Reindeer Games

No new babies to report, at least as of noon when I snuck away from the office to check. The four babies we have were doing some pretty adorable things though. Thought you might like to see these.

Kids spend a lot of time butting heads. Actually, they don't really butt heads, they sort of push each other around with their heads. They are sort of "play fighting", mimicking the behavior of adults. Except that they haven't seen the adults butting heads so it's all instinct.

Two against one.



Basil is just a week or so younger than the others but he didn't seem to understand the game. He thinks there is a group hug going on and wants in on it. I probably shouldn't have a favorite but I do and it's Basil.



Isn't he the cutest thing? Look at that face!
There is also a fair amount of smooching going on.

The latest issue of National Geographic has an article about animal intelligence. One thing they mention is sheep's ability to recognize and recall faces, both sheep and human, even after several years. Do goats have the same ability? And are you able to identify all your flock just by face?
[I agree, Basil is beautiful. Isn't that the way though, the last kid born is so often the favorite. My little brother got all the attention.]
