meet O'Pea and ClaraBelle

On a cold, and windy night, my dear SweetPea had two healthy babies[4/2/11]. A buckling named O'Pea and a doeling named ClaraBelle. The baby daddy is Red Holstein. * A couple of hours before the babies arived, SweetPea and I in the stall just waiting. Like a good Mama, I kept massaging her back. * O'Pea arrived first, I caught him as he came out.

After SweetPea got him cleaned, then she popped out ClaraBelle, I caught her too.

SweetPea up and drinking her hot, molasses water.

Cali and "Bruno" in another stall.

These goats say, "we've been kicked out of two stalls!"



Do you think the livestock-guardian puppies have bonded?

And it all went so well! Congratulations to you and the goat mommas. I'm really proud of SweetPea, considering how far she's come from her first experience as a mother!!!

How do you ever part with them...they are so cute. I used to work on a Standardbred horse breeding farm..loved the newborn foals.
