The babies have arrived!!

We have baby goats! Three little bucklings to be exact!

My black doe Hope is quite a loner when it comes to having her babies! I swear she waits until I am gone or in the house to have hers! I have never seen her deliver.

 She has 3 beautiful black & white boys! One of them is pretty tiny & not sucking very well yet so he is in the house but the other 2 are with the momma.

What fun!

Hubby and I are having an argument as to what size that bin is that the baby goat is in! I'm betting that little baby can't weigh more than 10 lbs. He says way more! Either way, precious as can be and I wish I lived closer to you. I would help you with the midnight feedings!

Josh has named the goats Gigi, Moe and Boe. He was very excited and wanted to see more pictures!

It is an 18 gallon size tub & he weighs between 5-6 lbs. The other 2 are slightly bigger at 6-7 & 7-8 lbs.

Congratulations! I hope your littlest one does okay. The other two look like nice strong guys.

Great news for you. How's the little fellow going? Baby goats are delightful. Hope all are thriving.
