The Males - 3 Weeks Old

The light brindle boy has a huge head and is a heavy-weight compared to the others. Notice the difference in his head compared to the rest of the litter! He seems more laid back and unconcerned. However, he does love his new solid food. It isn't enough to just put his head over the edge of the dish and eat nicely. He has to push his way all the way to the other side of the dish! At 3 weeks he weighs 6 lbs 12 oz!
The dark brindle boy is alert and watchful and more interested in his surroundings than the rest of his siblings. Today he watched me milk the goats from his whelping box! He weighs 5 lbs 12 oz, a whole pound behind his heavy-weight brother.
The fawn boy with no shoulder spot is a dark grey fawn. He is taking his sweet time and putting on the weight slower than the others. This can actually be a good thing and may have no bearing on his final adult size. He is the first one to walk up to my feet seeking attention. He weighs 4 lbs 2 oz.
The lighter fawn boy with one white shoulder spot weighs 4 lbs 10 oz. This guy doesn't mind being picked up to be weighed each evening, and usually doesn't make a peep, just takes it all in stride.

they are growing so nicely - they really do look like Capar - I guess either way you look at, we Shepherds Rest Canadians are related to dad or mom!
I am still so fascinated at the colouring and do long to check in weekly to have a look at how they are changing......
