I was right!

Sweet Pea delivered some time through the night! A single baby, I'm not sure if it is a doe or buck yet (I'll check later today). That's how it should go though - she's a champ and so far wins the best mommy of 2014 award. She had her baby cleaned up, she was nursing, her placenta was delivered and she was mommy talking (unique voice for her baby to recognize her, from other goats).
You can't see it very well in this photo, but it has a dark ridge on its spine. A real cutie.
I feel good that we are starting to know what we are talking about when it comes to pregnancy and birth. It should be a natural thing, but that's not always the case - sometimes they need assistance. I'll try and get a non-red toned picture later today...the red is from the heat lamp. It's still cold here...Spring...where are youuuuuuu????


  1. Oh how adorable and very exciting for you. x

  2. They are definitely cute, and it was so nice of Sweet Pea to let us sleep! I love you!

  3. Goodness your family is expanding exponentially (big word!). Well Done Sweet Pea. Hey, i just noticed Sharon up above. You are hijacking my readers. Sharon lives near me and gave me the most amazing head massage. Im looking forward to a follow up.
