Kids! Finally!


After 2 years of goat ownership, we finally have kids born on our farm! Lady gave birth this morning to 2 little boys, both seem to be doing well and sucking. Lady is of the Saanen breed, and she was bred to Monty, an Alpine/Nubian cross. It's too bad the kids are both male, they would have been good milkers. Lady is an excellent milker, and we plan to steal a bit of her delicious, ample milk supply for our table!

The children are excited at the kids arrival, I think we'll be spending a lot of time around the barn this spring!

  1. Yay! Hooray! I love new kids on the farm! I have a goat dairy and all the beauty that comes with these wonderful animals.
    Blessings to you!
    If you want doelings rather than little bucks, try getting the mama caught at the beginning of her three day cycle...


Thank you for your comments!
