Here are the ladies! Soaking up the sun on the boardwalk; they usually jump right up when they see us coming, expecting treats and whatnot. Not today! It's supposed to get to 70 degrees today and you can tell that makes these ladies very happy!

This is Aunt Penelope. She was the first goat we brought home and we believe her to be 10 or 11 years old. Big Mama and Penelope have the same sire and were raised together as breeding pygmy's. Aunt Penelope's last pregnancy ended badly so she, just like me, is no longer able to bear children. We don't mind though because we love her and weren't planning on breeding her anyway!

This lovely lady is Big Mama. Big Mama is Arwen's mom. We got Arwen a year before we adopted her mom and Mama's a little standoffish. We believe her to 10 or 11 years old as well. She's very loving with Arwen and at this time, she's trying to teach Arwen how to head butt. It's very sweet to watch.

And this is Arwen! Arwen is full of life and vigor. She not afraid to come and rub her head along your legs, begging for a scratch. Arwen had polio when she was just a few months old and we were worried we were going to loose her. She's my special lady and we all love her dearly.
