We’re Expecting!

No, not me. The goat! The vet came out to do a sonogram today and confirmed that Peaches is pregnant, with definitely one, maybe two kids. Hooray!

Getting the sonogram.

It might seem extravagant to get a sonogram for a goat, but it actually wasn’t very expensive, and getting the pregnancy confirmed is totally worth it.

It didn't come through in this picture, but on the screen we could see a tiny goat fetus!

Peaches, Hank and Diego.

Then Peaches went back to the pen to strut her important, pregnant self in front of her silly wethers.

  1. Your intro is a great “hook” (Literary devise that get’s someone’s attention) :-) Sounds like exciting times on the farmstead! Bet a little baby goat is pretty tiny. And on a related note, I”m hoping one of the two new hens we got will decide to sit on some eggs this Summer and hatch us a batch of little chicks as well.

    • She’s due in July, I can’t remember the exact date. We had her with one buck and they seemed to really like each other but it didn’t seem like they ever accomplished the deed, so we put her with a different buck and that seemed to work. But we’re still dealing with two possible dates and I can’t remember what they are exactly. Nigies are awesome! You will have fun with them.
