LOL! Sorry, a tussle. They usually don't like the idea of being sprayed and they try to run. If you try to restrain them, they want to really wrestle.

"The term Goat rodeo or goat rope refers to an especially chaotic situation, typically in a corporate or bureaucratic setting." Wikipedia

It's called "foal mouth" and they're basically saying, "I"m just a baby, please don't eat me.".

I love it so much. It's so sweet.

How is everyone's baby's doing now that they have been around for a month or more.

I love it. Melody is always so happy to see me. she nickers when she sees me outside. Her mama is such a great relaxed mama.

I try to take them for a walk every day. I have some obstacles in my arena. Her mama are great at them, so its a great example for Mel. She walked over a bridge and poles yesterday.

What do you all do with your mama and baby.

I have found some small deflated balls that I have put in the stall with them. sometimes, during planting season, I throw one of those cardboard trays in the stall. I did buy a jolly ball and put in the out door pasture.

She is super at letting me pick her feet from one side~you know the racehorse way or the natural horseman way. Of course I do her mama's first.

I have hosed off mama and spray Mel (by accident~not). She isn't quite sure about it, the feeling of being wet is new to her too.

I'm just trying to give her as many experiences as I can.

Can you ride your mare (at the walk) and have the baby follow?
