Lucy and Lucky are indeed adorable! I'm cheering your successes and sending hugs for the losses.


They are too cute! I hope they stay well and grow big and strong.

Rebecca (eco felter in rural Ireland)

Our goats arrived couple of weeks ago, one has 2 kids, the other is due 12th March but today her udder was fairly full. I am a complete novice at goat midwifery, so fingers crossed.

Great the kids came through,thankfully not -15 here.


You've made your images bigger, and in the process I can now say 'OMG those kids are just adorable little bundles of fluff'.


I came here via Phelan's blog. I have 3 Goats: Persephone the Perverse ( my first) a Saanen, Demeter & Pan who were dumped by the river near me. I think Demi had kids before she was dumped as half her udder is enlarged, but she won't let me milk her, & the vet gave me a course of antibiotics which doesn't seem to have done any good. I may need advice when my girls come to kid...!
Like Rebecca, I live in rural Ireland ~ in co. Tipp, on Mother Mountain. *waves at Rebecca*

Good job!

If you visit my blog, you'll see that we've had about 45 goatie births this season so far.

Next time take those frozen, dead kids and fill a laundry sink with warm water. Submerge them and keep heads above water. Add hot water as the water cools. You might be surprised...! I've done this in the past.

We've been able to convert an extra barn into a nursery this year. It is warm and cozy.

They're adorable. My husband tells a story about how his great grandfather was born premature and they kept him alive by keeping him in the family's wood-fired bread oven for a while (also with the door open).

I'm curious why you're selling Lucy as pet-only, though. Is it because she had such a hard birth?

That was a great story of survival. I hope there are no more surprises like that in the future for you.
