    I won't get into the long story, but we are bringing home two bottle bucklings today. We had bought their Mom, but she died before we could get her and the babies home. So now, we will be bottle raising these two. They don't have names yet and are two days old in the picture.

    Oh! Pretty little Lamanchas! I love Lamanchas. Those two have to be the cutest I have ever seen! I love how colorful they are! Sorry to hear about mom. That is sad.
    I do bottle babies every year. They are just the sweetest things...until they grow some and get obnoxious...lol.

    Thanks everyone! They have gotten two bottle from us today and are doing very well. Tomorrow, we will set them up with their own little area in the big goat pen. My boys named the brown one Nibbles and the black one Spot. They are both active and seem in good health.
