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.

They’re doing well too.

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.

      I’m glad to help out. If you want, we’re supplementing quite a few with bottles. You’d be more than welcome to stop in and help with feeding.

      As much as I enjoy kidding season, it’s a relief to have it done.

    Aww more babies! How sweet. 🙂 I know you said the one set of twins were boys. What about Litha May’s twins? I hope all those babies continue to do well. What a busy farm! Have a blessed day. 🙂

      Oh, I forgot to say. Litha’s white kid is a buck, and the brown one is a girl.

        How sweet. 🙂 Do you have names chosen for them already?
        Have a blessed day!

      • Teresa July 3, 2016 at 7:58 am #

        No names yet.

    They are all beautiful! Glad Reva was easy to find and get back to the barnyard.
