Our sweet little Valentines Day present is doing well. She seems to be putting on some weight, although she is remarkably smaller compared to my Saanan nanny goat babies. I tend to be overly alarmed with every detail when it comes to babies but she is still doing well.
We are building a new “play pen” for nannies with babies. Hopefully it will be ready for them to venture into soon. I can’t wait for the typical baby goat playful acrobatics! I hope I can catch her in the act on video for you all!
This video is a little sad because it shows the other twin baby goat that was still born. The reason I’m showing this video is to demonstrate how even these young pups understand instinctively that small creatures need protection. This pup does not quite understand that the baby goat is already dead, but he knows it’s sick or hurt and needs to be protected. He keeps the horse, the Billy goat and all the other dogs away from it. Gently licking it and nudging it to try waking it up. He only allows ME to tend to the frail little body. A VERY intelligent dog right here.
