Goat Picture Spam!

 It was an absolutely gorgeous day yesterday so after work we let Garnet, Topaz, Amethyst and Apatite out in the front yard to browse while Chrome grazed.  They had a blast! I enjoyed two hours of just watching them, taking photos, cuddling them, etc.  It was a great evening.  Enjoy the photo spam

Garnet looks ready to pop!  She loved those muscadines!

The kids were a bit hesitant because they didn't realize there were adult goats out.  They haven't been out with Garnet and Topaz before.  Once they realized they had company they were a lot more confident and explored a lot more of the yard than they ever have before.  They used to stick close to the barn because Amethyst wanted her mom. Coral isn't allowed out because she's impossible to catch if she's loose.

Apatite is growing SO much!!  He's now just over five months old and is separated from Amethyst because I don't want her getting pregnant while she's a baby.  Yes it can happen with goats. They are fertile at a very young age.

Apatite saying hi to Jasper.  Jasper has gotten huge!!  I need to get pictures of him for you guys.

 Jasper rubbing against the fence.

This is why Apatite can't be with Amethyst.  He's already very bucky!  Don't worry I distracted them and he didn't try it again.  He was too distracted with Topaz and Garnet because he's never met them.

 App pausing for a drink.

 My miss priss.  She is so cute!

Amethyst innocently sniffing Topaz and getting told to back off.  Don't worry, she totally deserves it.  She makes a total pest of herself.

 More attitude.  She loves head butting.

Apatite was very interested in the girls.  He doesn't understand that they are pregnant and not interested in his advances lol.

 Topaz's expression is priceless.

Poor Garnet.  She looks so uncomfortable.  They are going to have their babies soon.  Their due dates are around June 19th.

 Topaz bailing out because App won't leave her alone.

 Amethyst finally got the guts to approach Jackal.  She's been terrified of him up until now.

 Hubby hanging on to Apatite, so the girls can have a break.  Look how big he's gotten!

 I LOVE her ears!

 Look at that belly!!  How many babies do you think she'll have?

 She actually managed to heft herself up onto the fence to eat.  It sagged so bad!

 I love my pretty girl.

 Hubby mentioned her markings make her look like she's always smiling.... it does!  So cute!


 This is my favorite of Amethyst for the day.  She is so gorgeous.

 She finally stopped zooming around and started browsing.

 She tried to climb the tree too lol.

It was hilarious because Chrome snorted and it startled Apatite.  He tried to bolt, but the myotonia set in and he staggered off.  This was the only picture I managed to get.  He didn't fall over though.  He was so angry, he came back to us bleating and in a huff.

Jasper is really starting to fill out.  He looks enormous in this photo because Rocky is quite a distance behind him, but you can see how broad he is even if the scale is off a bit.

 Apatite went straight back to making a nuisance of himself.

 When the does headbutt him, he doesn't back down!  He's a stout little guy already!

Compare how big they are now to.... how tiny they were when we first brought Apatite home!

 They met the cat too.  OrangeJello hissed at them and they backed off before it came to blows.

 Garnet using the fence to chew on her leg.

 That belly!

 I love this picture of App.  He's so handsome!

That face is so adorable!

 This really shows how big he's gotten.
Amethyst was so funny, trying to eat a weed, but kept walking and got too close to it.

 He was calling to the girls.  Super cute!

 Love her expression.  Did you notice Apatite has a half mustache on the same side an Am??

 Well, that's all for now.  Sorry to bog your computers down with soooo many pictures, but I took almost three hundred and it was so hard to narrow them down hehe.  I hope you enjoyed seeing them as much as I enjoyed watching them play yesterday.
