Java and Jericho

Thursday night, Fashion disappointed me by giving me twin bucklings.  She is our goat with the highest butterfat content, and I really wanted to keep a doeling out of her.    Imagine my joy when her daughter, Fantasmic, gave us twin doelings Friday morning!  Tazzy’s butterfat isn’t quite as high as Fashion’s, but it’s still impressive.

 Welcome to the family, Java and Jericho!

Colter got to take care of both babies and make sure they had enough colostrum.  That’s not his usual role (he spends more time with the moms), so it was fun to watch him!

It was a super easy, super quick delivery (the kind we like)!  Both babies presented properly and Fantasmic had no trouble with either one.  

Nine pregnant goats done.  Eight more to go!

Kid count: 8 bucklings. 10 doelings.
