New neighbors

We got a call on Sunday that our neighbors needed some weekday help with one of their new baby goats. Twins had been born and one of the goats wasn't able to stand up on his own legs to feed. Would our eleven-year-old be willing to come down each day at noon to do a feeding? Oh, yeah. She is willing. Thrilled. Filled with joy each day as she counts down to noon.

And...she is now recruiting to own goats, of course.

Happy girl. Happy goat.

Not to be left out simply because he can feed himself, this one tried to help himself to the boot.

An extra pair of hands are helpful to babysit the two other babies while she feeds Blackie. The good news today was that Blackie was standing, however weakly, on all four legs. Soon, we hope, he'll be feeding himself. The hard work is paying off.
