First Kids

The goats weren't due to start kidding until April 1, but Tickle decided to go a little early.  
 They were still out roaming over most of the farm but J's excellent checking skills saw her in this wooded section.  V's boyfriend volunteered to help get them to the barn.
 Of course it was raining so everyone was wet and muddy but at least it wasn't cold.  Tickle is one of E's bottle goats from several years ago so because she is more of a pet she was pretty easy to work with.  Her triplets are all doing fine.
 So now the rest of the herd is in the lot near the barn.
Looks like this one might be next.

Someday I would love to see newborn goat kids! Jenna gets her 4-H goats when they are weaned...still sooo cute, but much bigger. I hope kidding goes smoothly!
