Spring is here!!!

     Well, not exactly..... but something a lot like it!

       I mentioned in the "About" page that I keep goats.  They are called, "Nigerian Dwarf" dairy goats.  They are very small in size, and are usually docile in nature. 
      One of my female goats, or "does" named Hetty, was due to have a kid/kids on Saturday, and it being Tuesday, my mom and I were talking that morning about needing to keep an eye on her.  We knew that when she started to look different, and act strangely, that it would be only days, or even just a few hours before she kidded.  I hadn't noticed anything different yet.  
      So I went out to the barn to feed, and check on my critters.  When I came back, I told my mom,
     "I forgot to check on Hetty yesterday, but she definitely looks different today."
     "Oh she does?"
     "Yeah, she's thinner."  Still no reaction.
     "She's a lot thinner."
      My mom gasps.   "Do you mean?"
     "Well, how many?"
     "Teeny, tiny, fuzzy, little, brown-eyed twins!"
       So, we ran back out to the barn to go see them.  They are as cute as a button, and both of them are girls!  Of course, this was so exciting I just had to share it with ya'll!  Hetty is a very good mama, and has had kids before.  In fact, she is my best milker.  Here is a pic of her (sleepy,) brand-new kids!

(Ain't they cute? ;)

  1. How darling and exciting! We've been wanting to have goats too, but it hasn't happened yet. I love spring, especially because flowers are blooming, and things are renewed! Plus there's the promise of carefree summertime after spring!
