Mavis, thanks. She has been gtenitg LOTS of special attention lately!Paula, hah. No violet eyes! Though one of my favorite goats ever was named Violet Thanks, Toni! All congratulations go to T-bell.Ed, well, here you go with more cocktail-party factoids then: twins are common, singles second and triplets third. They can have as many as six (!!) but that's pretty rare.Ali, thanks, we'll need the luck and sleep!Sara, gosh if she WAS right we'd be in a world of pain. Three is a lot! And: zero on the doeling count Hi Mom, your kids would have loved to come visit then because they're 8x as cute in person, with their waggly tails and their little baasHi Mike. Three times the fun, certainly. Randi, can't wait for spring here so these little buggers can go out and run around. In no time, they'll be climbing the walls of the milk shed.Ah, Rurality, but they are all boys. It doesn't detract from their cuteness but does from their utility. Ah well. Hate to dump on the Y-chromosome but there you go.Jen, aren't they? You just want to hang out with them all day. Alas, I have a job to go to though.Thanks, Sylvie! Step by step, some steps take years. Whew!Hi Ashley. Nope, not so rare. Funny though watching it all happen. I think there's another one, I say to my husband. There can't be. I felt underneath her and indeed there was; #3 came a bit later than the rest.Hi Jenna! Goodness you could've warned me about your intuition Really, I knew she probably had 3 in there too by her size, especially toward the end. Everything went pretty textbook smooth, but the story doesn't end there. They're three bucklings, darn it all, so I will be looking for a doeling in a couple months once I unload these guys. #1 was tiny, #2 is HUGE, and #3 is also huge. I mean, TALL and skinny. They all look so much like dad, don't they? Hope you have more luck in the doeling department, and congratulations too with all your little babies! What an exciting time. She's accepted one baby and we're bottle feeding the other two (she's negative for CAE/CL). She likes little #1. BUT: she's doing great cleaning them all. And milking has been going well too although I certainly need more practice CC, Mama goat did it all, we were there just to wipe off their faces and towel them dry. Fun!Esperanza, any room for a mini goat in your back 40?John, they'll probably get a bit of brown on them under their chins, but coat heritability is kind of complicated. Two of these guys look exactly like their dad, but #3, who's got a lot of white on him, is some kind of throwback. And thanks Jenna! I tend to take a day to answer everyone glad you stepped in.
