First 2012 Goat Kids on the Ground

Yesterday after church we pulled into the driveway and my ever-diligent eyes noted all the sheep and goats out of the barn except Penelope. So of course I hiked up my skirt and went right out to the barn. I found Penelope in a stall with two still-wet babies. Obviously she was bred early by Blackberry the Houdini goat before I put her in the pen with Handsome Rob. So, we have 1st generation mini Nubians again. The little mostly red boy has blue eyes. I guess that's some consolation for not getting the kids I had planned. They are cute~
These are not the greatest pictures, but...look anyway.

Here they are still wet with their mom.


  1. Yippee!! They are so cute!!

    I am anxiously checking on Dixie today to see if she is really in the early stages of labor . . . because her dates are sooner than I expected, too (of course that's my fault, because I forgot to write down just which day I put the buck in:))

    Love those pretty colored babies!!

  2. Precious newbies.
