Goat kidding update

When I go out at 5:30 a.m. for a check, can’t find one, suffer a mild panic attack, then locate her snoozing under the hay feeder:19May2016 Doeling

Her brother looked at me with charming eyes and said, “No worries, I will pose.”Boer_goat_baby Handsome

I heard Thumper talking to Bambi, “Awfully wobbly, ain’t ya?”Awfully_wobbly

Sis decided to come out from hiding and bat her eyes at me.Baby_goat

With the good, always seems to come some bad.  Gabby went in to labor the next day and successfully delivered twin boys.  One, however, did not survive.  The other is up and doing well.  Thankful for that; sorely sad and disappointed about the other.  After working and working and working with the one that didn’t make it, Gerty’s twins set themselves up to make me smile.521Twins

Sigh…. that is the sound of my heart melting.  Baby Boer goat kids are like 1/2 lop-ear bunny and 1/2 puppy.

Guess what?  These two have now learned to jump!  I will be taking lots of pics today and in the next post you will also meet Gabby’s little guy.

I hope you have a beautiful, laughter-filled weekend, friends.

    Sweet pictures. So sorry about one of Gabby’s little ones. I’m sure it’s heartbreaking. Look forward to more pics!

    Regardless of what kind of a day I am having your posts and photos always make me smile. You truly have a gift Marla, and your adorable subjects don’t hurt either. 🙂

  5. Aren’t they just so cute – and it is miserable to lose one especially after a fight – but the survivors are full of joy. Hope your weekend is getting all the sun mine is! It is glorious out there.. c
