    This is our goat's second kidding, but our first time. We were so nervous! Two beautiful doelings! Here are some pictures:

    Eclair the night before kidding - she was as wide as a house!

    Pushing, just before the camera died. {We didn't get to photograph the kidding like we were hoping}

    Left - Maddy; Right - Charlotte


    We were a little worried about Maddy at first, because her hoof looked so big in the bubble before she came out. But everything went fine. When she came out I was shaking something awful from being so nervous, lol. They are both eating well and getting used to their land legs [​IMG]

    I just can't believe that we really have babies now!!! [​IMG]
