    To give you an idea of the size of the babies - my son is 2 yrs old.

    OH my goodness!! Goat cuteness overload!

    They are gorgeous--good luck with them! We have Nigerian Dwarfs and two of my does have a stay-over boyfriend [​IMG] with them right now--crossing our fingers for some babies late this summer!

    It is because of you that I got a buckling, Kate. They are not disbudded either.

    I feel a little pressure, now, LOL.

    I was surprised to read that you got a couple boys - and I was looking for disbudding scars and not seeing any...heehee.

    They were born April 12th. They are 10 days old. If we hadn't gotten them they were going to disbud and wether them both this weekend. They are just perfect for what I wanted. I knew if I held out long enough I would eventually find something in line with what I wanted. I never expected to find 2 that would fit so perfectly with what I had in mind.

    A pair of cuties! If you're not careful you're going to overload on cuteness around there with all those babies!

    They are cute! It is almost time for their bottle feeding so I have to go make the bottles - which is very odd because I never made bottles for my human babies. LOL
