|Latest indoor bottle baby goat, Lucky.|
Lucky is three days old. He is one of twins. His sister's name is Cozette and their mother is Bobbin, the daughter of Holly. Here, the Bear is trying to finish his Bear book, but a very pleased-looking Lucky has decided goats are a better topic.

|Holly comes home.|
Holly had triplets last year: Button, Bobbin and Panda. Panda was rejected, so he got to live in the house for a while. Button was adopted by someone else as a pet.
Ava had Daisy, who is now pregnant.
Blanquette had twins: Sadie and Patch. Patch was a house goat, too. He now lives with Napoleon, in "the boys" paddock. Napoleon is the father of Lucky and Cozette (the latest additions). Blanquette has horns and has turned into quite the bully, although she leaves the kids alone, at least.
It always seems that the mothers reject one of their kids.
The night before last, the Bear was holding Lucky in his lap at 2 a.m., begging him to suck out of a bottle, but Bear didn't know the trick. Well, there's two tricks. The first is, the nipple was too free with the formula. We changed that. The second trick is you have to scratch them while they drink. That's how their mothers encourage them.
Now he's doing fine on the bottle.
