Clean Kids

21 Mar

I’m still behind on coming up with names for kids, but I’m at least feeling up to taking pictures of them now. I think Wanda’s girl is the only kid I’ve shared a picture of once they were dried off.  She seems to be my good poser for this group of kids.

These are Ava’s kids.  The one on the left is her boy, and the one on the right is her girl.

Wanda and Ava are two that are still coming back into the barn at night to avoid the mud. I don’t know how Ava keeps her kids so clean (the black mark on the girl’s back leg below is really a black spot, not dirt).

Astra, on the other hand, tends to have muddy kids.  It’s not just because she is standing in mud feeding them.

I swear I tried getting pictures of Astra’s two girls, but every time I see them, they are nursing or racing through the mud.  Seriously, these two girls are non-stop on the go.

That’s a good thing, but I’d like them to slow down enough for me to catch them and give them some snuggles.  Blaze’s boy is also an active kid, but he does like to come and take a bit of an extra bottle since his maa is recovering from mastitis.  And look, he has a name!


We’re actually helping several kids get filled up right now.  Not surprisingly, Joani has a hard time feeding three kids.

Her little girl (standing) is quite happy to get an extra bottle every so often.

Although she just wants the food.  She’s not a snuggler.

    All kids seem to love the mud. Glad you are feeling better.

      Goats usually hate to be wet or muddy. Astra’s girls don’t seem to notice. They are just too busy.

    You sound as if you’re doing better — that’s really good news!
    The babies are all adorable! Some are cuter than others, but I don’t want to hurt anyone’s little feeings!

  3. I wa sorry to hear you were not well and missed some kidding but hopefully now you are on the mend. Just be careful. I like the names so far that you have chosen to give to the kids
