Kids and more kids

3 Goats have kidded, 3 days in a row. It was quite a holiday weekend. Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Molly, Betsy & Sophia did a great job and didn't seem to mind the crowd that gathered to witness the births. What a learning opportunity for young and old. They seem to have taken a few days off, but we have 4 more to go in this round and then Owari at the end of the month.

Names: Space is the theme and suggestions have been rolling in. Thanks for all of the ideas. With more goats and pregnant sows in the mix, we will need plenty.

Meteor & Mir (Molly's twin girls)
Meteor is the dark brown doeling on the left; Mir is the oatmeal colored one

Bootes & Betelgeuse (Betsy's twins - girl & boy)

Bootes, a constellation also known as the Oxherd, is on the left with his black boots and Betelgeuse is on the right in front of Betsy, their doe.

Spock - Sophia's boy.
