    After what seemed like the longest pre-labor ever!! She started getting uncomfortable and squawking (we actually call her the "opera singer" at 1am on Friday. Uncomfortable all day yesterday, crying, panting. . . it was really worrying us because there was no discharge -- just not moving along very well and her cha-cha looked so small and puckered! She is my mom's goat and was raised on a bottle from day three, so is very, very special to my mom.

    Anyways, took her forever but she got down to business about 9:30pm -- pushing without a whole lot of progress. Called the vet and she talked me through it. Told me not to pop bubbles or anything, just in case. After a lot of work from Fudge a baby girl was born (HUGE!) and then a baby boy (very big too)! She is such a great mother, I hardly had to do any drying off, she cleaned them up and I helped them get nursing. They are big, healthy, and active. :)

    Boy is Charleston Chew - "Chuckles" for short.
    Girl is Divinity Amira - "Divine" for short. They are both caramels. One of them is a medium caramel and the other a light. Not sure which is which at this time but I think it's the girl. ;) They both look very similar though.

    Anyways, glad that's over!!

    Try to get pics later. . .

    Oh, yeah she got a big hug, warm molasses water (chugged that right down!) and lots of fresh hay. She's doing really great with motherhood. She is a bit "high-strung," a nervous goat, not nervous about people but just always so busy. . . some goats are just like that and she is. So, these babies will keep her busy! :)
