So much to share......so little time.....

......but I just had to post a couple of pictures (with more to come later).

Look what we found last Friday morning!


HB was feeding one of the dogs and thought he heard something. Sure enough....she had just been born. I went out and toweled her dry, held her while she nursed and got a heat lamp set up for her in the stall.

Lil "Annie" Oakley


Her favorite place.


"I see you!"


My friend, Christy from Whistling Wind Farm came by for a visit and to help me give copper to the goats. (Thanks, Christy!)


Bonnie and Annie


What a precious girl!

Now if Cher will just hurry up.....

We've had a lot going on the past couple of weeks so I'll post an update and some more pictures soon.

  7. Annie is a beautiful little girl! That's really cute with her snuggled into the feed pan!

    I think one of the best things about finding them already born is that you didn't have to stress through the labor and delivery! I'm glad they're doing so well.

    It is great to have special goatie friends to help with jobs like giving copper and trimming hooves. Tonia comes over to help me sometimes. The help is sure appreciated!

  8. Brenda - I agree it was nice to go out and find her here already. Since this is my very first kidding season, I was very nervous! Somehow, I don't think Cher is going to be as accommodating. She is much bigger and I'm not sure if that mean multiple babies or just one really big one. Tonight is cold, wet and nasty. I'm sure that Cher will find it perfect weather in which to kid.

    Christy has been a doll and very helpful! It is very nice to have a friend that is available to help with goat related issues!

    Keeping my fingers crossed for the next birth!

  12. Congrats!! She is ADORABLE. Couldn't be any cuter!

    Hang in there...it can be nerve wracking indeed. We have delivered quads! But multiple births are better than one large baby. (I am nervous too, as our cow is ready to deliver any minute...)
