Bonding of Bread

Sarah goat (white goat with brown sox and black mask) took a big step forward in her trust of humans today...She came forward and jumped up on hubby to get some bread...Sarah came from a large herd situation (30+) and was only ever handled to get shots, so was very wary when she arrived mid Dec.
She still backed off when hubby tried to pet her head, but this is was still a big step.

Boots and Deenie however have no fear of humans and that can pose a whole different set of challenges, like when a 4yr old has goat treats and trips over her own feet.

Those are some good looking goaties.

Yes, it's dangerous to have treats for the goaties and then fall down. Heck, it's dangerous to stand up and walk with treats!

They know your good people. Before long I bet you will be petting her. My animals will run me down for treats.

Your husband reminds me of a Shepherd tending his flock! Tenderly feeding each of his herd with individual care. Precious!!!
