End of Kidding 2015

19 Jun

Yesterday evening, Bonnie finally gave in and gave birth.  It wasn’t easy, and it’s why Boeris will be leaving the farm.  His kids’ heads are way too big.



We finally got both of her girls here safely, and everyone is doing well.  I must say, Llenny seemed quite confused by the ruckus and new goats in his herd.

I’ve updated the tail count in my sidebar to include these June babies.  Our final totals are forty-seven kids, twenty-four does and twenty-three bucks!

    Great that the kidding season is over for this year! Your head count has gone up alot;great. Yea, Llenny is quite the onlooker in the picture. Almost funny,but he’s probably thinking:shut up babies;ha!

      It is really a relief to be done. Eleven more kids out of these last five moms.

    poor dear with two big heads to pass!

      She usually has her kids quite easily, which I why I let her be with him, but we got everyone here safely.

    Well…I’d say they did pretty good at keeping things even! Big heads are trouble…that’s why we breed our first calf heifers to little jerseys! It’s definitely worth it! Glad all are well!

      I hate to get rid of him, but Bonnie’s never had to work at having kids (literally fall out and she doesn’t know it), so if she struggles, he’s got to go. Sam the Man better do a lot of growing!

    I’m glad that’s over! Poor Bonnie! Owie! They’re really beautiful. Do I see faint moonspots on the one? Will you be selling all of these too? I know you said you were only going to keep the one….is it Annie?

    • Teresa June 19, 2015 at 9:19 pm #

      They don’t have moonspots. Just need to get dried. One white spot. Annie is the only one I planned on keeping. Helen is having hip issues, so I’m working on calming down her girls to keep one of them too.

    Glad the kids arrived safely.

    • Teresa June 19, 2015 at 9:19 pm #

      Me too. It’s a huge relief to be done.

    Hooray for a successful kidding season!

    • Teresa June 19, 2015 at 9:19 pm #

      It really was successful, even if it wasn’t perfect.

    Gald the blast five kids are safely delivered now. Love the shot go Llemy looking after his goat herd!

    • Teresa June 20, 2015 at 8:56 am #

      Llenny has really embraced his new life as a guard llama.

  8. Eileen June 20, 2015 at 2:31 am #

    I am so glad the kids were delivered safely. I like the cute kids and Llenny! Have a happy weekend!

    • Teresa June 20, 2015 at 8:56 am #

      It certainly is a relief to have everyone safely here.

    Poor Bonnie; poor Boeris. The things I learn on these blogs.
    Lovin’ it.

    • Teresa June 20, 2015 at 11:49 am #

      Probably more than you want to sometimes. 😉

  11. Gayle June 20, 2015 at 10:22 am #

    Maybe Boeris will think you’re ‘kidding’ about his departure.

    • Teresa June 20, 2015 at 11:49 am #

      LOL I haven’t told him yet.

  12. Gunilla June 20, 2015 at 1:12 pm #

    Poor Boeris, but you have to keep everyone safe. The kids are so cute.

    • Teresa June 20, 2015 at 4:21 pm #

      It is definitely not what I expected, but I can’t deny that his kids are dangerous to all the girls.

  13. Gemma Wiseman June 20, 2015 at 7:10 pm #

    Wow. what a feat for both the goats and you too. Lleny looks as if he is saying… ‘More bodies to control’… Love the expression on his face.

    • Teresa June 20, 2015 at 7:47 pm #

      He was just fascinated. He came over because Bonnie was screaming, and then there were more goats!

  14. Gattina June 21, 2015 at 1:28 am #

    Poor Bonnie, but finally it ended good. Love the expression on Lleny’s face !

    • Teresa June 21, 2015 at 8:06 am #

      I am very glad to have all the kids safely here.

  15. Marie-AZ June 21, 2015 at 10:18 am #

    Wow…that’s a lot of kids, does and bucks! But they are definitely cute! I am so impressed with your farm!

    Congrats on your larger flock, Teresa!

    You have a lot of kid birthings to oversee and I can see why you’re relieved it’s over.
    Now to enjoy some baby cuteness.
