Triplet Baby Goats!
Posted By Smockity Frocks On March 11, 2012 @ 5:02 pm In Country Living | 11 Comments
After we bought our first pregnant Lamancha dairy goat , we decided we had better get another one if we wanted to keep up with our 1 gallon of milk a day drinking habit.
That second goat, Pixie just delivered triplets!
and the twins.
These are Lamancha/Alpine crosses, so 2 came out with ears and 1 is earless.
Everyone was thrilled to go see the new kids and check them over from tip to toe.
Eyes – check!
Tails – check!
“All parts accounted for, Mama!”
One of the twins was cold and unresponsive when we found him, so we brought him inside to warm him up with a heating pad and bottle feed him some colostrum that we milked from the mother. He perked right up after that.
Here he is beside our toy poodle. He only weighed a little over 3 pounds!
Mama goat and her triplet kids are all doing well!
