Terrific Twosomes

17 Nov

For some reason I got to thinking about my old ladies and how I don’t often keep both kids from twins, but two of my oldest goats are twins–Stormy and Litha, born in 2008.

Litha in 2015

They are the first set of two I kept because I just couldn’t decide which one to keep.  Then I had an epiphany and realized I could keep them both if I wanted to.  So I did.

Stormy from 2017

There are only two other sets of twins left in full:  Bonnie and Blaze (b. 2011)

and Sidney and LilyAnn (although they are two of a set of triplets).  Honestly, their brother was the only nice one of the bunch.  Dang sweet boys.

Anyhow.  I kept Flower and Bud (b. 2010), and Flower is still here.

Casey is here, but I just lost Cookie earlier in the fall.  They were also two of a set of three.

I still have Coral (2011), but we lost her twin, Clover, last year.

Haley (b. 2011) lost her (triplet) sister Harley last year also.

I kept two sets who are both gone now–Maggie and Marley.

And Pistol and Vinnie.

I sometimes can’t believe how long I’ve been raising goats now.  They certainly do have a way of stealing your heart.

    That was very interesting! I had Noooo idea you’d kept that many twins. They were/are beautiful!

    Hello,

    They are all so darn cute, I would want to keep them all. I love their names too.
    Take care, have a happy day!

    They are truly a handful, aren’t they? My neighbor got a brother/sister years ago and wasn’t quite ready for what is truly required!…:)jp
