Rassy’s bed during the day is where he can stay the warmest! Leo the cat is not pleased he got bumped out of the spot he claimed first…
Guess I just became one of those folks that puts goats in pajamas… Well, to be honest my daughter picked out the outfit.
Rassy continues to gain weight and has become more agile on his feet. Not bad for a goat that couldn’t stand 6 days ago!
Rassy is learning there are all sorts of new experiences outside of the little pen he sleeps in. House cats are something he has approached with trepidation… until he learned that they will run and he can chase them! So now when he is wandering about the house the cats keep an eye out for him.
Rassy the house goat saying HI!
Rassy has made himself at home here in the house. He sleeps in a cat bed in an old dog kennel we moved into the living room. We have been feeding him a combination of powdered goat milk and mother’s milk.
Goats are pretty vocal and Rassy is happy to exercise his lungs! He is starting to respond to his name and happily skips across the floor to whoever is calling him. Such an improvement from his first days when he could not even stand!
On April 3, 2020 we had an afternoon surprise! A premie baby goat! “Rassy” was born weighing in at 3 pounds. He was too weak to stand and was moved into the house to be bottle fed till his weight comes up. We are milking his mom for his needs and her comfort. Stay tuned for the adventures of the “house goat” !
Hello folks! First off let me invite you to the new Blog. It’s my hope to share little things that happen around the ranch and just my life in general. This is a work in progress… the ranch, the blog and my trying to navigate this new site! So hang on and enjoy the ride!
