Finally it's officially SPRING
These guys started it all! We brought them home across the ferry in a laundry basket at only a few hours old! Immediately we knew our lives had changed for the better! They lived in the house, were sung lullabies and learned how to eat grass by watching my 7 year old son crawl around on the grass... eating it. But really, they preferred their bottles! As they grew old, they didn't want to give up their bottles and had to be tricked into drinking water from a bucket. In Jack's case he refused the bucket and would only drink from the kayak or a toy dump truck.
Nowadays Captain & Jack are the leaders. Jack is the silent partner while Captain makes sure everyone knows where they stand and who to listen to.
Their human identities would be... Jack is the quarter back because he is very handsome and athletic and always admiring his reflection. Captain is the frat brother that smashes beer cans on his forehead to try to impress the girls who are all oogaling at his twin.
Sparrow is very special. He was born no bigger than your hand and needed clothes pegs to support his legs so he could stand. He has had countless health issues in his first year but is now strong and healthy and one of the tallest. He is the sweetest most gentle fella with saggy gray ears, that always look like they are wilting. Sparrow adores Disney Princess movies or any movie with a catchy tune and loves to sit on the couch and snack on popcorn while he watches.
Daisy is the herd Queen, which means she is a diva and is the true leader, despite what Captain would like to think. Daisy loves sparkles, pink, and ice cream! She loves being a Mommy and is raising her twins, Shasta and Gerber as royalty. Princess Shasta and Prince Gerber and don't forget it!
If Daisy were a human she would give the Hollywood Divas a run for their money!
Shy, quiet Willy sits off to the side and is always ready for a pat and a cuddle. He adores being brushed and unlike most of the others he is a very picky eater.
Our extreme sports, cuddly, Wrecks is our main paddle board enthusiast and LOVES food.
The Buck. Barbossa is the daddy to all this years babies and despite the stereotype of bucks being big bullies, Barbossa is so gentle and sweet... however he can be very stinky!
Pretty Poppet is such a sweet girl. Her bright blue eyes are always so curious. She spent her first month as a yoga goat and then lived inside for the next 8 months. She loves to go camping and for car rides. Poppet is an independent little lady but loves to spend time with her best friends, Sadie and Dudley (our giant good labradoodle).
Our little lady Sadie is ready to bat her eyes at you and push into everyone's hearts. She loves to dress up and be the center of attention.
Shy, relaxed Calypso is often on her own but is liked by everyone. She is sweet and mellow and loves her cereal.
Shy but mighty. Tiki goes where she please, hops in and out of the paddock or her stall and will do just about anything for oranges!
Poppet's gentle daughter. Lizzie is sweet, gentle and real cuddle bug. She likes to hang by Mom's side or be carried around and she will do just about anything for an oreo donut!
Gentle Nemo adores babies. She adores being a Mommy and loves to snuffle at everyone else's babies too. She loves having her daughter Ariel by her side and her twin sister Dory, even though like all sister they don't always get along.
Nemo has a silly adventurous streak that always keeps us giggling.
Curious, and sometimes determined Dory loves to show everyone how good she is at being milked. She loves her twin sister Nemo but finds that Nemo's daughter, Ariel sometimes takes away from her time with her sister.
Ariel is an Alpine-Nubian and has the ears to show it. Nubians have long floppy ears while Alpines have sticking out the side ears. Ariel got the length from her Nubian daddy and the sticky-out part from her Mommy giving her what appears to be airplane wings. Ariel is a gentle soul but often has a lot to say. She is very attached to her Mom, Nemo.
