This week is a combination of goat baby cuteness and *Scream* snakes!
For a quick update on the babies, Chayton and Chaska, we unfortunately lost Chaska a week ago Wednesday. He went steadily downhill since his birth on Monday night and when we wen to check on him on Wednesday, he was already gone. We think it was either a heart defect, or lack of oxygen at birth, which caused internal problems. Sad as it is, such is the way of farm life.
Chayton however, is a little Dennis the Menace. He never sits still unless he is sleeping and he even had the audacity to head-butt our dog, Shep, not once, but twice! Shep actually ran away from him! He is quite the stinker and isn't afraid of anything. He is unusually brave for a goat his age. He even butted our cat, Lilly...and if you've been in the barn for any length of time, you would know that that isn't a smart thing to do. But even she seemed cowed by his relentless energy. He is going to be quite the handful when he gets a little bigger. I have a feeling it will take his mama, me and his two auntie goats to keep track of him :) Somehow I always end up with those kinds of goats...much to my mother's chagrin.
So my favorite photo this week is of that little tiny snake that is almost cute! (according to Lydia, he is a very scary snake, as demonstrated by the last photo)
Though the top photo is my favorite in terms of quality, I laugh heartily every time I look at the last photo. I tried to get a picture of her holding it, but she would have none of it!!
Any favorites this week?
