    Yes,I bonded with Lumi because she was truly my "baby" with the bottle feeding and all. She followed me like a puppy from the day I brought her home. I was her "mama" without a doubt.

    The two little ones are not quite as personable toward humans and right now Krimpet is asserting her dominance when the even begin to even consider approaching us. Silly, jealous goat. :p But she'll come around and so will they. I always bring the goats home when I have a long weekend so I can spend lots of time with them and observing them. I'm excited to see them settle in and learn their personalities!

    The wether I'm getting is a very sweet little boy. I'm hoping my mom (she lives with us, is 89 and has dementia...thankfully slow progressing) will take to him. She was VERY attached to Lumi and was upset when she learned about her passing. She even said that was "her goat!" :)
