Kidding Season is over...

We are done having baby goats here at Seldom Seen Acres for this year.
We ended up with the following:
Lucy - girl / boy twins. Dora and Diego.
Gareth - a single boy. Delmer.
Genie - girl / boy twins. Daisy and Donald.
Kiss - a single stillborn girl. Delivered via c-section.
Cinnamon - girl / boy twins. Diva and Diesel.
Cheyenne - twin boys. Dallas and Denver.

I feel like such a horrible blogger, I just can't seem to make time to sit down and write a post. For pictures of the babies when they first arrived go to my facebook page.

As for today being the first day of Spring? We have four inches of snow already on the ground and it's still snowing. It's 30° here. The sun does peak through for a few minutes at a time but nothing promising.... Happy Spring!!!

Kidding season has begun...

Lucy presented us with boy girl twins during my son, *K*'s, 2nd Birthday Party on February 9th. I'd been watching her for over a week because I was sure she was about to have them at any minute. But of course, she waited until I was busy and she new I wouldn't be coming to the barn for a few hours ... typical goat!
Gareth was due on the 17th but showed no signs at all of getting close to delivery, so I decided she must not have gotten bred when I thought she did and it would be a few more weeks. I went out this morning to check on Genie who is due today and I believe is getting close to delivering, to find Gareth had delivered a single boy kid.
We are naming this years babies with names that start with "D". So far we have Dora and Diego (Lucy's) and Delmer (Gareth's).
