New Goat - two down, 12 to go!

Another new goat! Yay! And this time it is my favorite yearling girl Violet that had the baby. It is a boy and when he gets his ear tag it will be number 32, coincidentally the same number as my race car in Germany that was called the Racing Ace - so this little guy gets the Ace name!

She was pretty hungry, so I brought her some grain. It has been a couple of hours since I saw them and I need to go check so I will bring her some more and some hay, if I can sneak it past the other girls. They are pretty smart.

This is an update photo of Clover, the first baby goat. She is pretty rambunctious and needs some friends to chase around with. Ace is the first of many who will give her some friends and get her to leave the other Mommas alone. 
The goat on the left is her Momma Flower and the one on the right is my "other" Violet who is one of the rescued goats. She is about five years old and ready to explode with multiple babies. She just keeps getting bigger and bigger. She has a sore foot and the weight makes it even worse. I make the other goats wait for feed until she catches up though. Well, time to check on Ace.
