This post dates back to June 6, 2012

Little Pip loves to be "under" things. First day he found his way under the water container, then the hay container and always "under" mommy.

Both Alika and Keriana are big goats so we chose to breed them with a smaller goat to make sure they had tiny babies to deliver, for the first time. Little Pip's father is Baby Boy a Pygmy goat

Little Pip looks like an exact clone of his mother. Same markings and little black stockings. He will not be as large as his mommy, however because of his mixed breed.

While mother and baby get to know each other, the other goats are out in the enclosure on this clear but cold day.
