Liam and the Livestock

Liam has been spending some time with me this week feeding the livestock.  Since the young goats are skittish, they won't run him over in their zeal to get to the food like the adult nanny goats do.  So, I let him feed the little ones by himself.

They are anxious to dive in, but don't want to get too close to Liam.

These are the last three young 'uns from the spring kidding.  They are reserved for Liam's other grandparents and will be moving to their new home soon.  The grey one is a cross from a Kiko doe and our Nubian sire, Billy.  The other two are from two different Boer mothers crossed, again, with Billy.

Then it's on to the guinea coop.

Liam made sure that I promised to let him feed the guineas "by himself" before we even got out there.  As long as they go to the back of the coop so they can't fly out when we open the door, I'm fine with Liam taking over the feeding duties.
