This is Malina aka Twinkle Lil Star. She is here at CBF getting geared up for her first kidding.
This is Shakespeare - cute little wether who went to a 4H family here to show.
Dixie - princess of the universe (LOL!) She is quite content after having her fill of milk and a good soft bed to sleep in. Dixie is one of our most playful goats here at CBF - even now with her pregnant belly she is often found on the slide or little climbing toy. She'll probably be up there playing with her kids when they come!!!!
Two of the Triplets (Malina makes 3) This is Crash and Racer who now reside at Lauging Orca Ranch as Mudd Pie and Moon Pie. I so wish I could post more baby pics - I have tons. But these will have to do until kidding commences at CBF (March 1, 2009 is our first due date!)
Our philosophy here is to be there in case we are needed but we prefer a pretty much hands off approach. I stay in the kidding barn until the last baby is cleaned up and I can get their bellies done (dipping cords) and I make sure they are nursing well then it is time for momma and babies to bond. Of course we can't help but be out there as much as possible, who can resist lavishing attention on these adorable babies!!!! AS such, our dam raised babies usually wind up being more like bottle raised spoiled lab goats. Oh well, I can think of worse problems to have.
Thanks for peeking at last years kidding season- come visit us again in March - May when our babies all show up for spring!!!!
