Our family's homesteading adventures in the mountains

New kids!

Saturday was full of excitement at our house.  We had been on goat watch because our Nubian, Rita,  was due on Sunday.  Katy and I checked her before lunch.  It looked like the kids had dropped but there was no other evidence of labor.  After lunch Nick went out to check her.  He came running up to the back door.  The kids were out!  I thrust Talia into Brian’s hands and ran outside.  They were standing up, wet, and crying.  Everyone snapped into action.  We had to move them to an enclosed barn and get heat lamps on them.  Our friend and goat mentor, Amy, came over right away to help us out.  We have two kids – a boy and a girl.  They are doing well and have yet to be named but here are some cute pictures of them.
