And they're off!

Finally, after a couple of false starts, those goatie girls have finally got their act together and started to have their babies.

First out of the blocks this afternoon was Freddie who produced 2 girlies and a little chap:

Virtually at the same time, in another corner, Patty was busy with two more little girlies:

And just as we were finishing milking this evening, our first goatling Bathsheba popped out two more females:

Not to be outdone, the Gracie moos have also been busy.  We have had 3 more calves in the past couple of days - the latest arrival got me out of bed around 4am this morning!

One of our older girls, Persi, is looking suspiciously like she has something on her mind tonight as well.  So, I'm back up there in a few mins to keep an eye on her.  Could be a long night ahead!

  1. Good news that the ratio of girlies to boys is so good (so far). Hope you don't have too many sleepless nights!
