New Arrivals Today - Flower and Dragon

After spending almost two years with the Schooling family in Escondido, these two have found their way up to Ramona where they have a nice big pasture to run and play in. Both were bottle fed babies and have brough lots of joy to the kids who would come to Catherine's horse camp.

Catherine told me that the kids had as much fun with the goats as they did learing to ride the horses. Even though these guys have horns, they are used to being around children and I haven't seen them use their horns for anything but scratching their backs.
While I was taking pictures Dragon was very curious about the camera and got close to check it out. Made for a really nice picture. Dragon and Flower (both boys) enjoy watching the horses in the pasture and the horses are very curious about them.
Evening feeding time and I got the chance to take a picture while the sun was setting. While Flower in interested in what I am doing, Dragon loves watching all the horses.

We haven't introduced them to George, Gracie and Griffin yet. We will let them settle in a little more before the get to meet the rest of the goats.

For Jamie

Those of you who have been following the blog will remember that I posted a picture of Prince Wm nursing from Bella who is not him mom. Bella has not had a foal for at least three years maybe longer. So the sight of that happening was a shocker for all of us.

It certainly showed us even though Prince Wm has been away from his mother for about five months (they sold her when he was one month old) he still isn't over his desire to nurse and be close to a mother figure. Bella has alway been good with the young horses that have been here - especially Dr. Bill.

I wanted to post these two pictures of Bella and Prince Wm because I thought they both spoke volumes. They do almost look like mother and son.

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter!
