It's a Goat Post!

This is Hoof Print Hill Sassafras. She is bred to Flat Rock Lil' Texas. She is due really soon. Like maybe tomorrow? Maybe Thursday?
I love her color and I am hoping her babies are just as flashy as she is. She is a real pistol and her favorite past-time in the barn is pulling wool out of the sheep.
Perhaps she is practicing for the milking portion of the goat job. Her udder has really come in this week. She is a first time mom so I am a nervous wreck about this. I am hoping she does a wonderful job like Patty is doing with her babies and that there are no pregnancy issues.

I was trying to move this tote out of the barn today to make more room but the goats kept insisting it was a toy to play on. I am thinking she is going to have twins.......keeping fingers crossed for twin does of course:)

Have I ever posted a picture of my baby LaManchas? LOL
Okay, I'll be honest, he was taking a potty break but he looked so perfect in his little stand and he was not jumping around like a lil' silly so I snapped the picture.
And of course my Miss Verna!! Next week they have a date at the vet to be dehorned.......ouch but it has to be done. Dehorning is one thing I am not ready to learn how to do. I do all my own shots but certain things I am not yet there with.
Hopefully my next post will be some Nigerian Dwarf babies:)

It can be very nerve wracking waiting especially for those first timers. Hope you have a set of doe twins tomorrow.

I'm not looking forward to kidding next year (well I am, but I know I will be a nervous wreck)! It is stressful enough having a baby.

Sassafras is beautiful and looks ready to go any minute! I hope it's as successful as Stuffin's birth of Luna, and I hope you get twin does!
