OK, while I napped this afternoon, hubby went out and snapped a few pics to add to yesterday's attempts at pictures. I've already taken to calling the firstborn Brownie Junior, and his little brother Whitey. Maybe not the most imaginative names, but I tell them they got better first names than the triplets did last spring.
As mentioned in a caption, there is a definite size difference between Brownie Junior and Whitey, and I am already noticing character differences. Brownie Junior is quite the adventurous little twerp, so in a night or two they are going into a crate for overnight so we don't have a repeat of overly-adventurous kids getting out at night. Meanwhile, little Whitey is probably going to be a very affectionate goat. He already loves having his nose stroked, from tip to forehead. I did that this afternoon (once the rain stopped) and he just lifted his head right into my hand with a "Oh I like this!" look on his face. I do hope I can find a good pet home for him.
