I would like to interrupt our regular goat breeding programming (that’s a mouthful!) for a special announcement.
I know, I know, I promised in my last post.
I promised I would tell you what our problem was when it came to goat breeding. But I’m going to make you wait a little bit longer.
And for good reason.
Plus, this is directly related to goat breeding so I can’t feel too bad about changing things up a bit.
Lancelot is really excited about it. He was hanging around there all day. He would love for you to come on in to the
newly mostly finished goat/horse stall and see if you can guess what all of the fuss is about.
Any ideas yet? No? I’ll give you a hint. It’s hiding there behind the door.
Honey went into labor on Monday!
I am now a proud grandma (that sounds weird doesn’t it?) to a sweet…
Blue eyed baby boy! Meet Rusty.
I named him that. Just because… Don’t Honey and Rusty just sound cute together? And of course they look cute together.
Honey is an amazing mom, even though this was her first freshening (first time having babies) she knew just what to do!
It is actually somewhat rare for Nigerian Dwarf goats to have one baby, but more common when they are a first freshener. That means it is their first time having babies, remember?
I was worried that he would be lonely without a sibling but it seems like he and his momma are doing just fine!
He is the sweetest thing and comes up to say hi anytime I go out to see him.
Of course, I can’t let myself get too attached because ultimately we will be selling him.
But who am I kidding. I will get attached, and I will continue to enjoy him while I can. 🙂
The full birth story is coming soon, so now you have two things to look forward to. Right?
