She's Got Legs

One of our Boer does Annie finally decided to kid the other day. Annie is one of Trouble's daughters, you can see the family resemblance. I did not have a firm due date on her so I was trying to keep a pretty close eye on her. She had this very pretty 11 lb Boer doeling about 2pm.

The kid sure is a tall, long legged thing, with cute little flips to the bottom of her ears. I think she must have been a model in a past life. She had a surprisingly easy time learning to stand on those long legs and it was not any time until she was hopping around the pen. It will be fun to see how this one grows!

Strike a pose

"See mom, my legs are long but they are strong!"

Oh no! Just born and stalked by the paparazzi already!

Cute! We are waiting to hear back from a lady that's giving away her herd. It's a mixed bunch and 3 are pregnant. Hope we hear something soon!

She looks and sounds like an amazing kid, Jennifer.

I am behind in blog reading. I hope your kidding season is going well.

Adorable, just adorable. Momma should be so proud.
I wish we had the room for more goats. I would love to have a few females and babies around.
