Adeline's Boy

If it hadn't been for another storm brewing and a call to warn me, these two would likely still be outside. When I found them, the little guy was slipping in the mucus from his birth and making a nice little mud patch.  The flies had found him also. A problem in warm weather. Never in February!

Adeline did me a favor and had her buckling by the gate. A favor you ask? 
Well, this is the first time our goats have kidded this late in spring, and the browse and hay are very tall. Just as a precaution, I walked through the field and around the sheds in case there was another kid laying somewhere else. None was found.
Here's the little guy working his way to his feet as he looks for Mom's teat.
With fresh hay and grain, what do we eat - paper from the floor.  Well its clean for now. 
Already trying to get out and make trouble!
