Arya, Mary's 2 year-old Saanen doe, gave birth to twins this afternoon. As usual for our goats, she needed no midwifery. We missed the birth--always a bummer--and found the kids when we went outside to feed this afternoon.
This little darling, the younger of the two, wanted his first meal before his legs were fully functional!
Yep, quite the sucking reflex on the little dude.
Mary had to be fair and pick up big brother, too.
She would have preferred girls. After all, in the dairy world, girls are the bomb. Have you ever heard of a HIMD? No. It's a HERD, right? But they ARE awfully cute.
The older one is named Coyote; the younger, Wolf.
