Welcoming The New Kids

After keeping our goat herd closed for about six year now, we have been needing to add some new blood, and wanted a good dairy doe or two, but haven't had any luck finding a adult LaMancha doe in milk. So we ended up getting some LaMancha cross bottle babies from a lovely woman named Susan. We had a fun time visiting at her farm, seeing all of her goats, talking to her about guardian dogs, and of course picking out baby goats.
This is perfect time for us to raise up these little ones, because our goats won't be kidding till May. Here are some pictures of the little darlings.

It was not easy getting individual pictures as they were all fighting over my moms fingers.

Now, could you look at all those pictures and resist smiling?

They're all just lovely! How fun to be adding to your herd. And yes, I smiled - they're too cute! :)
