Spring is Baby Goats









For several years we raised Boer Goats and spring was filled with baby goats!!  
They are more fun than kittens:)

Running and hopping and if there is anything to jump on and hop off, so much the better!!


Goats are naturally curious and playful.  So when my grandson is in the pen, they all want to meet him:)

But when it's time to eat and momma calls, they all come running!!  I was always fascinated that each baby knew their mother and each mother knew their babies.  Moms do not let other's babies eat over:)  If we had an orphan, we would have to either bottle feed or I would go and hold a mama goat for the little guy to get his meals:)

This is Freckles and she always had three little ones:)   As a rule, most baby goats are born in twos but three is about as common as a single birth.   We have had baby goats born as quadruplets. 
After foodies, mama tucks her little family in and they take a little nap in the sun:)

  21. Such cuteness with the floppy ears! Growing up all our sheep always had twins, but I was never lucky enough to see a set of triplets, let alone quadruplets. Poor Nannie, that's a special pack of rambunctious!

  23. Hi Evelyn,
    Spring is such a fun time with all the babies. The pic of your grandson reminds me when my boys were little and we had goats. It was a lot of fun.
