New Goat Kids Started Arriving Today!

Blanca and Flying Ears were our first two does to have their kids (twins for Blanca and a single for Flying Ears). We have 25 expectant moms, and twins are typical for Spanish Meat Goats, so there will be lots more kids to come. Spanish Meat Goats are known for their excellent mothering skills and generally trouble free deliveries; characteristics that we appreciate during kidding season. April is a lovely time of year for kidding- not too warm or cold, lots of new, green, nutritious grass, and very few flies. Our first new additions were trying out their new legs this afternoon and will probably be learning how to jump tomorrow!
