Jetta started out the kidding season with one tiny little doeling first thing this morning. She looked small, like a twin. So I waited, and waited for a second baby, but she was a single birth.
I don't get many black babies, so she was quite the suprise. She's 3/4 Angora X 1/4 LaMancha. I call the crossing a Llama goat, because they look like little llama's with the fiber and short LaMancha type ears.
I think Joy is going to kid next. She is soooo big. We have never had a goat give birth to more than two kids. So it will be exciting to see how many she has.
You can tell she has dropped by her hip bones. She doesn't even have the sunk in spot in her sides, because she's so big.
Laying down. You would think she would be miserable, but she acts very happy, and comfortable.
How many kids do you think she will have?
Do I look beautiful?
Kanga grew this tuft of hair out of HIS right side of his mouth. He wasn't wanting to participate in being photographed. It looks like he has a cigar sticking out of his mouth. We think it's cute, and adds character.
We got our meat back on Saturday. The hanging weight was 777 lbs. We got all the fat, and bones too. It turned out really good. I don't think we will be shopping for beef for a while.
