Baby Goats!

Finally things have settled down enough that I have time to post pictures of some of the new kids.

This is Snickerdoodle. She is one of Cookie's doe kids.

This is Oreo. We call her Double-Stuffed a lot because she is a lot bigger than her twin, Snickerdoodle.

Pepper had triplets all by herself! I was 10 minutes late for the birth and came home to find three cute kids sitting there all cleaned up and ready.

This is Blue Moon. She is the first kid out of Pepper with this coloration. I am considering selling Pepper in order to keep Blue Moon. She is quite a looker!!

This is the buck Rosco. He is very handsome. I may keep him for breeding next year. I love all his gray spots!

Here's all three of the triplets. The one in front is a doe named Silver Dollar. She has a perfectly round silver spot on her side.

There's 4 more Alpine kids in the barn now. I will post pictures of them soon!

That's All Folks!

Kidding season is over now. I had 4 does produce 9 kids. I was there for 1 out of 4 of the births. I missed the other 3 kiddings by mere minutes. Luckily all kids were presented normally and all came out with no problems. Six kids are does and three are bucks. The moms are all doing well and producing milk well.
