It’s 3:15 a.m. and Raining – The Perfect Time For Birthing Baby Goats

A doeling and buckling! Both are doing well. But, talk about a mess! It’s about 40F outside, raining steadily and we had an electrical fire in the barn. Thankfully, Karen had her wits about her and pulled the wiring with a fiberglass hook pole while wearing rubber boots. So, no one is hurt and nothing burned, except for a little wiring. Everything is fixed now.

We put extra hay in the goat house with Claire (the proud, protective and tired mother). The babies are suckling and standing up, albeit wobbly.

Will post pictures after the sun comes up!
