    Dakota kidded around 1 A.M. the 26th of July with twin bucklings. Both have blue eyes as far as I can tell. The black and white one is a little slow, but he walks and eats just fine.

    I love the first buck. His other side is just as white, and the only brown on this face is his little nose and circles around his eyes. Looks like he has a mask on, or a helmet. I really wanted a quality buckling from this girl, so I hope he matures nicely. I have a nice buckling from her sister, but preferred one from her. That and her sister's buckling is enormous and might grow above height standards. He is nearly as tall as my 6 month old buckling at only 2 months. I DID want a girl or two, but I'm definitely happy with this pair. I'll probably wether the black and white one. He has a floppy ear on one side. Its funny. He also has white "bracelets" on all four legs, which I think is adorable. My husband dubbed him "Gomer" after Gomer Pyle. I'm calling the first one Gizmo...like the cute little Mogwi in the Speilberg movie, Gremlins.

    I took some photos of the boys when they were a day old. So, here are their fluffy pictures! I will be turning them out in a grassy paddock with mom when they are a little more steady on their feet and will take some out in the sunlight.

    Buckling 1 - Gizmo:

    I absolutely love Gizmo. His colors rock. His mom is amazingly level and ended up filling a gorgeous udder. He is still so young and goofy looking, we'll see how he looks in a month.

    Buckling 2 - Gomer:

    This guy has an adorable little face. It looks just like his moms. I think I lucked out again with blue eyes that should stay blue on both of these boys. This guy's right front leg was really crooked though you can't see it in this picture. It turned under to the inside when viewed from the front, although he had no problem using it. Its completely straight as of today.

    Both are ADORABLE...I'm partial to B/W goaties and Gomer is a cutie but I think that Gizmo will end up the better of the 2 as far as build goes...flashy too.
