Since the end of April, we have received a number of babies to our farm. Destiny gave birth to twin girls on Sunday May 4. They are beautiful with each a different ear type.
Esther surprised us on May 2 with just one baby girl, a BIG baby girl weighing in at 10 pounds. We spent several concerning days evaluating Esther's condition because she has had multiple kids in previous years; last year she produced a group of four kids. As our best milker, she also lost use of her left udder. Fortunately the baby modified eating habits. This kid is our first goat with waddles in five years. Esther always was unique.
With Esther's condition unknown to produce milk, and her one kid, we decided to seek help. We found Judy and Terry in Harvard, who had a number of orphan babies. We adopted three kids, as seen above. Because of overcrowding where they were born, they were quite thin. In addition, we found Abby, seen to the right. Her baby boy show above is quite fat. Abby is now sharing milk with the orphans.
Since then, we have been very busy feeding kids, organizing, watching Esther's condition for milking, and waiting for Gracie to kid. She has been calm and getting bigger by the day. With her babies' birth we finish kidding season.
