We opened up a brand new pasture for the goats. It took some convincing to get them down the new long alleyway. They were happy to have new brush and grass to eat.

Flopsey (saanen/Nubian doe) had two baby girls on Tuesday. This is her first time kidding and when I fed her dinner she didn’t look close so i left her in the main pen. A few hours later we heard some baby sequels and when we went out there were 2 new babies running around the pen and Flopsey looked a bit surprised at what had happened. We put her and her babies in one of the kissing pens and she has taken right to being a mamma. Both babies will be looking for a new farm. They are sannnen/Nubian/Nigerian crosses so should stay small.

The first kidding of the season is always the hardest. You forget how it should all go and try not to get involved too soon. We were lucky today. We waited a long time to help out and ends up the baby was backwards and bent in half so his side between his ribs and his butt was trying to come out first . I was able to get him readjusted and pull him out backwards and amazingly he and his brother are both doing well! Boar/saanen crosses.

We let the does out in the “chicken pen” to mow down the grass. This is where we put the meat chicken tractors each spring and the best grass on the farm! The meat birds ar going out on it this weekend so wanted to give the does a chance to trim it down.

Yesterday was a busy and somewhat stressful day on the farm. Lucy had a single doeling around 2:00. She was a big baby and we had to help her out. Lucy wouldn’t settle down and was talking and panting and pacing all night. She would quiet when we went in and yell once we left. Talked with the vet and goat mentor. Gave banamine and vit b and probios. She settled down over night and mom and baby are doing well this am.

Around 2AM Nessie had 2 bucklings. She was in the maternity ward and her mamma Nelly helped clean the babies (I was not sure if that would lead to a bad situation with them both trying to claim the baby-anyone have experience with that?) mom and nannies are in their own pen now and all doing well

All 3 saanen/Nigerian crosses will be available.

Mother/daughter pairs in the maternity ward. Nelly and Nessie and Lila and Lucy. The relationships between the does in our herd continues to amaze me. These mother/daughter pairs lay with each other at night in the barn. One of these mammas (Lila) is retired but we still put her in to keep her daughter company.

I am really looking forward to seeing what Nelly has as we bred her to Luke who is also out of Lila. Lila scored great at our linear appraisal a few years ago but we had to retire her after issues with ketosis and triplets that really affected her body. We learned a hard lesson with Lucy. She was one of the triplets and we didn’t feed her grain through her first winter. She was still small this fall when we wanted to breed her so we chose to breed her to a Nigerian so she would have smaller babies. I am excited to see what she has too!

Today was a busy day! Both meat goats had their babies at lunch time! Daisy (green collar with white spot on her head) had 2 bucks and Vivian had a doe and a buck. They were all 8-9# babies! Luckily Brett is still working from home so he and the kids were here to help the mammas and I watched them on the barn camera from work lol. The babies are boar/saanen mixes and are available.

Tonight Cole was up in the hay loft getting ready to throw down a bale of hay. I was waiting in the pen to move some of the the flakes to the other feeders. I had to laugh as the girls all stood there looking up at where the hay should fall down! They knew what was happening!
