Fuzzy Little Doelings



Latte, our Nigerian Dwarf goat, finally gave birth today to two little doelings. Yay! We are very, very excited. We'll be keeping them both. Both Emily and Julia are thrilled, but Sam's a bit put out that we have so many girls around the farm.

Are these yours?? If so, I am beyond jealous. We have been contemplating goats for some time now and I want them soooo badly.

They are adorable.

Priceless!

We just had a heifer calf born here too! Check out my thread on the family cow board for photos. Gotta love those baby girls.....

Maggie said...

What cute babies!

Madeline said...

So sweet! Congratulations on more girls. That's what you would want for milking right? I understand, Sam, but in reverse. I need some more girls around here - human ones.

Thanks for all the well wishes.

Yes, Angie, they're ours. I added some text to give a few more details. I just wanted to get the photo up so Jim could see them, but he ended up leaving work without seeing them anyway. At any rate, I have a love/ hate relationship with the goaties. They're great in many ways, but also a pia in lots of others! For brush clearing, they can't be beat.

We're very excited because last year, she had a little boy—not nearly as useful around the farm. Hence, Sam's irritation. And yes, Madeline, they'll be for milk—goat's milk cheese, soaps and lotions.

Oh sure, Jenny, post at the family cow board but not on your blog. Humph. ;)

LOL I knew I would be in trouble for that. It's just that I needed to ask them a question about the little gal! Also, I have this hang-up about my blog where I want to try to keep everything in chronological order and I'm about a month behind right now. I'd do better to post one thing every couple of days, but that's hard because I usually misplace the camera-to-computer cord for days and sometimes weeks at a time.

I know, I know.......
