As per Ferrier1987: You are supposed to post pictures when you post about your baby goats. Its a rule here. I just made it up as a rule, but its now part of the forum rules I have decided.

More goatlings

Post by Farrier1987 » Sun Apr 29, 2018 10:25 am

So Dulcinaya has presented us with twins. Boy and a girl. Carmen and Zoro. Very cute, it just oozes out of them and gets all over you. You get back to the house and you just have to wring it out of your clothes.

Dulcinaya is a yearling, and is a good mom. I had been giving her her grain in the milkstand all winter and playing with her bag. Milked her the first time and she never flinched. I sure like doing things this way. All a progression not an event. And Dulcinaya is going to be a bood milker. The twins with her 24 hrs a day, and I am emptying her morning and evening, close to a Litre each time, and the babies are getting lots.

Zoro has a home already, though he can't leave til weaning at around two months. Going to be a pet, will join Cecil from the March twins. And young billy goats are like roosters, you hope to find them a home, but if not, you have to do something with them..... So I am pleased. Five kids this year, three girls, two boys, and the boys have pet homes.

Attaching a few pics. Your OOH's and AHH's welcome. I bore other people with these like others do with their grankids. (I do have grankids, but a long way away)

And Peachy hatched six the same day the kids were born. Now if we can get some warm weather, it will seem like spring..
