Wow, it’s been forever since I’ve blogged. Funny how fast life can go sometimes when you’re bogged down in details.
We’ve been on baby watch for weeks now, not knowing when our girls got bred. Finally, the first of the month, two sets of twins showed up within hours. I had to care for one set, as Mozzie wasn’t at all interested in them. I had to run to the goat store (luckily not far away) to get milk replacer and spend the day feeding and keeping them warm. Each set was a boy and girl. The girls continue with the food theme and this year the boys are dedicated to the great banjo legends Earl Scruggs & Lester Flatt.
Ginger’s twins came first with no help…but Ginger bleated with each contraction. Motherhood hurts!
Mozzie’s babies slipped out quietly, but she didn’t want anything to do with Pepper once Lester made his appearance.
So they’ve grown well and have been vaccinated and disbudded. It’s fun to watch them run and jump all over. It warms your heart all over.
Until next time…
