2 Kids!!

They are finally here! Yesterday afternoon we went out in the barn to get the milkers and heard two little kids, they were already dry and walking. I had someone check on all the does earlier in the day, but they didn't know who was due, etc.... so we missed the birth, but no big deal. We also found a stillborn :(. BUT, the 2 live kids are adorable and doing great! There's one buck and one doe. The mom is PawPawNin Maglio Tartuffini ("Lil' Maggie") and the sire is Dreamy-Hollow Parker. The kids are F2s. Here's some pictures.

the buckling,

the doeling,

both of them,

I have a busy day ahead of me today. . . possible hay delivery (& pick-ups), cooking ad cleaning for a New Years Eve party tonight, feeding kids, and more of course! So, I have to go check on the new momma goat and get doing stuff! Have a great day!


p.s. - we were down to milking 5 in the morning and 4 in the evening, but now we are back up to 6! I also have 2 more does in the kidding stalls and a few more out in the barn, due very soon!
