Gosh! They're Adorable!

Buckling One came in at ten pounds. Little brother weighed 9.5 pounds.
I don't know why I am so enamored by these two new little, not so little, bucklings, but I am. So is their Mom.
All the nannies have done a great job with their kids this year. And two were first timers. Believe me, if one kid gets abandoned or neglected, it makes it hard on the goat herder, as well as the goat. I've had two goats show preference to one twin over the other in the past. Those kids don't do as well in the end - if they make it. These two boys have had a challenge being born so big and tall. Mom's udder is so big and low!
It took then half a day to figure out the mechanics of getting down to the teat to nurse. Belly flops pretty much do it.

Love your pics and your narrative. I'd like to come visit your farm next year to watch this stuff!

We can try and plan after I get the girls bred again!
I may be your way this summer - Seattle is how far??
