IT'S A GIRL!!!

Luna was born while I was in the house doing my quick update!

I went out the barn and she was already on the hay! That was incredible. I thought we were still in early labour!

She is black with a white spot on top of her head, like the moon on a dark night, so her name is Luna.

Here is a picture with my hand - her body is not much longer than my hand!

Look at her sweet little face!

She is standing and nursing already, and both she and Stuffin are fine! :-)

Congratulations! I will be checking back to see if a twin surprises you or if the placenta has come out and it's all over with.

What a beautiful little baby! Such a perfect name, too; I'm jealous of your ease with naming. So Stuffin knew all along just what she needed to do. What a tease! Congratulations on the happy ending.

Darn blogging! You missed the birth! lol!

I have a Luna, too. My Angora doe, but she's all white.
My sheep, Svetlana, which means Star, has a star on her head like your Luna.
What a sweet little goatie girl.

Congrats. I'm glad that the birth was uncomplicated for Stuffin, too.
