Our New Additions

Yesterday Jessy and I drove an hour and a half to Amherst, MA to pick-up her birthday present and the new additions to our family. They are two pygmy goats, twins, a male and a female. The white one is the little girl and Jessy named her Rosie. The black one is the male and she named him Quartz. She chose the names because Mary Ann (the woman we adopted them from) so nicely gave Jessy a couple of large pieces of rose quartz from her garden.

Rosie and Quartz are settling in slowly but are fine. They're both a little shy since they were just separated from their mom, the other kids(baby goats) on the farm and all the llamas roaming around. They were quite lucky to have so many friends. I'm sure they'll adjust soon. Once our fence is finished (waiting for the ground to thaw), they'll have plenty of room to play and frolic in their new home here in Pepperell. Here's pic of them still not ready to leave the safety of the carrier.
