All Are Watching
As I tried to help Wynonna with her nerves about being a new Mom we are still not over the hump. Wynonna will stand and do anything the wee one wants as long as I am there but if I leave it is like a race track in that pen. Wee One chasing and Wynonna running. This is still going on today so that means we are still not out of the woods. Many of you have asked why is she doing this and the only way I can explain it like this - many times bottle kids do not think of themselves Goats... Try as I may I am not a goat - No Eye Rolling or Giggling... So there is a part of their learning that seems to be lost and many times that means when they give birth. Not to say they can not be great Mom's but it does happen - heck it happens when some animals raise their own without any intervention. So I have learned tons of tricks to work with this and I will keep on trying to get Wynonna to settle but for now I am in the barn to make sure that the Wee One eats and stays warm. NO I will not bring it in the house unless I have no other choice and those choices are Mom trying to hurt her, Mom gets ill or baby gets ill. Short of that I will be a goat in the barn. It is my favorite place to be in the world so I am not upset or mad. Oh and for those who are wondering "When is she going to sleep?" I must say I sleep just fine sitting on the ground, leaning against the wall with everyone chewing, farting and breathing loudly. I never mind having animals sitting and sleeping on me or me leaning on them. The best part is I get to be a Goat Jungle Gym for tiny little happy feet.....
Another great perk of a night like this is how many get Llama Lullaby's sung to them through the night and as morning breaks? Me that's who !
