It is a fine thing in life,
watching the beauty of God’s creation at work.
… we have babies!!
Our goat, Molly, gave birth this morning to three (3)! beautiful baby goats – two boys (ahem), and one lovely little girl, whom we will be keeping to add to our “herd”.
Molly is a LaMancha goat, hence the cute little non-ears, and her babies are a mix of SOMETHING and LaMancha. My father was really hoping for a girl with little ears (he likes those ;)), but had to settle for a cutie girl with long floppy ears.
We didn’t even realize she was in labor until we came out to do chores this morning and (Moma) saw hooves sticking out the back!
We decided that maybe 3 years old was a BIT too young for all the blood and guts that comes with birth…
and honestly, I don’t think Papa really wanted to deal with all the questions that would likely accompany such an event 😉
So here they are!
… we have decided to not name the male goats (stinky one and stinky two will have to suffice) as they will not be in our possession for long.
The female, however, has been dubbed
… Polly, for short.
