Kids of my own

My goat kidded on Monday morning, two little girls all on her own. I got ‘the call’ whilst I was at work which brightened up the day. I still haven’t managed to take any decent photos of them but will in the next couple of days.

They are in with Lenka and her kids and yesterday I weighted them all; my two are 1.77kg and 1.57kg while Lenkas are 2.58kg and 2.59kg. Such a big difference considering they were only born two days apart. Middle-younger-sisters goat also kidded, a single boy. They are in a different house and we didn’t weigh him although we should as he’s massive.

Lamb count now stands at nine, five girls and four boys.

  1. Sounds as if you are busy with lambs and kids, we’ve got a month to go before our lambing madness starts.
    Thanks for your kind comment on my blog, looking forward to the new job

  2. It sounds like a busy, but exciting time with all the babies being born. I look forward to seeing the photos of your kids.

  3. goodo 🙂 looking forward to seeing the pictures – do you think goats are easier to kid than sheep to lamb?

      I think like sheep it depends on the goat, most will kid on their own but their is always the one, like sheep, who needs help most years
