The mothers are settling into their routine of having babies now. For larger parts of the day the mothers will wander off to graze apart from the kids but always find plenty of time to curl up and snuggle with their babies. We have mothers with babies who are five or six years old that still snuggle up when they nap. They have quite a bond.
I still cannot get my favorite picture which is of Marie, a little Angora kid, standing or sleeping on her mother's back. She settles her self there after dark each night but if I try to sneak up on her for a picture her very alert mother hops up to see what I am doing.
