We have new baby goats! Yay!
We woke up Sunday morning to quite a surprise. I was expecting the girls to have their babies soon, but I did not expect them both to kid at the very same time over night! Dixie, our white goat and Mama the brown goat were acquired in June and they said that one might be bred. Well they both were bred and Mama was huge so I knew she was having at least twins. Mama is the mother of the white goat Dixie. They were already named when we got them. So, not only is Mama a new mommy again she's also a grandma to Dixies first kid. They are adorable little goats.
Mama had a set of twins, two tan and black and white goats, one boy and one girl.
The chickens are not quite sure of what to think of the new goats taking over the house, but they will all get along just fine!
This is Dixies first time to have a baby, she's quite a good mommy and I love how she and Mama work together taking care of all three of the goats.
We are very excited to have our new babies. They will be very spoiled in no time and we will be able to start working on milking the goats to start making our own cheese. I am very excited about that!
