We have baby goats!
Hazel surprised us this morning with twin bucks. :) They are both exact matches of Hazel, except one has a pink pig nose. They are super cute. One of them was jumping on me less than 8 hours after he was born! Here are the photos:
I hope you all had a spectacular weekend!!! :)
I have decided to do something different with my blog. I will post a little each day, and usually include pics. I think that will be a better idea for me since I am so busy all the time. Of course I will also post updates if we ever have any!! Sooooo... here we go!
That is what the email I got this morning started with.
I had noticed Hazel was getting fatter, and developing a little udder. I didn't know what to think, as I knew she had not been with any buck. Or so I thought. I decided to ask the previous owner what she thought of it, and the email I received started with, "Oh crud... she is not fat, she is pregnant.". What?! Oh my gosh! She had gotten in with the lady's buck, Scarab, and she was bred. Kay, her old owner, didn't know that. In fact, she thought that she had put her in a dog crate when she was in heat. Well, she did, but I guess she went into heat again. That little goat! She got pregnant at five months old! Oh my...
The good thing is that she is bred to a Nigerian Dwarf buck, who is spotted and polled (naturally does not have horns, which he could pass on to these babies), so we will probably have some really cool looking babies. I'm reeaaaalllllyyyyy hoping for two doelings, but you just know we will end up with one buckling... or maybe not, I guess time will tell! So, she is due around March 10th-14th, so we will certainly be watching! Any name suggestions? Or... you could guess how many, genders, day she will have them, etc.
