    We had to go to a funeral Saturday, and of course that morning I found two of my does to be in labor.

    MANY thanks to Kelly (flightsoffancy) for being such a great friend and goatie midwife! She rushed to our rescue, and delivered these twins! Emma is no easy kidder by any means.

    Sire is Oldesouth SF Blue Maverick. The buckling looks like a lighter version of mom, and the doeling is a FLASHY chocolate!

    Thanks! These are my DH's pet project - they're half mini silkie and half nigerian - which actually works out to being 3/4ths Nigi. We have two mini silkie does, DH's eye candy...and they always have adorable, long haired kids. Love it!
