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!

I love baby goat sand yours are so cute! All of my girls are being bred this month for February kids. I was only going to breed 2 of my girls but my buck had other ideas.

Looks like your lighter doe has a good udder. Good luck with your cheese making. I've been making it all summer along with buttermilk, yogurt, pudding, fudge, cajeta...etc...etc

Mamma Bear, I can't wait to make all sorts of goodies with my goat's milk. I'm new at this and I am sure it will be a frustrating process learning how to milk for both me and the girls! I have another female bred due the end of the year. We just got our goats this year and have one billy and one weathered male with the three females. Now we have two female and one male with the new babies! I love all of them they are great pets!

Thanks Susie, I hope that I get the hang of cheese making so that we have plenty of it around the house and I won't have to buy it! haha
