I had a nice surprise waiting for me this morning. Pessa gave birth to a sturdy, beautiful little girl. I hadn't expected babies this year because Pessa and Luti are getting pretty old and neither showed any signs of pregnancy, even though we keep a buck, Dagwood, with them. Two days ago I thought Pessa's backside looked a tiny bit swollen and then yesterday I thought her udder might be getting a bit bigger. I was sure it was wishful thinking, because lately I've been envious of all the cute baby goat pictures I've been seeing on Facebook. This was a very nice present, a single girl. I decided to call her Breezy, since we've been getting some serious winds the past 2 days.
She's very laid back and friendly so far. Right away she wanted to be held. She's not shy. She took a nap in my arms for 15 minutes and then I had to put her down because she's so heavy for a newborn.
It's still breezy here today but nothing like yesterday's winds that blew up some of the roofing on our garage and uprooted a big pine tree. We're lucky we didn't get the snow like some of my family got in PA. It was 50 degrees here but felt more like 30.
