It has been a very busy week around here and I haven't blogged in 8 days! Gasp! Sorry for the absence but it seems that life is getting in the way of blogging! I think it might be that way for a little while with all the goings-on around here, but I'll try to keep up to date with big news. So, speaking of big news...four baby goats have been born in the past 2 days on Whispering Acres!
Green Goat" post last year.
Coffee had two adorable doelings both weighing just over 2 lbs each. They are both bright white all over, despite Coffee's dark colouring.
Lotus also had two babies - a buckling and a doeling. They both weighed just under 2 lbs each. I'm not sure if that's standard for Nigerian dwarf-Angora cross babies or not. Lotus was pretty huge herself. She had some trouble with the delivery so I had to assist with the first baby, but after that she was fine with the second. Here she is still laying down with her two little ones, immediately after their birth. I had toweled them off a bit for her.
