    O my. I got up all night and nothing happened, she kidded starting around 1 this afternoon, the weather is beautiful. She is tending to all of them and they have all eaten. Don't know if she will be able to feed them all. Figures it would be all boys. I do need bucks this year, though. So 6 or 7 to go. I had good help.

    And here they are:

    Re: Fresca had four boys!

    They are kinder goats, second generation. Some maybe too long ears, but we'll see. It's a bit soon to tell. Last year she had one that looked just like a mini nubian. And he kept looking like that. I am not culling for ears, in any case. They just need to have the good goat characteristics that matter for health, and the meat character as well as the dairy things. Fresca makes a lot of milk. Her wether from last year might have made a good buck, but she was a FF and I just wasn't keeping any FF bucks. This year I have a lot of choice, she needs to give me a doe. Maybe next year.

    Thanks you. Yes, the black and tan is colored mainly like his dad, except for that white top knot. One is black and white and one is blonde, and one is solid black.

    As massive as she was, I was hoping there were at least triplets...but quads! Fantan sure likes to throw his color...the one with the nubi looking ears really sticks out! ADORABLE... Congratulations on a healthy, happy delivery!

    Re: Fresca had four boys!

    Thanks, I have signed them off to momma for the night, there are heat lamps in there and it is as warm as it has been for months. I found a little thermostat thingy that goes on at 35 and off at 45 to control the heat lamps. It works too.

    Hope they will all be going in the morning.

    Today they spent a lot of time outside. The solid black one is the most adventurous.
