Awww congrats guys she is so cute.
Trickyroo you may think I am crazy but I think I would want to miss the birth if everything goes right. That way I don't have to freak out and worry during it even if things go smoothly. I think waking up to a dry healthy kid is ideal!!!

Oh I LOVE the smell of baby goat! Little Guy and Sunny love giving hugs, so while they're hugging me I'll just bury my nose in their little fuzzy necks. LOVE baby goats.

Thanks guys :) I do love the heck out of this little bundle , lol


Skyla , i just love that name ! Its so fitting for her :)
It even looks pretty typed , lolol

I can so relate to baby goat smell ! I just snuggle the heck out of her !
She has the cutest expressions too , she has tiny eye brows that are adorable , lol Every minute I notice something new about her !
Im curious what color you guys think she is ......
Her fur is light looking at it , but very dark underneath if you brush it against the grain. Chamois , is that what this color is called ?

She is just the perfect little bundle of love :D

Oh for Pete's sake why can't she be a twin :(. lolol
She did great through the night , momma Mocha was ever vigilant
I Was happy to see Mocha finally take a good nap.
Made sure I gave her her worm meds too she is such a wonderful momma ! It's such a blessing to watch her with baby ;)
Is there anything I'm forgetting to give baby or Mocha ?
Just want to make sure baby and mom continue to thrive.
Mocha still looks a bit tired but she is so happy to show me her baby.
If I talk to baby Mocha talks along with me :):):):)
Geez I can just sit here all day with them, lolol

after kidding protocal here is

mom gets:
wormer
Probios
fresh water and feed of course

I think you've done great. Just watch momma's eyelids, stress can bring on wormload. Since I worm herbally, I just give them an extra dose after kidding, with extra molasses of course! First day or two, they get molasses water if they want it. Molasses also, evidently, fights anemia so it will be good after bloodloss. Kids here get some selenium. I only dip the cords right after birth as too much iodine can be toxic.

As long as baby and momma are happy, baby's tummy is full and momma's udder isn't TOO full, then you're set to go!
