It’s been a while since I blogged about Ishtar’s Ark’s latest newcomer Allis yar’Amadeus, but rest assured she is not forgotten! It took a while before she seemed to gain any strength, but then all of sudden one morning she was up hopping on her father’s favourite rock; and that’s when we knew it was time to give the big girl a collar of her own!

Magagi has been in love with Allis ever since she was born, and was an eager volunteer when we set out to enhance her beautiful black coat with nothing else than a PINK collar!

Lol! It looks even better on than I imagined!

Isn’t she just one cool little goat kid?

See! I’m going “aw…” already!

Here’s another cute pair: owner and breeder and loving caretaker Anette with her first goat kid!

I don’t know who’s the sweetest on the picture above but they sure work well together!

Of course, Allis’ mother Esmeralda wasn’t leaving her baby unattended!

…so Anette got to cuddle both of them!

And in order not to offend anyone, I took a picture of our borrowed goat Ilona, who will be staying for as long as Esmeralda seems to want some “adult” company (which she does every time she’s on her way to steal some horse food…).
