3 little doelings and...

The three little doelings names changed today because Mike wanted an "AppalLucy." Story below. Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats. Last night, they appeared to have more red in 'em but today they are dark gold and white.

First, the "Appal" is for Appalachian Mountains. We live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Appalachians. *** Now for "AppalLucy." Mike has always liked Appaloosa Horses but he pronounces Appaloosa like AppalLucy. He said that the third doeling looked like an AppalLucy.
Now, keep your fingers crossed for SweetPea, she is in labor. Last year, she had to have a C-section [Gabbi]. She's been laboring for a while now but nothing yet, let me get back out to the barn with her.

Love these new pics; those babies are amazing! She does look a bit like an Appaloosy.
