So much has been happening since then! Last Friday we added another baby goat to our family! Iris, our black Nubian, had her baby! She only had one, which surprised me, because in the past she has had triplets. But we were good with it because we just had the 4 from Sophie! Iris had a little girl! I named her Daisy. She's a sweetheart...

Isn't she cute?

We re-joined him with his mother and siblings, and SO far everything is going well... He has now learned to play fight bumping heads.... Big fun!
Here are some pics from a few days ago of some of Sophie's 3 that weren't in the house...

They are all doing so great and I have been loving the experience of having babies on the farm again!!! I have been milking a little bit on Iris, because she doesn't have enough babies to relieve the milk supply. On the weekend, we will probably be separating the babies from the mom's and bottle feeding all of them... It took me an hour to do chores this morning, only having to bottle feed ONE. It may be taking a bit more time in the future!!!
Padme, our other little female that is possibly bred, looks as though she COULD have a baby or so, but we will have to see. She could have a baby any day, but it may also be another few weeks. We don't have the exact date from the lady where we had them bred. So we will just have to keep and eye out!
I will be bringing you MORE pics really soon!
