    Marybelle kidded this morning at 10:50. I was headed to the mailbox, having just checked her at 10:30...when I heard her yelling. I got there in time (in flip flops, haha) to catch #1 coming out breech. I didn't have to help at all...and #2 was RIGHT on #1's head!!! There was NO delay between the twins at all. I did have to break #2 out of it's sack and help Marybelle get it all together (she's never had twins). All is very well though! Happy, healthy and nursing. Obvious to anyone that they're also Oreo babies! HAHA He was a potent boy!!! You almost can't tell these 4 kids apart!

    Janie is a broken black agouti, Marie is a broken black (our first ever non-agouti baby!).

    I have to quit looking at these posts of baby goats! I have wanted goats for years and thought that this year I could get some .... I'm going to get Nigerian Dwarfs.

    Anyway, due to my hubby being out of work since last Sept. I don't think I can add two more mouths to our family this spring and I'm really, really, really disappointed about it.

    They are so cute ... Momma looks very contended. Glad you were there to witness as that's a special event.

    Oh my gosh, they are so stinking cute...

    I'd love a few goats eventually, after we buy more land. Why do you keep goats? For milk? I'm just curious and would like to hear more.
