Getting bigger

Goat and mineral lick July 16

The 2 goat kids are developing well. They are eating lots of leaves though they continue to suckle. They also using the mineral lick, a sign that they are less dependent on mum Georgina. They are also growing rapidly. I picked up Spotless, the billy, yesterday when he managed to get himself stuck in the duck run. I estimate he was between 15 and 20 kg. He is also bigger than his sister spot. By the autumn, when he is due for slaughter, he will be a good size.
