Goat Update

Helen is fully on her feet now, playing and active, no signs of her early trouble with the birth canal. And after days of holding Chrysanthemum down- as in shoved against the fence two feet in the air- so Marion could nurse, Marion has finally been re-accepted. The game changer was sticking my fingers in Chrysanthemum's mouth and wiping the spit all over Marion (and thanking Heaven that Miss C. isn't a biter) so now Marion smells just right to her Mom. Funny no one I have seen mentioned that, although it is common knowledge the mothers can "loose" the scent of their kid. 

Helen and Sylvie

Helen loves leap frog.
Serious obsession. 
She is training for the Nationals already.

The doeling Trio

Miss Independent-
Marion doesn't believe in sharing personal space, 
even before Chrysanthemum "forgot" her smell.
Possibly contributing factor, so can't totally blame the Mom.
Marion just came out ready to rock and roll, no slowing her down.
Also Chrysanthemum is pretty depressed about the gloomy weather when I took this,
which is kinna funny. It was even worse in the other pics.

Whole crew minus Deirdre-
Anemone's kid(s) are included, just still in her tummy.

And Miss Fritha, happy with all the hustle and bustle.
