Had these little boogers born Sunday night about 7:45. Doe was a few days overdue so we induced her Saturday. When I got to the barn, she already had the buck out cleaning him up, he was only few mins old. Doe came out about 10 mins later. Too bad we aren't keeping the buck, he has a super thick neck on him. He gets banded and off to market for July fair. Doe will become a breeder.
I guess we will keep the human kids too :)
These kids aren't too smart, having a hard time finding nipple to nurse, my dairy babies have no problems. they nurse good once latched on, but can't seem to find it.

Oh, can a mod check my profile or is it the board? I cannot use any of the editting extras, they are shadowed out, no smilies, font, color, quick links, nothing. Maybe I should log out then back on first?

20 mins old, buck standing

Not sure how much barn help they are, I do all the stinkin' work. :wallbanging:

 

Yes....the light switch worked, all options are useable!

 

Wildbill, no farm. My parents have 3 acres with a nice old barn and about 1 1/2 acres fence, perfect for a small herd of goats, we live 1/2 mile around the corner. My mom is 79 so the animals are a good excuse for me to have to stop and check on her twice a day. We only breed 2-3 does, mainly to get a couple bucks for market projects and maybe some fresh does for herd. We have 1 boer and 2 alpines, the alpines were supposed to be bred but we either screwed up on due date, they are just late, or never got pregnant. We maybe selling and going back to Nubians for my daughter, my son is now into boers for market.

Nice babies, all four of them. Kids and kids go together well, don't they? We used to milk Toggenbergs, huge market for the milk for babies who couldn't drink cows milk. I always liked the Nubians, beautiful colours, very talkative, and those lovely ears! But, like they say, you cann't milk ears, and the Toggs gave more than an ice cream pail full of milk twice a day. Olde Deere #1 used to say you could put the whole doe through a press and not get much more fluid! I sure miss my goats, but not the twice daily milkings or the midnight baby checks in Feb.!

We milked our Alpines for a bit last summer, just to get us to fair time so we would have milkers for show. After that we dried them up. I only milked once per day just to keep their bags somewhat full. There is a big market here for people wanting fresh goats milk, but gotta jump through some hoops with state to be able to sell it, too much hassle for me and too much time to milk. Sad part is, we have never drank it, but I know I grew up on it as I was allergic to cow's milk. We like our dairy, but both kids seem to be wanting the boers now, not sure why. I know these two Alpines are stinking hard headed and since they are half sisters and never been apart, they gang up on everyone else, rarely do they stay with rest of goats. I like the Nubes, but yeah, they can be a little noisey, but no worse than that retarded rooster we have that crows all day long. :wallbanging:

 

Anyway, babies are doing well, seem to finally found the proper end of udders, bellies are full and they are content. Supposed to get down in teens this weekend though, hope they do well.
