Finally more baby goats


All my boys

After a long week of watching and waiting, Josephine gave birth in the new goat paddock to two bucklings. She did not lick them or do anything with them but they are fairly vigorous. Gabe took Bota and named him and dried him off and helped me idodine his cord. Dan reluctantly did the same with Calvin. Bota was 9 pounds, Cavin 10 pounds. Both are took four ounces but are chasing Josephine around the pen. I’ll put her on the stand with grain at 5 pm and try to put them on the udder then (with Gabe’s help).

Three more very pregnant does to go. Total count – three doelings, three bucklings.
