Miss Chief and Maxine kidded

I have been so busy this week it has taken a couple of days to post this up.

Miss Chief and Maxine both kidded on Thuesday the 6th.

Maxine gave birth to a boy (Maxwell House) and girl (Nite Spot) at 11am and Miss Chief had one big girl (Lo Key) at 10 pm. Everyone is doing great.

The most amazing thing is that Miss Chief’s mother, Trouble, assisted in Miss Chief’s delivery by comforting her daughter and helped clean the baby off. We had retired Trouble from kidding last year (at age 10) after the birth of Miss Chief. She has continues to nurse her daughter and Miss Chief even took a couple sucks from her mom when she, herself was in labor. Now Trouble, has started coming back into milk and I am milking her. We have not seen her nurse her granddaughter, but she love her and watches out for her. It’s wonderful to see such a close three generation family.

    Such adorable babies! I can’t believe no one commented! I especially love the expression you captured on little Maxwell House. :)

    We had our second and third goat babies (Selene and Lucky) last month and are waiting on 4, 5, and 6 all due in August. I believe Storm’s little one is due with the rest, but she was bred when we brought her home and the owners were not sure of the date. She is trying to mess with my head, though, by staring at the wall constantly and bleating very softly. She is still thinner than some I know won’t kid for another few months, but that probably doesn’t mean anything. She’s a pygmy and I heard they generally have single births the first time around.

    Time will tell and it’s not like I’m planning or wanting to be anywhere but here. Good luck with those little ones. Minutes old and I can see they are full of fun already. :)
