Goat Kid Photo Overload! Babies first day out!

We let the kids out in the yard for the first time!!  
This is them leaving the barn for the first time.
So cute!

We had so much fun with the babies out in the yard. :D Some of these are cell phone pictures so excuse the photo quality...

 Topaz says these cherry leaves are yummy!!

 This is why taking pictures of goat kids is so difficult!  I'm being mobbed!!

 Topaz became the babysitter because Garnet went off on her own lol.

 I love Tanzanite's ears!  They are so huge hehe.

Little Red (Andesine?) was zooming around everywhere.  It was so hard to get good pictures of her running around, but I got a couple of cute ones.

 Jackal was so cute laying in the background keeping a careful eye on the babies.

The cats are always hanging around too.  ShadowCat walked right passed the babies and didn't seem concerned with them at all.

 This was hilarious.  He just launched himself at Tanzanite hehe.

 Topaz's son looking so cute!

Topaz walked right between us when I was trying to get Little Red's antics on camera.  This would have been such an awesome bucking pictures.  So cute!

 Tanzanite mobbed me.

 Tanzanite standing on my leg while the boys checked her out.

 LOL!  I got a good one finally!  She was full of herself!

 Tanzanite was chewing on Little Red's tail hehe. Adorable!

This one was funny!  Garnet's son was squishing Topaz's son into the tree.  He didn't hurt him.  They were just playing.

 She is so pretty!

 Tanzanite scratching an itch.

 Jackal finally went in for a polite meet and greet.  So cute!

 Pretty Tanzanite!

 Cute little boy!

You can see Jasper in the background, watching his kids.

Poor Tanzanite was trying to take a nap, but Little Red decided to walk all over her.  Kids are so mean to each other hehe.

 Little Red posing.  She is such a chunky girl.  She weighs the most between the four of them.

 My adorable Tanzanite.

 My gorgeous girls.

 Tanzy is a climber for sure!

 She has the sweetest face!

I LOVE this next sequence of pictures.  Little Red saw Jackal laying under the plum tree and she was checking him out.  She was on full alert, posing like a big girl with her ruff up and everything.

 Cautiously approaching.

Making herself look big.  She is posing just like a show Boer goat.  She is impressive looking already even at a week old.  She is going to be a gorgeous girl when she's grown.  I know it's hard to tell when they are babies, but I wouldn't doubt that she ends up being our nicest doe, regarding conformation.
 A slow approach.

 Stopping to stare at him again.

 I love the way she carries herself.

She finally slipped quickly around Jackal.  You can see his head in the bottom right corner lol.  She was very brave and cute.

 Topaz's handsome boy.

 I love her little belly spot.

 Garnet's boy has such a cute face!  I love little blaze faces.

 Both boys are so handsome.

Garnet and Topaz hadn't seen each other in a while, so they had to sort out the pecking order.  It was fun to watch.  They were really going at it headbutting each other.

 Topaz was rearing up to get maximum power behind her head butts.

 During a lull in the fight Garnet chewed on Topaz's horn lol.

They are so cute.  I'm glad they don't fight with the intention of actually hurting each other like bucks do during rutting season.  They sorted it out quickly and moved on.  We all had fun out in the yard.  The babies wore themselves out playing hard.  :)  I'll update again when I can.
