    Goat kids that is! My Mother checked on them a couple of hours before and everything seems as normal. I went out a couple hours later and what do I see - two very healthy 'large' kids. One boy and one girl. I got my other doe!!! Too cool! I dipped their navels in iodine and mom is doing very well and seems really happy and content. We buried the afterbirth in the middle of the compost. Both the kids have nursed so I know they got some colostrum.

    Ready??? The kid next to mom is the girl... she even has wattles like mom.

    In this picture Cali was touching noses with Bieber, but as usual she moved just as I clicked...

    And here is doting dad! (or should I say Grandpa???) He isn't leaving Cali's side for anything - well not yet anyways! It was cute - he was helping Cali clean the kids. He said "Oh here Cali clean her nose.", and he held the kids head in his hand and Cali licked the face clean! Of course I didn't actually catch that on camera, but this is close enough...

    I'll post some more when they are all clean and bouncy...

    Thanks everyone! I was so worried about her. I have been reading about goats giving birth and it seems more and more have problems giving birth, but she musta sailed right through it. I am so glad everything turned out well (so far)... :clap:
