assuming nap position

I took this yesterday morning, when Tsuga's little black girl was having breakfast (again) and her little grey girl was settling for (another) nap. Hope it makes you smile!

Today before sun-up, I was watching the goatcam and laughing like a loon. Both babies were bouncing around, full of beans. It is astonishing how quickly their coordination develops, literally from the moment they are born. These first couple of days are mind-boggling, every time.

It's a rainy, raw morning, but all is well in the cozy barn.


By the way:
if anyone has advice about posting videos, please let me know in a comment or email. I tried going direct-to-blogger using the video link in the editing bar, but after loading this video the quality was so poor I took it down immediately. Not entirely comfortable about putting my goats on YouTube, but so far it's the only solution I've come up with. And I'm still not satisfied with the quality; the original is quite sharp.
Any advice appreciated!

ETA: I just switched the little player button to HD and watched it fullscreen. I recommend this if you want to see every wavy little hair on that grey kid. And I'm pretty sure you do  :)



  1. Oh, KNOW I love the videos of your kidlets!!!!! I was hoping from the title of your post, it was YOU that got the nap. Happy Monday, Quinn - looking forward to more babies! XOXO

  2. Thank you for brightening up a rainy day! Wonderful video. Its so cute the way the gray one has to get her position just so.

  3. Very cute little kiddies - thanks for the smile at the end of my stupidly busy day...

  4. I love how arranges her feet just right! And that wonderful little yell.

  5. OK, That's way off the cuteometer!

  6. Aw, geez, now I"m feeling all maternal. Gotta fall right in love with those sweet little light-coloured ears. Do they have names yet?

    1. Not yet! I'm hoping it will be dry enough to take Piper for a walk tomorrow, so I can look for inspiration in the form of new plant growth in the woods. Every goat here has been named for something growing when they were born, and it has to be something that doesn't sound like any other goat name...gets more challenging every year!

  7. Oh my goodness - so very very cute!!!
