Showing guests a good time

On Tuesday Sprint gave birth to a single doeling, Celia.  Sprint is being a good mama.  I missed this birth.
Yesterday Clarice gave us two big bucklings.  The first one took a while to enter this world but all went well and the second one followed quickly.  We had guests from Michigan staying with us and they got to watch the whole thing.  We named the boys after them, Dr. Bahl and Devereaux.  Devereaux is the one screaming.

How do we entertain our city guests when they visit?

by letting them milk our goats, of course.
We have no more goats to kid for another 2 or 3 weeks so we get a nice break. 
Total babies so far - 7 girls and 6 boys.  All are now named.
Poppy - Chip and Ella
Luti - Roger, Darla and Benny
Flower - Elton, Hattie and Sprite
Fresca - Winnie and Rudy
Sprint - Celia
Clarice - Dr. Bahl and Devereaux


  1. Since shearing is done, shall I let my March guests deliver babies?

  2. I wanna milk next time I come!!
