Wicked Cunnin': Maine Goats & a St. Bernard…Yes Please
Over the summer, we were introduced to these incredible Maine fur babies. They're getting bigger every day and Mildred (the little goat) is becoming pretty assertive about establishing boundaries with Frances (the St. Bernard). We love how the bigger goat is chillin' through it all. Time for some cuteness overload on Monday!
According to the Sunflower Farm YouTube channel:
"Mildred our Nigerian Dwarf Goat kid spent her first two weeks of life inside the house because we were not sure she was going to make it. We tube fed her while we waited for her to gain enough strength to suck on her own. Now she is about 4 months old and becoming boss of the barn. While we unloaded this year’s hay, Mildred and her goat friend Rhubarb, worked on some subtle manners lessons for Frances the new farm pup who was coincidentally born on the same day as Mildred! Frances the Saint Bernard, who is deaf, is pretty relaxed about just about everything and seems to want to be the goat’s friend. We are trying to let her get used to them so she is not inclined to chase them when she is older."
This is definitely the kind of stuff we all need more of. It's so great to have a window into watching them grow up with each other. Thanks to Sunflower Farm for sharing them with us!
