Nothing like newborn kids…

May 29, 2009

There is nothing like newborn kids to show you how much the older kids have grown in two months time.  All four of the babies born in March are now in the big goat pasture and Millie and her twins have the maternity paddock to themselves.   So far the older kids have shown only a mild interest in their new half siblings.

Millie continues to be a great momma, and is very attentive.   At least for now it appears she will be an easy milker, but the proof will be in what happens once she is actually up on the milk stand in a couple of weeks.    While she is definitely a one finger milker (which I’m used to) the flow has been very fast,  and she has stood still while in the pasture.   In fact Bekah even snuck over and tried milking her and Millie mostly tolerated it.

We also settled on names for these twins.  The doe is going to be called “Rita” which means pearl in Spanish.   And the buck will be called Rochester – Rocky for short.
