It is not the most ideal situation for goats to be kept with sheep because of their nutritional requirements being different, but it is the only solution at this time. Raven was one of Weezie's tiny twins born this summer. He had a rough start on life, but got lots of love from my son and I, and that, along with some vitamin shots, helped get him on track. He is still tiny for his age, but not in his mind. He has been cohabiting with the rabbit, Petey, but Petey's diet is slightly richer than a young male goat should have, so now that he is big enough not to get through the wire fence, he has moved in with the boys. The boys were interested in him to see if by chance he might be female, but no such luck for them. Raven was frightened since his size is a tenth of Walter's and there also are quite a few ram lambs, all of which are very gentle. There are also the two goats, Leo and Colby Junior, the Angora bucks, but Leo is going to the females at the end of the month. I am quite sure Colby, who is a kid from earlier this year, and Raven will become good friends once Leo is gone. Poor little Raven! When I went to see how he was doing, he ran to me. I picked him up and cuddled him and he put his little head on my chest with his tiny heart beating so fast through his chest against me. He is a sweet heart.
