Oh my goodness! I don't think I've ever seen anything cuter! Thanks for sharing the photos - it's a great way to start a Monday.

Susan said...

Oops! Forgot to say he's a boy. My bad.

Sarah said...

He is *adorable*.
That is the best start to a week ever. Yup. Pretty much ever. :)

He is the cutest thing ever! And his name is perfect for his size because a little parsley goes a long way ;)

What a beautiful baby! And the first picture where his mom looks like she's kissing his head is also very sweet!

Could he be any cuter? I think not. :-)

OMG he is absolutely the most adorable goatie I ever saw. Is he on him mommy ok? wish I could come visit!!!!!

SeDress said...

so is he up and moving about yet?
you'll have to keep him and mom in the lambing pen for awhile. the other little kids play too rough for such a little guy.

I went over to check on him at lunchtime and he is up and walking. I help him drink from his mama, but he is so short that it took a lot of effort to reach her udder. He tried though and drank from about five minutes on his own which is the important part.
I did end up tubing him though, because I don't want his energy to get too low to keep trying. I HATE tubing but hopefully by tomorrow he won't need it.
He is definitely going to need to be protected from the other kids for a while. He's about 1/3 the size Thyme was when she was born. I'll weigh him tonight and post his weight here.

Oh my!!!!!!!! She's wonderful!

If I walked out to the barn and saw that beautiful bundle I would be absolutely hysterical! She's a sweetie!

habitual said...

Ooops- I was so excited I didn't read the comments.

HE'S so wonderful!!!

Susan said...

Okay, I just weighed the little peanut and he is just shy of a pound with a full belly.

jenibug said...

So instead of being a "buck 50" he's more like "two bits" 'eh?Beware the "runt" though. They can be feisty little things that grow up to be such a handful.But what a CUTE handful!!
