Baby Goats - Star and Frosty
We've been expecting Milkshake to have babies any day now for the past week. It's hard for Samantha to be patient when she knows how much fun baby goats are, especially when she gets to bottle feed them and be their mother. Samantha's been faithful to check on Milkshake regularly to see if it's "time." She's even stayed home a few times this week when we needed to go to town so she wouldn't miss the big event. Of course she just missed seeing them born for the second year in a row. They were born early Saturday morning around 6 am. Samantha named the girl, Star, and the boy, Frosty. They are healthy and happy and cute as can be.
Since they are newborns, we must feed them every 4 hours the first day. We had a job to do in town that morning, so we put them in a box and brought them with us. It's fun to show them off because they are so adorable.
We're expecting more baby goats in a couple of weeks from our other milk goat, Cinnamon. Then bottle feeding time will be even more exciting and more wonderful than it is now.
