Sarah's babies

Sarah gave us two little buckling last night.  They are both beautiful...but truth be told we were hoping for girls.  This is our second year with an abundance of boys.  Hopefully the next bunch of babies will even out the odds.  We haven't named these guys yet...but will very soon.

Sarah just shot these 2 boys out in less than 3 minutes. We're not exactly growing the herd this season. #mininubian #dairygoats #youvegottobekidding

Rain

Another day of rain keeps everyone warm and cozy under the shelters. #mininubian #nigeriandwarf #Anatolianshepherds #GreatPyrenees

Vet visit

Well, we sat around much of the night with America but she wasn't able to pass the second kid. So the vet came out this morning and pulled a little stillborn girl out of her and now she seems ok. It was another unfortunate experience for us (losing a baby doeling especially) but also a learning one in that we may be able to save the kid if this happens again. We've helped pull babies out before but there was always at least some little visible body part to latch on to. Going in elbow deep to find the little guy was something we weren't prepared for but our doc is great at explaining and showing us  how things should be done. We are a bit remote so if she can't get here in time at least we can try to help with this kind of situation next time. #youliveyoulearn #mininubian #dairygoats #youvegottobekidding
