Joie and Storm's babies are two weeks old

well, the babies are now two weeks old. Growing fast and won't stay still so getting good pics is nearly impossible. This group of babies are the sweetest babies I've ever had. I really am enjoying spending time with them. OF course, that friendliness also has it's drawbacks - hard to get pics when they are snuggling in your lap - AH the bliss!!!!
the only shot of Tinkerbelle since she spend nearly the whole photo shoot in my lap. She loves to be scratched and her shoulders. She stands real still and in show stance with her eyes closed. I need to bring an assistant to get the pics while I'm scratching!
Magellen is probably the least friendly but still, he will take a break from playing to get some lovin'. Actually he's friendly enough, just BUSY!!! He's definitely living up to his name - he is the explorer of the crew - always busy poking his nose somewhere!!! Funny, when he was born I didn't think much of him but he's turning into quite the good looking little guy. He's got great body capacity and seems to have the nicesest chest. He even looks to have good length though his brother still has him beat there!
None of these pics really captures how good looking Columbus is. He's really got a long body, nice width between the hocks. Good dairy character and angularity.
A tad narrower than his brother but still not bad and a nice long neck and legs. All the babies have nice strait backs and from what I can see so far good feet and legs.
As I was sitting out in the pen playing with the babies I noticed that with two weeks until kidding Auntie Tirzah has a nice start to her FF udder.
I think this will be a lovely udder but darn, I have to wait about 2 more weeks to see it.
Susanna and I want to keep a doe kid from Tirzah and Storm so we are hoping she gives us

Awww, it seems so long ago that my little goat wethers, Pete and Reggie, were so tiny. They'll be a year old next week. They are still cute as the dickens, though! You've got some gorgeous goats!
