The first night we were here at Leonard Creek a mama goat had three baby goats, it turned out that she only had enough milk for two babies and was pretty much ignoring the third. We were given the third to look after and feed from a bottle. At first she lived in a box in our bathroom, where it is nice and warm and the dogs couldn't pester her. She started out pretty weak, but after sucking down a bunch of milk she livened up and is now a rambunctious little kid who likes chewing on power cords and shorts. She still sleeps in her box and hangs out in it when we leave the house, but other than that she has become quite the little house goat - we even have her house trained. We decided to name her Boddington (after the beer, because of her color) - we call her Bodie for short. She is such a sweet goat, she loves being with people and being the center of attention. Her favorite activity is jumping on the couch and attempting an aerial 360 spin as she leaps back off. Right now she is laying next to me on the sofa trying to sabotage the writing of this post. I waited to post about her because I wanted to make sure she was healthy and happy before doing so, I didn't want to have to post bad news if things didn't go well for her.
Here are some pictures of our baby goat Bodie... such a cutie pie!
