There seems to be no shortage of cute around the farm this week.
Yesterday was nursery cleaning day. Becky and I mucked out the goat house and replaced the bedding with fresh clean hay. While we cleaned, the new kids played in the snow and Maddie (my Newfie) sat longingly at the gate to the goat pen.
Now, if you know anything about Newfies, you know that they are by nature gentle and extremely tolerant. They make the perfect babysitters for just about any species.....especially baby goats. She came into the goat yard and just sat and waited....watching the kids running and jumping all around.
Eventually the kids' curiosity got the best of them and they came over to check out this newcomer to their pen.
Maddie sat perfectly still while they sniffed her.
She was so pleased with these new little friends... that is until Mama Missy decided enough was enough. Missy marched over to Maddie and head butted her.
What a magical time!
