Baby Goats

Yesterday Mom and Dad came to pick me up at Debbie's. I had a very nice time over there, its like a little mini holiday spending time with my dear friend Alise (niece) and my other niece and nephew. It was a perfect day for me to come home, last night at 10 pm we got to watch little baby goats being born.

Mom had a little towel to dry off their ears when they were born because it was -20 and if we left it damp, the ears would have froze and fall off. We went inside and waited another 10-15 minutes to see if she had another little baby.

Sure enough there was another baby, Mom dried it off and checked what kind of gender it was. They were both twin boys. We have 2 sets of twins that are boys right now. 2 Mama goats giving birth down, 3 more to go...

We set up a little box for the goats to sleep inside because it was getting really cold that we couldn't let them go outside. Mom was milking the goat so that we had milk for the night. Mom and I bottle fed them inside and at first they didn't know what to do but then they got the hang of it.
