The last few days have been heaven compared to the unusual wintery weather we have had. 45, then 50 and today 60 degrees. The kids (four legged - well and two) have really enjoyed this warmer weather. Here are a few photos of some of them. Enjoy!

Kidding Update...

This 2010 kidding season has not been with out it's ups and downs. A doe would kid here and there and the weather was not too bad, all was going well. But when the weatherman announced that a BIG storm was coming we knew we were in trouble. Fortunatly we did not get the ice they thought we would , just 8 inches of snow - and it was cold cold at night.

To make a long story short we have 5 does in our garage all w/ twins except one that kidded triplets this morning plus three bottle babies.

At one point I thought, "Now why do we have goats again?" After a good nights rest, the next day I felt better and was ready to take on whatever happened.

Not that the garage is the most ideal place for our goats, it has a good viewing window from the kitchen. :) It is time for several of the mothers to go out w/ their kids today - Cody our second son said "Our garage smells like a goat show. " I can only imagine what our house is starting to smell like to people that come over who don't have animals or goats.

When it comes down to it, these guys are an investment and you do what you have to do... plus no one likes frozen little babies.

New photos will be coming soon after things start to get back to normal.
