Everyone here is excited because baby goats or "kids" are due on or about March 30th. Gidget can't wait to become and Aunt (or maybe she just doesn't want to be the smallest anymore).
Chip is so proud. As far as he knows all the kids are going to be his, Lord knows he has tried and tried. Unfortunately for poor Chip he is just a randy wether, but he will still make a good Uncle.
It was 0*F this morning so I took everyone out for a walk to warm up. During the hike I noticed that Addison was dripping a little mucus from behind, it looks like her plug may be coming unstuck. I guess the kids could come any day now. Her ligaments feel a little mushy so I think I still have a little time. Last night I put the baby monitor in the barn and listened to them all night. I am ready!
Here is a top shot of Addison that I took last week, even though this is her first time I think there are twins in there.
Some days I think Becca Boo is smaller and on others she looks bigger. Since Becca is a first timer I am predicting Becca has one large kid, I can't wait!
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
