Done Kidding

2 Jul

We finished kidding for 2016 today.  When the goats came up from pasture, I went to check them and found Litha in the barn in labor.  I didn’t find Reva anywhere.  After trying to decide who needed my attention more, I called my mom to come hang out with Litha and I went to find Reva.  Luckily, I could spot her down in the pasture from the barnyard, so I knew right where to go.  When I got close, I saw her and her twin boys.

I had my son come out and help me get her back to the barnyard.  We put the kids in a pet taxi in the back of the Ranger, and we had Reva stand in front with us.  It was a bit crowded, but we got to the barnyard.

There’s still time to join in Friday’s Hunt this week.  If you want to, the items for this week’s hunt are at the top of my side bar.
