OMG! That is exactly what I said out loud....Soooo Adorable. I want to hug and kiss them. Beautiful babies. Congratulations. Must get back to the pictures now so I can adore them a bit longer.

Barbara said...

Oh man I wish your hubby would have had the camera on you so we could have seen the joy on your face. That would have been just as adorable as all the pics of the babies. I am so happy for you.

Melodie said...

They are so gorgeous! Quads ! How lucky ! Congratulations ! Will she be able to feed 4 or will you have to supplement them some with a bottle? I am just so happy for you!

Absolutely gorgeous. My favorites are Grits and Pixie.

Can Clara raise all 4 on her own?

YAY! I knew it! I knew it was goin to be quads!

I know Clara feels much better with the babies out, but I bet they are fighting over who gets a teat. Yikes!

How exciting. The kids are here!

Way to go Clara!!!! We had two sets of quads once and it was such fun on the farm. Bet your quads will bring lots of laughter to you and hopefully photos for us.

Kill me now. I've seen all the cuteness the world has to offer. And unless you let me come visit and sleep in the Moat surrounded by Grits and Pixie and Clarence and Chamonix, It really is curtains for me.

Precious. So jealous!

Mahala said...

Of course, Mike is the best-looking male in the photos, but "Grits" is a very close second!! How much cleaning does the mother do? how much do you do? They all look fluffy!

thecrazysheeplady said...

Oh how cute!!! Can momma raise all four or will you have to bottle a couple?

Joanna@BooneDocksWilcox said...

We're hopng Clara can handle all the mothering duties, she has an XL udder, and she's quite attentive to all four. We've seen all nurse but Chamonix but I'm sure she has been hitting the milk buffet too.

DebH said...

So Glad to hear all is Good!! Quads is just amazing!! You told me in a comment recently that MIKE was the feeder and your girls were a little pudgy? Well, sounds like the feed was needed AND it sure worked on making that girl one Fertile Myrtle!! I bet she can handle all those babies if she has a nice size udder. Also, those are all colors of babies there, that is just REALLY Cool!! :)

Callie said...

They are very cute kids! You just want to hug and cuddle them.

Jennifer said...

Congratulations! They are all just adorable. Clara must carry her pregnancy weight well, she looked big but not 4 kids big!

What beautiful kids. Such tiny little faces. Our Ruthie was small but not that small. They are truly the "littles". Hope you guys got through the storm without any problems. Good job Clara. Do you have to bottle feed with 4?

Flartus said...

Amazing! I didn't know such a thing was possible. Ouch, poor Clara. But she must be some kind of mom! I think Pixie's got to be my favorite; she's tiny and adorable, but ready for action. "Maaaaaan! Put me down, I got stuff to do!!"

AJ-OAKS said...

4!!! Clara had 4! Isn't that a lot for a goat? They are all so adorable. Congrats to you and Clara! :)

My lady showed Pixie's yelling photos to a friend and she said it was "the scariest goat picture" she's ever seen. hee hee hee
She doesn't like goats so we have to tease her! I think they are all gorgeous and my lady's Grandpa was called Clarence!
