Kids of ’08

Below is our 2008 kidding schedule.
As kids are born, I will update this page with their names and add more photos to the gallery at the bottom of this page. Keep in mind that our does tend to actually kid, before, some times up to one week, before their due date, so keep checking in.

Scroll down to see photos of the new goatbabies.

If you would like to receive notice every time this page is updated, which usually means that more kids have been born, or that new goats are being offered for sale, please fill out the notification request below.

    Molly—What great planning of the kids’ arrivals. A great schedule. Do the goats know what day they are supposed to deliver ahead of time? Having only one a day. Why can’t people plan as well? John

    I would love to see you new babies ASAP. I am new to goats and I am a lot smarter now than I was 4 weeks ago becouse of your web sight. Give your husband a big kiss what a guy, my husband would not do the things you talk so highly about that he does for you and the goats. I wish I had that with my husband. God bless you both. You both do such a good jod. Love Melisa

    Congrats. Your web site is like my like bible. I am waiting any day for my newbin to give birth. Not realy sure on the due date. This will be my first birth on the farm. Alittle scared but with your pic. It kind of gives me a plane on whats to come. Thank you for your wonderful web site. God bless all of you and your family. Tamika

    Awww! Molly I just love seeing your kids! I am very happy yo say this will be my third kidding season and I am so claim! Hold in there everyone! And to the question I find the does just want them out! But your question has made me wonder!

  5. Mollie says:

    my first goat is just about to have her first baby and were all so exicted. we bought my goat from this guy and he doesnt even know when the kids due but according to your website shes showin sighns that shes due soon! :)

    Thank you for putting so much heart into your sight! I so wanted to find some down to earth guidance without all the worldly technological bondages! I’ve farmed all my life but am expecting our first goat babies in the next couple weeks and am a little nervous because I want to do all I can! The photos in your birthing album have given me some peace on what to expect in variations! Don’t EXPECT! I’ve had many home births of my own, all different- 6 children! You’d think I’d feel this to be a piece of cake! I’ve taken in more off your sight then anything else I’ve read and keep coming back. Keeping things as close to how God created them is more peaceful and therefore healthier for all involved. I wish I could visit your animals…and you too! ha ha ha!God Bless!

    My sweet goat Gretchen just had 3 kids on Feb. 24th. I don’t know what I would have done if I did not have your website to guide me. I went line by line to your instructions. Wow! Your instruction made this an easy process. Gretchen’s 2nd kid was positioned incorrectly but with your help all the kids are alive and safe. Thank you again.

  8. Molly says:

    Thank you all for your comments. I really do appreciate hearing from every one of you.
    Positive feedback really makes all the work I’ve put into my site worth it :-)
    It’s nice to hear my web site is useful to you and I wish everyone good luck with their own kidding seasons.

  9. Shannon says:

    Your kids are cute! Thank you for your website too. My childrens goat birthed two kids, and I would not have survived the whole experience had not been for your information and pics. Now the goats are the familys not just the kids……. Amazing how birth can be so bonding. We can’t wait for next year.

    The kids are beautiful. It is so exciting when the new babies finally arrive. I have 1 Pigmy buck(Sparky) that is a week old and 1 Boer buck(Brutus) that is 4 days old. They are amazing.

  11. Samantha says:

    They are so cute! I just wanna give them a big hug!!! P.S I have a doe about ready to kid, i don’t know when!!!

    Molly,
    your site has been extremly helpfull. I have so much to learn and I want to care for my little herd to the best of my ability and financial ability (house full of two legged kids and barn filling up with 4 legged kis),but with the info on this site I am learning how to avoid many problems that would need medical treatment if not taken care of early. So THANK YOU, you are an absolute jem!!!!!
    just a note: I’m having trouble pulling up many of the goat healt hand husbandry pages. Hope the problem is only temporary and will corect it’s self (as if you don’t have enough to do ) :).
    Love and Prayers for You and all Yours

    Hopefully you aren’t having issues anymore. I can’t seem to find a problem on my end. Let me know if this continues.

  15. Lisa says:

    Hi Molly,
    Well, I guess whatever the problem was it’s no longer a prob. I haven’t been having any trouble at all today.
    So…… All’s well!!!!

    I have been in market Boer Goats for awhile now and just starting into the dairy. I own a few Lamancha does, which are kidding now, and I am looking to purchase a Lamancha buckling. I was wondering if you had any tips on what to look out for. Any opinions would be helpful.
    Thanks

    I just helped my La Mancha doe deliver 3 kids. They were born about 3 hours ago. Last August she had 2 but one died several hours after birth and I’m not sure why; she died in my arms and I sobbed for hours. So now I am watching these kids’ every move. Dora (mom) is being a great mom but someone told me that the kid last year probably died of selenium deficiency. Why one and not the other? Anyway, it will be a long night watching these 3 new darlings and praying they survive. I am so nervous! But this site really helped me make it through this birth. I’m an EMT and was more nervous helping deliver goats than people!!

    I know in Idaho the soil lack in selenium. My friends had one doe have triplets and one of them had stiff bent front knees and they weren’t connected to the shoulder. Now though he is fine and you can’t even tell he had leg problems! 😉 I wish you luck with your kids. I have raised Boers and right now have my first Muchies. My first time doe had a doe and a buck and my second first time doe had two buck. Just waiting on doe three. LOL 😉

  24. hi says:

    We have some goats but yours are way better looking

  25. Nancy says:

    An update on Dora and her kids. Unfortunately, it’s not a good one. One kid died the day after she was born. A second died a week later. The third is now an orphan who is being bottle fed. She’s doing great; we named her Dottie because she has a big black dot on her left front knee and the rest of her is white. Dora died about a week and a half after kidding; she got scours and I could never get her to overcome it. We are so sad to lose Dora but she had rejected her kids and that’s when I knew that she knew she didn’t have much longer.

  34. Pat House says:

    I am so disappointed to hear your giving up the goat business. I first want to thank you for everything you have done for me(unknowling) here on your site. Every time I have had a question or a concern, or a just wanted to know something, your site was the one I always came to first. Your site has literally saved some of my kidds lives. Thank you so much for such a well put together site. So, I now have to hurry and copy it over into word so I can have it forever. Good luck to you. Your gonna miss’em!!!

    Hi Molly,
    You have helped me so much with your wed site. I konw how you feel about LaMancha goats.
    Well you were 100% wright about having a buck. I have 1 doe and 1 buck. He is not happy. If you know anybody that would give a good home to a 2 year old LaMancha Buck, I would be will to give him to them. Only a good home, he is sweet. I am in Georgetown Indiana . Thank you Melisa

  38. Beth says:

    Molly,
    Thank you so much for all the work you do, I started to use your herbal worming formulas at the beginning of the year. I have to say even in a short time I have seen much better results! I have not seen one pale eyelid or any runny poops! We just had our first nubian kids (twin Bucklings), they are 5 weeks old now. Thanks to all your work all is well, still working on getting them to take their worm formula, drenching seems the best way, the others love them in a ball!

  39. jessica says:

    Awwww I wish so badly that i had goats, but I think I’ll start out small with chickens and then move on to goats. We’ re not quite ready for goats yet, but we have PLENTY of space for them and…. maybe, hopefully, my mom will consider goats, my dad- i’m not sure what he thinks. by the way, I love what you said, these are living, breathing loving creatures and we should treat them with the love and respect they deserve. To get people to care, we just need to get them to ask their selves, ” how would you feel”
