    I have officially been blown right out of the water!

    Java kidded today at about 4:30 (after having just been checked on) with our first ever TRIPLETS!!!!!


    Not to mention, HER first ever triplets!

    All are doing well. There are two buckling and one doeling. The doeling is the solid chamoisee (brown) and the broken chamoise and broken blacks are the buckings.

    Isn't it strange how baby goats are usually headless most of the time! I have to take 10 pics to get one entire goat!
    Trips are always fun and as long as one isn't a lot weaker than the others, mom should have no trouble feeding. If one is a lotweaker, you may have to make sure he gets his fair share for a few days. With trips, they can be pretty restriced in movement before birth, not to mention cramped in position. If you watch, they will usually pile together to sleep more or less in their pre-birth positions for the first few days.

    I'd have to say those are the cutest babes I've seen. Good milking lines, eh? how would I go about finding some in my neck of the woods?
