We let the brothers out of their stall to do some exploring while we did barn chores, but they decided they would rather do some napping

  1. Ahhhh! Twins, Is the common Molly

    Molly–I am surprised that neither the twins nor Ovaltinaweena are bothered by your camera’s flash. Is this always the case? How wise of you two to have a monitor at the kidding scene. Did you knit their sweaters? Great pictures. John

    Twins are the most common.
    After than having a single.
    Then comes triplets, which is not at all out of the ordinary. The first year we had kids we had three sets of triplets. More rare is having four kids and on occasion your can even have 5 or 6. The most we ever had in one kidding was 4 (Goldie’s last kidding).

    None of the goats ever seem to be bothered by the flash. It’s good, ’cause I am always taking photos of them.

    Yes, the video monitor was money extremely well spent. It is just a standard surveillance system I picked up at Home Depot, through I had to add a lot of extra wire.

    My mother made the sweaters. They are extremely useful and we are fortunate to have them. I have about 12 of various sizes.

    Glad to see Hemingway’s newest arrivals–we are anxiously awaiting his progeny here at Precious Cottage Farm. Val should be first, around March 20. Hope spring arrives first-it’s been a cold couple of months here too!
