Two More Baby Goats Born Today ~ Blessed Day

I love heading down to the barn this time of year.  I was out at the barn at 2am this morning as I was convinced our ewes were going to deliver.  They appeared to be starting labor last night.  But, as of 2am there were no lambs.

I had a baby goat in the house last night due to her mom’s milk not coming in so this morning I wanted to get her back down to the barn to be with her mom after I fed her a bottle.

Low and behold we had another baby kid goat (a male this time) born.  I am really excited about him because he is 1/2 Nubian and 1/2 Nigerian Dwarf.  Both are dairy goat breeds but I like the cross as the Nubians are a bigger dairy goat but I like the Nigerian Dwarf’s milk content and flavor better.  So to have a buck from this cross is great for our herd going forward.

It was a cold a dreary day today so I spent a great deal of time in the barn with the babies.  Sitting on a hay bale and having them jump and play around me is just about the best way I can spend my time on a Saturday.

I wanted to get back down to the barn later in the day to fill all the water and low and behold we had a second baby goat born today.  The second was a little girl!

So, now we have five babies, four girls and one boy.

Here’s our cute little flock as of this afternoon.
