Gotta go. Have a good night all!

Well, there's not much to update about here on the ranch I guess. Don't have any pictures to post today.
No more babies are due till the 15 of March (or... they could have them as early as the 5th, but anyway...) makes for a nice break. We just have 5 bottle babies right now. 2 are scheduled to be picked up, 1 will probably be sold as soon as I make a phone call (she's just a couple days old though), and then the last 2 are staying here ("Mr. Pug" and the Doris/Lando doeling, no name yet).
Right now we are milking 12 does, and they are all doing great in the milking department this year. Very nice to have milk again!!
Yesterday it rained a lot, and we were at this auction and it was soo muddy! Glad to have Muck boots :)!
We still have a little hay left if you would like to get some before the next truck load comes. Just email me!
Have a good day!

Well, just a few hours ago Doris kidded to quads, but one was DOA :(. The other 3 are doing great, one buckling and 2 doelings. I'll have to get some pictures and do another blog post with their story!
For this post though. . . Tuesday we were given more goats! A Nubian buck, who can be registered (his registration app. should be here Saturday), then 2 does that are Saanen/Alpine and 2 of their babies last year out of the Nubian buck, and then 1 little doe kid that was nursing on one of the older does. All are in great health, although they do need their feet trimmed (don't mind that!).
So here's some pictures. . .

Yesterday around noon Athena (Snubian doe) kidded to twin does (YAY for does!!). Their sire is Junior Mint, a Mini Nubian buck, so I suppose you could call these doelings Mini Snubians?!? Right now I don't have any pictures, gonna have to snap some. One doeling is all white and the other is black/white.
All the other babies are doing good. The next 2 does due are Doris and Mo, both very wide.
It is very muddy outside, so thankful for my Muck boots in this kind of weather!! All the animals seem to be handling it fine though and enjoying the sunshine.
We had another load of hay delivered yesterday, we really needed it! If anyone needs hay, just let me know!
And if anyone is looking for the goat facebook page, Facebook disabled my account for some weird reason and I am working (hoping) on getting it back up soon, so for some reason the goat page went away with it. . .
Time to go, have a great day!

LaWanda kidded this morning, right after milking. Twin girls, yes! Their sire is Topaz, our F3 buck - these are our first babies out of him.
They are much taller than the tiny-triplet boys born yesterday ;). Here's a few pics, not the greatest but they'll have to do for now.
