This just in--Baby Goat!


I was still asleep when she started hollering. But I'd left the balcony door open for just such a reason, so she woke me up. It's her first time freshening so she was pretty indignant about it.

So, Rose Goat ends up having this hugantic buck. He's basically Leonard with a white topnot. He did absolutely nothing to help--I did have to give a few tugs to get his enormous head out. Betsy stayed on the phone with me to talk me through it, since I sort of thought for a moment there that we would have a hard time of it.

But everything was okay. He's got all his parts. Rose has plenty of colostrum and he's been filling up. It was a nice morning for a kidding.

    That is indeed a big buckling!

    Rosie, I've sent something to the paypal button, and please, rather than the cocker rescue, could you give it to Friend Scott?

    Humm not a bad name for the buckling "Friend Scott".

    Nice wee goat. Good she had only one, for her first kidding. She can polish her mothering giving it her full attention.
