The goats, Rex and I followed the beam of my flashlight to find 4 glowing eyes - 2 up high and 2 down low. I knew I had missed it once again. It appeared he had just been born because he was still covered in birthing fluids and Raisa hadn't passed the afterbirth. I checked to see if it was a boy or girl and wasn't surprised at all that it was once again a boy. I wonder if I'll ever get a girl from her. Maybe next year she and Franklin can make a beautiful red heifer. I told Raisa she did a good job and congratulated her then left her to clean him up.
This morning after milking the goats I went to visit her and see him better in the light of day. He's a cute little guy, of course. He seems tiny and he's still very curly and slippery but he's been up and around so I imagine he's eating well and healthy. I asked Raisa what she wanted to name hime. She said, "mooooo". I told her that name was overused and maybe we could shorten it and call him Mo.
She didn't argue so that's what I'm going to call him.
