First, why two dogs are better then one.


Then the usual look and hyperness. :p







And, we got goat kids. :D

Meet the 'rents here: http://www.bluesummers.net/does.html

The babies, Alex and Rider (tell me if you get the reference)



Both have gorgeous blue eyes


We also got a girl, Sabina, out of Dalia. But we haven't got that great of picks yet lol. I'll update later.

And we're currently at 81°F with humidity at 42%. I think I'm going to just melt and get it over with, sounds good to you guys?

D thinks their ears are good for licking. :rolleyes: 'Lo was unnerved for like three days, she'd pace around them whining, and jump back if they came to forward.

I think they smelled to much like their mum, she's a vile thing and will slam dogs HARD. 'Lo got hit once, and now she never legs Bridge around her lol.

'a goat' isn't a very good idea though, btw. :) They're very very pack oriented, more then dogs by far. They NEED company, or they'll get super depressed. You want at least two together. We got two boys (one 'weather' meaning fixed, he's the floating head in the sites banner) and our three girls in another pen.

And chickens are seriously fun. Try to get at least a few pet breeds too, as good layers tend to be more aggressive and hence less friendly. But it's great to have a few that wanna be held and come to their names lol. They make better pets then most people would believe.

Our Chickens are fun to watch, have 5 - Gertie, Daphne, Priscilla, Marjorie and Joyce! unfortunately they don't like being handled but will run to you and eat out of our hands - will be interesting seeing what pup makes of them! 4 are silkies -(fluffy looking ones) and ones a booted bantam (feathered feet), thought i'd just share! your goats look sweet (as do the dogs of course).

Fab photos and love the new additions! :)

We have four chickens, all lovely girls and great layers! Goats would be good to keep the lawn trim although I am not sure Daisy would be keen. :rolleyes: We have lovely sunny spring weather here at the moment, hoping it lasts as the Easter hols start here next week :D

Sound like you got a great flock Dawn! We got two main packs ourselves, one with just two birds, a blue silk (silkie XD)and a golden silk cross (urooj) and in the other pen we got two bared rock look alikes (cloud and boots) three delawares (kiwi, lark, and sparrow) and one mutt called paige.

Thanks Ali & Madelein! :) How cold is it where you are right now?

Thank you Clare. :D

Sadly Mo they won't stay quite that small, but somewhere around 35 40 pounds isn't to hard to find. Some breeds do go smaller too.

Sarah, goats are actually quite bad about being lawn mowers lol. They love brush like bushes and trees, and will only really graze (they prefer to nibble) if they're quite hungry.

Sorry only just seen this - it wasn't too cold for most of this week and has even reached the 20s but today it is cold (about 8c), wet and windy :( Will be glad when summer is here but in England it doesn't last very long :( x

Thanks all! :hug:

It's all good Ali & Madeleine, I've done the same soo many times lol. I wouldn't mind 8c all of that much, but the wet too... that doesn't sound fun at all. I hope it warms up again soon! And that it goes against the norm, and stays warm for longer then usual. :D
