Three More Baby Goats!

Fiona had triplets last night: two boys and one girl. Long legged and ganglier than the other four. 

The boys have Black and Tan spots. The girl has tan spots.

I'm so sick right now

I can't find one of Franny's kids anywhere. I'm so afraid a coyote got her. 

FRANNY FOUND HER!! She was hiding in the corner of the cabin. Franny kept calling for her, walked closer, and I heard the baby calling back. I'm so relieved 

More kids!

Went outside around two o'clock today and discovered that Feisty had her babies! 
I thought she'd only have one since she's kind of small, but she had two little doelings. 

I brought them inside to dry them off quickly. It's overcast a and chilly out today. 

This one looks like her daddy, Freckles.

It's kidding time!

Proud mama, Franny.

Franny had two kids, a buckling and a doeling late Sunday/early Monday March 23, 2015. 

Both are really healthy, passing yellow stools so are getting milk, and are adorable and inquisitive. 

For now, we're calling the buckling Freckles the Second. That's him in all his fluffy cuteness above. 
The doeling we're calling C.C. short for Cookies N Cream. She's only slightly smaller than her brother. 

It's funny how much of a combination they are of their parents compared to their first offspring. 

Last year, Franny had two doelings - one who was a buckskin like herself (her mini-me) and the other who was black and white like the dad. These two look very different from their sisters.

Both parents were registered; one with one goat association and the other to a different one. However, they are both 100% Nigerian Dwarf so I'm selling these. 

The other does I have that are expecting are mutts. Not much income from them.

Too bad. These guys are super cute and crazy corny!!
