Training pack goats.. the first step

Here I am camping out in the goat barn. I decided to train two of the new goat kids to be pack goats. What a great excuse to hit the trails hiking...gotta train the goats! From what I read, goat kids need to imprint on humans to make good pack animals. The first 48 hours are critical. They don't need to be bottle fed, but they need to have as much human contact as possible. My task? Sit in a lawn chair and cuddle kids. We're now into the 4th hour of life for my two little boys. I need to give them names. Oh no, one of the other goats has gotten into the maternity ward. Gotta go!
