Fezzik and Lucky Nickel come home

Today was the big day - Fezzik and Lucky Nickel, my goats, finally came home again to live with me.  It has been 2 years and 8 months that my goats have been in long-term boarding, and I have missed them so very much.  I brought the sheep home first, and today the goats came home.  My woolly family is now back together again.

The first thing I had to do was trim their hooves, since it had been a while since I'd done it, and I wanted to check them over in general before putting them into the fenced area.  You would think that they had checked in to Goat Spa Central, because they just chilled out in the deck chair and had a wee snooze while I worked on them.

"I am relaxing.  Where is my pina colada?"

"My hooves will be beautiful."

Fezzik, because he is well-behaved and not a runner, was allowed to sample the greenery.

Yum, raspberry leaves!

More yum!  Maple leaves!

Marc made some adjustments to the gate on the fenced area while I did the hoof trims.

Fezzik reunited with Twilight first (and there were some head bumps)!

Then it was Lucky Nickel's turn for a pedicure....I mean, hooficure.

Cabana boy....bring me my parasol!

"Why do these pallets have to be here?  They ruin my view."

"I do not care that you are 'all done' with my hooves.  I am not ready to move yet."

As usual, Lucky Nickel asserted her dominance.

Fezzik, smart goat that he is, stayed out of the way when Lucky Nickel was discussing her dominance with the sheep.

 Is she done yet?  Is it safe to approach?

Fezzik then discovered the massage tree.

Goat and sheep sharing a massage.

Marc seemed to enjoy their antics, too!

Fezzik looks like a big white teddy bear with horns.  He's as adorable as ever.

"I am a big fierce goat and I will show you by rubbing my head on this tree!"

Izzy came around to visit with the goats.  She used to spend all her time with them.  I wonder if she actually remembers them. She got a fuss from Marc on the way.

Both goats quickly discovered the spruce trees on the menu.

They seemed to take a few moments to consider their new surroundings, but overall, they just fit right in to their new home.

I think Fezzik is pretty happy to be home.

And Lucky Nickel, as long as she is the centre of attention, is also happy to be home.

And me....I may be the happiest one of all.  These goats saved my life one day, in the long-distant past.  I am blessed to have them back with me again after such a long time.

Sharing with Camera Critters and Saturday's Critters!

I am so glad they've come home. I cannot believe they just sit in that chair for you. Mine would panic. Fezzik has such a nice smile.

Srsly on the hoof trims. Mine act like they are being tortured. So very glad you finally have them all back with you.

Hello, that is so cute they sit still for you. They are adorable goats, I like their hair or is it fur? Fezzik and Lucky Nickel are cuties. Great series of photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your critter and post. Happy Saturday, have a great weekend!
