New kids on the block

Well Nilla our Saanen doe kidded on 6-16-2010 with two kids. I got to use my what seems like hundreds of hours of research that I had done to help Nilla birth her kids. I like to call myself now the certified goat midwife!

Nilla’s first born was a 8lb doeling and second was a 8.4lb buckling. Mom and kids are doing great! Her motherly instincts have definitely kicked in and she is doing a great job with them. I named the doeling Hazelnut but we’ll call her Hazel. The buckling is named Marzipan, but we’ll call him Marz. Got to stick with food names for sure!!!

The below picture is Nilla and her kids only a few hours after they were born.
