Birds Love Spring - Trance - Goats

Goats are shedding their under coats right now.  Hair is everywhere.  Birds love to take the fur to make their nests.

 I love to see our dogs using their natural instincts to protect their flock.  During kidding season their instincts go into over drive, one dog is with the adult goats and the other is always with the newest group of babies.  Trance is with the adults in these pictures.

Couple of the kids just hanging out.

April 14-15...A bit chilly- Triplet Update

Triplets are up and starting to do some goat stuff.. I should be able to let them out of the barn in the next day or so.  

Yesterday ..... what can I say.

Hummingbird feeder this morning.  The poor little dudes were trying to drink out of it.  At least it didn't freeze solid, just a little slushy.

More Kids and stuff

We finally got all the fences fixed.  And the Boy Jail put back together.

This little girl was born a couple days ago..I thought it was cute the way the baby is looking up at her mom.

Went out to find 4 new babies and 2 moms.  One mom with a great big girl and yes our first set of triplets.  2 girls and 1 boy.  As you can see everybody is pretty worn out..

Just chill'n

Boys are back in jail...

AND, my husband..(Old Goat) made this beautiful door!

Kidding Continues

Good Morning..and where am I?  This little girl is just a few hours old so she hasn't figured out how the legs work yet.  

 These two boys were born a.m. yesterday.  They were strange little new born's... sometimes when they are born they are super "wired".  I ended up putting them in the barn with mom to settle everyone down.  All is well this morning.

Of course I don't want to leave my older kids out of the pictures.  Here is little Strawberry having a little fun this morning.

More Boys!

These little guys were born just before noon yesterday, out in the field.  That is normally a good healthy thing to happen, but yesterday it was 40 something with a lively wind.  I had to get the hair dryer out again to dry them and warm them up.  After about an hour they were up and hollering.  This morning belly's are full and they doing what all new born's do..sleeping

The first set of boys are out in the sun today, starting to be interested in the world.

New Kids... Meet the Boys

These guys were born yesterday afternoon just before our first big spring thunder storm rolled through (Yes both have blue eyes).  I just got them in the shed as the rain started.  We got 1-1/4” of rain out of the deal.  This morning all are doing well.  

 The “old” babies had to check out the new kids on the block.  As you can see baby goats don’t stay small for long.  The big baby is 7 weeks old.
