Our daughter had a nice surprise out in the pasture yesterday.
One of our goats gave birth to a very cute little mixed nubian alpine doeling, which we weren’t expecting. The boys found the baby and thought it belonged to Mally, the goat who we have been anxiously awaiting to give birth. They ran inside to announce that Mally had her baby! We were all excited and jumped up from the table to go see!
We soon discovered that the baby wasn’t Mally’s and was in fact from one of our other goats — a first time momma.
