Our busy season has arrived. Not only that, it managed to catch us a bit unprepared. We were expecting things to start happening around March 6th.
Nevertheless, here is what all the fuss is about.
This little one’s mother is having nothing to do with her! (This is her first baby.) So we are having to bottle feed her about every five hours. She was born Friday and she is a little small as you may can tell. The boys already have her quite spoiled. She cries for them.
We had to help Buttercup (the mama) by cutting the cord and drying this little miss. Buttercup had other "things" to attend to.
Meet Buttercup's baby boy. For twins, these two look nothing alike.
This isn't a great picture, but it is Buttercup with her twins. (You think getting two legged kids to be still for a picture is difficult, try taking pictures of four legged kids!) The babies are just trying to stand. The black one is the little girl being cleaned up and getting her cord cut, above. Her markings are cute. The boys are calling her Oreo and they named the little boy, Snicker-doodle. In the past, our goats have always had flower names....we're running out of names!
Can you tell Oreo is about 20 minutes older than Snicker-doodle? As you can see, she has already figured out this standing stuff and is heading toward dinner.
Ahhh ~ finding dinner....er, almost!
So far, we have had four (I didn't get a picture of the first one loaded.) We have four more nannies to deliver. Three of those will probably be multiple births.
I love spring in the country!
This is the last day for the giveaway. All you have to do to enter is comment. I'll announce the winner on Friday. Hope you have a great week!
