Fast go thru to see all that I have missed - you have been prolific (I love that the bird head showed up in We were born human)...can you do me a quick favor and leave me the name of that photoshop book? I have set an intention of actually starting to work at least 15 minutes a day on learning how instead of being so jealous of all your beautiful work.
I'll be back to read closer and watch the muvees - I love that you have goats. Love iT
oh yeah - and sending stuff: I thought it was great and you were the one who first showed me the generosity of bloggers. I'm glad you asked for my address. It was and remains a beautiful reminder of abundance!

Be very careful.

I was writing pretty good thought provoking southern prose a mere few months ago. Those little bastards will completely take over your blog. My entire blog is about nothin' but goats anymore. A bunch of caprine prima donnas the lot of them.

Four ounces! Bitty little goatie! My little piggies were doing 20 oz a day the first four days. 60 oz a day, weeks 2 and three...and now I'm starting to wean them back so I can have more milk for myself.

Rosie, when I saw that 'be very careful,' I panicked--something else bad was going to happen--taking over my life/blog I can handle--I have three human kids, too, who'd like to do exactly the same thing.

I talked to someone who has a lot of goats, and she said it was good to have them "with the herd" as much as possible, which is great, since that means I don't have to take little Phoenix with me everywhere I go.

Oh, and Tammy, the books are by Katrin Eismann and are called Photoshop Restoration and Retouching and Photoshop Masking and Compositing. There are links for them at the top left of my blog.

Yes, they need to identify themselves as goats. Once Phoenix is strong enough, it's good for him to spend time with the herd, particularly with his brother. It's not as big of a problem with little guys like Pygmies, but my guys top out at around 150 pounds. Freaky Didi was bottle raised and she tries to sneak in the house all the time...and doesn't understand why I don't want her enormous goat butt indoors. Bottle raising can make them overly friendly, so if you can balance that with letting them be with the herd, it does help.

OMG, they're so fast! IS that a girl goat or a boy goat? K

`They're both boy goats. The little doe died.

Yesterday morning my husband came back into the bedroom after getting up and said, deadpan, "There is a goat standing on top of the couch in the livingroom looking out the front window. I'm assuming that's not where he's supposed to be?"

Phoenix had climbed out of his box in the kitchen. So last night he slept in his box in the laundry room with the door shut. I'm not sure if I could let him sleep in the barn with his mom and brother or not. I think that would be better for him and easier on my furniture!
