Dexter did find one one night while we were parking the car. He was carrying it around in his mouth. Ugh! I'd think they wouldn't taste very good. He dropped it but I think it may have been hurt, Dexter isn't very careful sometimes.
But we have several little ones up at the pool. Sometimes in the pool. Maybe its a 'she'?
This week we made some goat cookies for our new babies. They are still awfully shy and don't want us to touch them yet. That will have
to change soon if we are going to be able to comb out the cashmere when they start to shed their fiber in the spring. They have to be able to stand and let us comb them, sometimes for quite a while.
The other cashmeres we had were too friendly and would overwhelm me when I went into their pen. They were very jealous and wanted to be the only one who got any attention. These guys don't seem quite so needy but they are starting to eat out of our hands, that is if we have the right treats for them.
Animal crackers seem to be the favorite, so far.
Remember that picture I took of them in the pen right after we got them? All green and tall, lush grass? Well, check out the pen now. It sure doesn't take them long to learn to like that grass.
They have eaten this down practically to the dirt in some places. Fortunately, we are supposed to be getting around 4-5 days of rain this week. I hope it greens up a little, at least.
These guys are so funny, they love chasing each other around in the pen, jumping up on or over the upside down wash tub I sit on when I'm out there.
And the picture at the very top of the blog was Smoky getting too nosy about my camera when I was feeding him this morning. Ha!
