, then subtract my weight...right?

This all seems like a James Herriot sort of story, as I sit here catching up on my lovelies while drinking hot tea.
Hazel is a bad girl! Yummy men are just that, yummy. Met my hubby at the vet clinic where I worked. Hunky firefighter plus 128 lb shepherd licking my toes (the dog not the hunk) equaled head over heals still 16 years later.
I asked him finally after 15 trips with no real there something you need to ask me, he he he!!

Take the cat into the vet. Go see the handsome vet again. Tell your GF (Gentleman Friend) about the visit to the "handsome" vet, and be sure to say how handsome he was. See what the reaction is.

M would say one of each color of the rainbow.

He's rotten enough and houdini enough that's a possibility, especially if there were foodstuffs (like his pears you'll be stealing) in it!

Hahaha, you guyssss. :)

I don't have time right now to speak to everything above^ so I'll just throw this adorable picture at you.

Lacey was grooming Atticus exactly like a dog who loves cats might groom a cat. Atticus was walking back and forth under her nose and she was rubbing his back with her nose (and his face, hahaha).

Then he tried to head butt her face... THAT was hilarious. I'll post those later. :)

But for now:
