    Ummm . . . I totally pick him up and kiss his tiny face I give mom some animal crackers and bubbly bits and scoop up that kid for snuggles!

    Cinnamon has milk! Yay! That’s a big relief for me and she has really settled down. She’s not a very outgoing doe, low but still fairly secure on the pecking order. I have her mom, twin sister, and older half sister here and they are all strongly bonded. They are all the market does due for me. It makes a very fun pen of does and kids because there’s no posturing or pecking order to sort out between them.
     
  4. OMGosh he is adorable!! I can't believe 10 days early? Wow! Glad everything went smoothly! We had udder congestion last year and did the same, massages, warm compress, and Dynamint. Ours cleared up in 3 days but I couldn't get anything out when trying to get colostrum for the kid. Glad Cinnamon's cleared up now, he sure is a cutie! <3

    Twins for Sage! A boy and girl. She popped them out with no problem, clean and nursing within 20 minutes. Sage is quite the overachiever

    Penny popped out twins this morning. Another boy/girl set.
    Penny is our matriarch. The rest of the market breed does are her daughters. Penny is not a pretty goat or impressive. She has nice kids though and is great momma. She also has great feet, high parasite resistance, and she’s an easy keeper that’s pretty mellow with the other goats and easy to handle. She’s one of my vary favorites!

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
    Sounds like Penny and her daughters don’t need to be pretty girlies, they are lovable for many orher reasons!
    Cute kiddies! Thanks for sharing!

    Hey CB..those are Gorgeous kidds. Even show judges have different opinions & choices. All heritage lines have flaws. I agree with @MadHouse ..they are Beautiful in my EYES TOO...Even mama!

    While Penny will never win a show I’d rather have her than many other blue ribbon goats. When it comes to the qualities that make a goat a great production animal and a joy to own, Penny has them in spades!

    I had an Alexander day. It was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

    So I spent 45 minutes doing “health checks” in the barn.
