    Minuet was having good contractions about the time I normally feed the goats in the evening so we decided to get the feed together and go down to feed and check her while there. Then we'd watch her from the house till she was ready. Well she beat us to the punch. I got down there, noted that she was still in her chosen spot and not begging for feed. So I proceeded to start feeding goats until I saw her pushing out a bubble. So I ran to get started. Got towels etc ready and waited. Out popped a kid, dark buckskin! Didn't expect that! Got to drying it off, checked and its a :girl: and put it on a fresh towel and handed it to my daughter as I saw a second kid coming. Out plops a mostly white with gold spots kid. Commence to clearing its airway and wiping it off. Its FREEZING tonight! Suppose to be down to 19 degrees. UH! Check, its another :girl: YAY!!! Finally my buck trend is breaking! Yay! Look behind Minuet to see if she's got another bubble coming and on the straw is another kid. Grab it up and start wiping its face and sucking the goo from its mouth. Smaller kid who's nearly all white and blue-eyed. Check and its a :boy: . So Minuet is finally done. Since the kids were sluggish due to the cold we used a blow drier to dry them and a heat lamp over top of them to keep them warm. Decided it was too cold and brought them in. They're in the utility room. The new buck of Anna's is doing exceptionally well so we put a heat barrel in her stall. He immediately took right to that. Did the same for Hallelujah's boys and they did too. Thank goodness. I'll be so happy when this cold crap is gone!

    I'm exhausted! Seen all kids nurse though I had to help the buck, he's not near as strong as his sisters. Hope he makes it!

    All the babies are doing great this morning! Here's a couple group shots of them. I'll have to get individual pictures later.

    Re: Minuet Kidded!!!

    You know I haven't even looked closely really for moonspots. I am hazarding a guess that the dark buckskin doe is polled but its nearly impossible to tell.

    The little buck was nursing happily while we held him under the udder to drink. This morning he's nursing on his own! Isn't that wonderful!!!

    I'm EXHAUSTED!!! I made up for the lack of sleep last night and hubby checked them this morning when he got ready for work. I'll get pictures today.

    Here's some individual pictures. They were playing around so I ran in to get pics. LOL

    Z4 (name coming soon!) I think she might be polled. Can't tell yet about moonspots. Doeling...
