The babies were born last night! All THREE of them (the Fella was right).

The deets: She had them all by herself sometime between 4 and 8pm.  We checked on her and gave them all some ice for their water around 4 and then when we went to put them in for the night, there were babies! They are all boys (darn) and all healthy.  There is one guy who is bigger than the other two but none of them is worryingly runty. They are the sweetest things ever and Mama P is the best.  We moved them all into the new barn (supposed to be a kidding shed but she beat us to it!) which is still not completely finished.

So without further ado: baby goats!!!

The flip flop (a women's size 9) is for perspective.

    • Nigerian Dwarf goats are pretty little, not as little as pygmy goats but about the size of a porky Australian shepherd. The babies, especially where they’re triplets, are teeny! And sooooooo cute.

  1. oh my – we raise boer goats. this year our babies (25 of them), at birth, ranged from 7.5# to 14#. don’t you just love how they come out as perfect mini-me goats to their mommas? not like puppies or kittens who are kind of rodent-like. I LOVE GOATS!
