New Kids!

We had two new goat kids born on Sunday.  Mother Simone (a first freshener), new doe Santiago (pronounced “SAN-dee-ay-goh,” like the town in California, not “san-TEE-ah-goh” like the town in Chile), and new buck Solway are all doing fine.  This brings our total of kids for the season to a round dozen – 5 does and 7 bucks.

Simone had not given any indication that she was ready to kid, so the babies were something of a surprise when we got back from running errands.  But, they were cleaned up and walking around, so it wasn’t a big deal.

Only one doe left that might kid, so we’re getting ready to move towards the spring season and revamping the farm.  If only the snow would melt.
