New Kids 2017

Welcome back! I know there are quite a few people enjoying Spring Break right now. I hope you are having a wonderful time while you’re on vacation. We’ve been busy and so have our mama goats! We have 6 new goat kids. Serenity and River kidded at the same time. They both kidded on Monday…

Kidding 2014

We only bred two goats out of four this year, Annie and Sandy. Clover is at least 12, so we didn’t want to chance loosing her. It would be hard on her to have kids this late in life. Misty was so sick from mastitis last year that we wanted to give her a year…

Getting Ready for Kidding

Kidding Kit

I decided to post what we keep ready when our goats are getting ready to kid. The easier this information is to find for new goat owners, the better! This stuff is really important to have on hand, really. You can’t just expect to go out and find mama and kids all doing well, especially…
