Introducing Four, aka Mr. Man!

Hi! I'm Four, but you can call me Mr. Man.

Four is a lovely 2 year old angora buck that I picked up this weekend from Kathie Bryant over in Brandon, VT.  We had a lovely drive thru light snow over the mountains to get home, and we sang along to my friend Erin McDermott’s new album all the way home.  Once we got home he seemed a little nervous, until I brought the girls up to meet him. 

For the first time ever, I was able to get halters on Tallulah and Nola, and the we just trotted right up the road to the barn where Four was waiting anxiously.  There was much sniffing and prancing about.  The girls were a little confused at first, but after a time, everyone settled in, and by evening Four was eating out of my hand, and the girls were being friendlier, not running away so much.  I’m keeping them in last year’s winter stall for a couple of weeks, to ensure that the girls get bred (i.e. they can’t really run away or avoid Four’s advances).   Then I’ll move everyone back down to the main barn until kidding time. 

It was worth the trip in the car to get my own ladies 🙂

Tallulah, who is ordinarily very, very stand-offish, has actually started to come and give me kisses on the  hand when I come out to check on them.  She has never done that before, but has been doing so regularly since Four came home.  I think it’s her way of saying thank you for bringing her a real man 🙂 

Getting to know Tallulah

Hopefully Mr. Man will get the job done and we’ll have some new kids come May.
