    Congrats! For my first mama, I just poured some molasses into the water and mixed until it's good and brown, like a dark tea... She didn't like it to be too intense tho, she stopped drinking once it got to the richer stuff at the bottom, so at that point I added more water and she gulped it down.

    I had never done that before, did it Sunday and they both really loved it. Probably a couple tablespoons in a quart of warm water, mixed up good. Mine are smaller goats, don't know how much of it is enough.

    Thank You everyone for the info and also for the sweet comments on our first ever kidding of goats on our farm. :) Mom and both boys are doing fine and it is so much fun watching these two kids . They are amasing.. :love: :lovey: We put one of our large plastic dog kennels ( I go to dog shows and show my akitas so it's large)in the birthing pen for them and they have both snuggle up in it already, just too cute. I'll be taking pictures today so I can share with my friends and goatie friends on here to, thanks again for all the info you put on here for newbies , it sooo helped. :grouphug:
