    I have never raised goats! They are adorable. Can you give the little one some bottle feeding supplements?

    She is a little smaller than her brother but that sometimes happens. She looks to be standing adn doing good. Just make sure she is nursing and if you need to bottle feed her a few times a day to make sure she is getting enough to eat, or just make her a bottle baby...I have 7 that I am feeding now and its not to hard to do. They sure are pretty babies...CONGRATS!!!

    I am so proud!! The mom is nubian/pygmy cross and the dad full nubian. They were our first so I have no idea about the colors. Guess we were lucky. Our other mama is due soon, she's part saanen and all white, bred to the same full nubian. We'll see if the color comes over for her too.
