Isn't this little guy just adorable?? :) Wow I've been super busy lately, the kid count is up to 11, and yes I've got some stories about birthing adventures. :) Plus narrow escapes from mad mama cows...and normal farm life I guess. :D But for now I'll just leave you all hanging and hopefully get more pictures of the kiddo's soon and maybe have some time to sit down and do a long post. :)

First Baby Goats!!

Well Main Attraction finally decided to have those babies!! She started having contractions around supper time last night and kidded at about midnight, so pretty much right on her due date. :) Everything went pretty well, I was getting a bit concerned as she kept pushing and I wasn't seeing anything so I had Caleb come up (because everybody else was in bed except for my faithful little helper Hosie) to help hold her as I was beginning to wonder if the kid was presented correctly. But by the time he came up she was really getting down to business and finally out came a big ole buck kid. Number 2 followed shortly after and was also a buckling. Bummer! I was so hoping to have a doeling out of her and also had somebody that deposited on one...but oh well not much I can do about it I guess. They sure are cute little guys though, even though they are boys. :D LOL and Main Attractions udder is looking very nice. Praise the Lord for healthy babies!

First Baby Born!!

But not a goat yet... :) One of Elijah's cows had a little heifer yesterday, she is sooo adorable!! We had just been making guesses the day before on which would go first, my goat or Elijah's cow...and most everybody thought it would be baby goats first, but we were wrong! :D Only 3 more days until Main Attraction is due though, so it should be soon.

Meanwhile we were able to get the new "baby barn" all framed up, now just to put the metal on and then build a pen around it, will be very nice!

Wow with all the snow melting it is quite the mud mess outside, it was pretty interesting driving the 4 wheeler through it taking hay out to the goats this morning...fun though and reminded me of just how much I love farm life...despite the mud. :)
