Louise the goat had her kid!
I a sure it comes as no surprise to anyone that it is a buckling.
Or that it is a cowgoat.
He came around 11PM so the publicist couldn't take photos until today.
The little guy was taking a drink when she went in this morning.
Louise was not at all happy about staying in the barn like the publicist usually does when a kid is first born. She was shaking and maaaaing and very upset so the publicist brought them down to my pen. That way they wouldn't have to worry about all of the other goats trying to surround him. Of course I wanted to lick him.
Just a little.
But Louise wouldn't let me.
Thelma and Alex weren't sure what to make of him.
He is very cute, isn't he?
All kids are cute.
He has three black legs, one white leg, three white socks and one black sock.
The publicist hasn't named him yet
She says he looks a bit like a harlequin clown.
Someone else suggested he looked like a jester.
He looks a touch surprised at that suggestion, doesn't he?
So she is going to leave it to you all - is he Harlequin (Harley for short)?
Or is he Jester (Jessie for short)?
Louise really doesn't care. If she wants him she just calls, "maaaaaaaaaaaa!"
