Wooo HooooÂ… BABY GOATS!! and PICS!!



My first doe of the year has delivered her kids!!  Two little does..  They were born late at night on the 13th.   


 


I found out about this on Valentines morning about 7:30.  The kids were fine and had nursed they were just cold.. wouldnÂ’t you know it the temps last night dropped down to 25!! 


 


My ValentineÂ’s Day was already a full and busy day. 


 


It was my Father-in-Laws 73rd birthday so we were


 


making him a big birthday dinner. 


 


Aside from the heart shaped cake that Emily was making for Grandpa, we had heart shaped cookies to frost, 15 homemade cards to make and 2 songs to practice that morning as well!  We were headed to the local seniors home to sing and pass out cookies and cards.


 


We got home from that event and still had to clean up the house and make a big dinner.  AND in between it all I was busy crocheting goat sweaters for my 2 new little girls..  they were cold!!    In the past I would put baby clothes on them, but wouldnÂ’t you know it.. I had no baby clothes!!  I know what I will be searching for this summer at garage sales!  Baby sweaters!!


 


 


Well here are pics of my babies:


 



 


 


 


Here is a pic of EmilyÂ’s heart shaped cake.  Grandpa loved it! 


 



 


Here we are lighting the candles:


 



 


Here I am madly crocheting away after dinner..  I had one more sweater to make!!  My hubby Tobin is sitting next to me looking pretty tiredÂ… he works long days and this was getting to be the end of the day for him!!  


 



 


Here are my babies in their sweaters!!


 



 


 


 


And of course here are pics of the Poms.. 


 



 



 


And while I was down at the barn taking pictures I thought I would share a pic of my one and ONLY rooster!!

  8. Oh! I am drooling Crystal! Those little girls are adorable! I can't wait to see my babies. I bred late due to all the buck problems I had, but late is better than none.

    I just posted an article on using goat milk...go see! I'll be patient and wait for our chat. I can see why you are SO busy!

    My pastor is looking to buy some Nubian kids this year, and he wants me to help him "shop". Big fun! I get to shop w/ someone else's $$ ha ha.
