Short legs

goats Feb 17

Spot and Spotless prefer to eat their first meal of the day from the trough in the milking stand. Spot however is quite small and her legs are too short for her to reach the food with all 4 feet on the stand, resulting in this rather amusing scene of her front legs dangling while her head reaches into the trough!

We think she is not going to grow any more and that her smaller size is not related to her being pregnant. We think there is some pygmy genes somewhere in her genetic background. Georgina, her mother is too big to be a pygmy but has pygmy colouring and marking.
