    Awww they are adorable! Congrats! And how ironic on the coloring! How is mama doing? I know you said she tore pretty bad, did you have to do anything with the tear, or just treat/clean it? Just curious, that is a subject I've never really looked up before.

    I'm thinking the doeling will be Faint-Hearted Ranch Raindrop and the buckling will be named by his new owner. :)

    Awesome! Weird that they are black/white if their parents and grand-parents are not. It is totally possibly though, that at least one grand-parent plus one parent had a recessive gene for black. Genes are so fascinating. I wish that it was more well documented in goats. With horses, you can test for all sorts of genes, the latest being the grey gene I believe.

    Everyone having kids this winter have kept me so distracted and have given me my kid fix so well...that I hardly even noticed the time flying by on my pregnant girls. Only 2 1/2 months until my first kids of the year, and for many others who start their season in March. :)

    Well, Miss Muffets sire is solid black and Triton's Grand sire on both his dam and sire's side is black... so that's where the black came from. :) It was just surprising because she's always thrown tri's. :) I guess that's genetics for ya. :) I'm extremely happy with the coat on these kids though... they are just AWESOME!!!!
