The Oasis Homestead LGD family is doing fantastic since the move. They seem to really love their new enclosure. My momma and poppa dogs are even willingly staying inside it. This is a major feat and to me it means they feel completely content inside there.
I am pleased to report all the dogs were amazingly attentive, yet respectful during the birth of my first baby goat at the new place. Genius was especially concerned that nobody gets too close to momma goat and baby for the first few days. Momma dog (Naucelle), with her usual calming manner, encouraged baby goat to come play out from underneath the cedar tree where it was hiding.
Baby goat is quite confident now. Playing, bouncing, climbing and romping as only kid goats can do! He stands directly on billy and leaps over chickens, climbs inside the feeder and rolls around over tuffs of spilled hay. He’s quite happy!
The other nanny goats are due to kid soon and judging by their giant bellies, should deliver twins each. I feel completely confident that all my dogs will behave beautifully during kidding time. It is such a relief to know my LGD’s are protecting all my animals.
