First Kids of 2015

Twin girls! Maddy had twins this afternoon. She is doing great as a first time mom. I still need to come up with names and am drawing a blank. For now they are Number One and Number Two. That needs to change. 
I am gulping down my coffee so I can go check on them. It worries me having them out in the cold, but I tell myself that goats are born in much colder places than Georgia. They are in a dry stall, out of the wind with their mama, lots of deep hay, and full bellies. Still my nerves are on edge when I get up to the barn each morning. 
My new herdsire was born in TN too. We are lovingly calling him "Hole in One". I am destined to have all Sundgau bucks. This is three in a row now!

Trixie was a little perkier yesterday. Per Dr. Maxwell's suggestion, I gave 1ml Dex Friday night and 1ml yesterday. There is a good chance she will go into labor today. Another reason to be nervous about going out to the barn. I wish I had a camera so I could check from the house!

  1. Very cute! Love those LaMancha ears. We aren't expecting goat kids till March, and I don't have a clue when the sheep are due, but I can't wait!!!
