Sorry I haven’t been good about posting as many things lately. I’ve been completely consumed with reading Eragon. And loving it.
Here are a few pictures of Zelda and Cedric: (Sorry they’re blurry)
Gloria, their mama, had them all on her own. They came out to check and see if any of the goats were in labor only to find that Gloria had TWO babies in her stall with her! This is normal coming from that line of goats. Her mother, Naomi, would wait until everyone was gone to have her babies. With one birth, Naomi waited until everyone was gone and then had TRIPLETS! Gloria is a bit less extreme and does deign for mere humans to watch as she gives birth but do NOT mess with her when she is giving birth.
Anyway, some of the other second-time mamas are starting to gain weight. We also suspect that some of the teenagers (babies born at the beginning of this year) are bred as well. We’ll see in the spring! 7 births down, 18 more to go. Oh my.
