    This is kinda late, my camera decided it didn't want to download the pics, so I had to get them with my phone this morning. Yesterday afternoon she had :kidred: :kidred: with no complications. I went outside after I heard a horrible scream to discover she had kidded and a couple minutes later she had the other one. They're Ari (R-EE) (Artemis) and Athena. You can't see them in the pic, but Ari has waddles! Since she was preggo when I bought her, I have no idea who the father is. Athena does kinda have a pygmy head.

    AWWW, Congratulations, they are adorable.

    So glad it was a easy delivery. Walking out and finding happy healthy babies is the best.

    I'm thinking about keeping Ari, I just love her personality and color. Also, what would you call their color/pattern?

    Congrats! Those girls are super cute! I know Nigis have wattles, not sure what other breeds, though :)

    If you're super curious, you could ask the person you bought her from about daddy?

    Really any goat can have them. I have only seen a few Cashmere have them, and then I got two. I love them. They are also known as goat jewlery :leap:

    Her old owner probably doesn't know either. She was kept in a pen with a few other goats: a pygmy, her son, a fainting wether and another huge goat. The lady basically had them in her backyard and was feeding them cat food. :veryangry:

    Whats weird is, she doesn't have them and neither did any of the goats at her previous home.

    Where in Southeast TX are you? I'm near San Antonio. I really want to place Athena in a home where I can talk to the new owner. :pray: She's the first goat I actually got to see being born, so she's a little special to me.
