Tuckered Out

Hopefully all the sins have been found out in the barn and there will be no more kids this year.... unless Clarice has one in the oven and isn't showing it yet. I hope not.

Final tally:

Does: 5 (Lilac, Layla, Apple, Mollie, and Mara)
Buck: 3 (Charlie, Chuck, and Abe)

Pictures to come. I'm pooped...

Note to self: Talk to the does about responsible behavior whilst the Woman is gone.... just say "nooooooo..."


  1. I am gonna call you Matty the Midwife...LOL! Good gracious are you bottle feeding the babies?! Glad the births went well:-)

  2. I hate to burst your bubble but goats have NOOOO will power when it comes to a smelly buck!Lol
    Glad things are slowing down! How about pics of all those cuties?

    Right....goats listening to sides hurt!!!
    Midwife Matty....that's a good one!!

    Sorry....overcome with laughter....look at it this way: now you know what you DON'T want to be when you grow up ;)

  4. I leave the babies with their Mommies and start to introduce grain when they are interested. They always have hay available and some are already nibbling a little.

    Pictures tomorrow, if I get home before dark! Promise! I am dying over Lilac; she has "dangles" just like her mom on each side of her checks. Oh My Goodness! How can I keep from kissing her to death??

  5. Goat kisses! That's wonderful. I agree with Tonia ... Goat girls lose all sense of reasoning when they smell that stinky buck. They lose any morals they once possessed!

    When I found my registered LaMancha doe giving birth to Nubian/LaMancha cross bred kids ... I knew how bad their behavior can be. She had to back up to the pipe fence where the Nubian buck was with his Nubian girls. Shameful!

  6. Congratulations!! Looking forward to pictures!

  7. You know what they say, "where there's a will, there's a way". That was never more true than when it comes to animals and reproduction. Take that from someone who had to deal with dachshund mating with a German shepherd!


Thanks for dropping in on the farm today! I enjoy your comments!
