Thank Goodness for Ear Tags!


They all look alike if you ask me. Their moms tell who their own lambs are by sniffing their bums. Since I don't have that keen sense of smell, nor am I about to get down on my hands and knees to sniff backsides, ear tags tell me who's who. Today was such a beautiful, sunny day all the youngins decided to take a nap in the sun. Just moments before I snapped the picture the goat kids were among the group. But being typical goats they couldn't stand that they weren't causing trouble so when they saw me kneel down with the camera they jumped up and ran to help me take the picture, followed by one of the bottle lambs. Just like my own kids, they can never hold still long enough to capture the moment.

I have been able to sneak out occasionally and get all the kids and lambs sleeping together but they usually hear something and make a beeline for us!! I agree lambs are hard to tell apart if they are all one color... I have a few that are different.
