Our pygmy goat, Sassy, had her kids (2) about half an hour ago. They're both standing. :) Will report back tonight.

Jason, about 6"-8" but these 2 aren't pure pygmy. Our Boer got out of his pen and "had his way" with all the girls last fall. We lost the oldest one about 2weeks ago. She had 4 and apparently the stress of birthing was too much for her. 3 of the kids were stillborn and the other died shortly after. But we have 3 more does that should be kidding in the next few weeks.

Our first baby goat was born not more than an hour ago. :woohoo: The grand baby wanted 'to walk to the barn and see the horses' :D After that we had to go and look at the goats and Willow was not with the herd. The search was on ... and a short time later we find her and her new baby buck.:D

Boy did I have a lot of question to answer. LOL

Doesn't everything taste like chicken? :D

Pics? Sorry, something is wrong with the camera. It won't stay turned on long enough to take any. I'll take it to be looked at sooner or later. Probably later. :rolleyes:

I forgot to post the latest additions, actually the end of the goat additions for this year. 2 more girls about 2 weeks ago and a boy and a girl 2 days ago. That makes an even 20. Here is everyone together about 2 hours after the last 2 were born.



Now we have 3 hens setting. We're developing quite a zoo around here. :rolleyes:

Love the picture!!!!!!!:D

Our goats and the jacob are finished for the year... a buck/ram year for the most part ... but as my hubby said ... "more to put up this fall ... we will have lots of meat for the table.":D

Waiting on the icelandic to drop but I 'know' one will be a cross with the jacob and not due till July. (waiting is hard:gaah:)lol

Thanks for the picture...:2thumb:
