Well Trained

18 Nov

I have two well-trained little girls.

Venus and Chiffon

Or maybe they’ve trained me.  Whenever Chiffon and Venus see me, they are ready to go into the milk room for some sweet feed.

I do let them go in to eat every afternoon because they were both so sick with the copper deficiency.  Being a bottle kid, Venus is a sweetie.

Chiffon is getting a lot calmer; although, she still doesn’t want me to touch her if she’s not in the milk room eating.  You can tell she’s not at all thin anymore.  That’s a good thing.  I like my goats on the fluffy side.

I’ve suggested she invite her twin sister Marge in to eat too.

Because if I talk to Marge, I get the goat-stare-of-death, and she quickly walks away.

Maybe she knows that she’s still on my list to be sold.

The Keepers

I’ve tried.  I swear I’ve tried to get Joy to like me, but I admit defeat.

I blame her wild, wild, dad, Xerxes.

She’s so wild, I can’t even catch her to wean her so that I can milk her maa.

Zinnia

That means, she’s been moved to my not keeping you because I’m tired of goats I can’t work with list.

Joy

Maybe I should keep Vinnie’s last daughter instead.  Venus is nice.

I am still planning on keeping Bubbles.  She is friendly and easy to work with.

I am also still planning on keeping Moira.  She’s not quite a friendly, but I can pet her and she will hopefully continue to tame down.

She likes food, so that is a plus.

I’m also thinking that I might keep Penelope.

She is another sweet, sweet girl who is cute.

After getting the copper capsule, she’s really looking good now.
