Tales from the Goat Birthing Pen!
Glady who is a registered Boer doe kidded on 12/2/20. I had been making soap most of the morning and went out to check on all the pregnant goats. I knew we had a few girls that were getting close to kidding. As I stepped onto the front porch I heard a maaaa that I didn’t recognize I took off running in that direction. As I approached the boer pasture I saw a little traditional colored baby goat standing beside Glady. Glady was licking and cleaning her. She is an experienced goat Mom and knows exactly what do. I grabbed my birthing kit and went into the pasture with them.
Glady laid down and pushed for a minute and got back up. The first baby was already nursing. After a few more minutes she laid down and pushed again while the first baby screamed at her. Lol After doing this a few times she had a beautiful dark brown baby goat. This one was a little slower to get up.
Baby Goat Gender Reveal: She had registered, Boer, twin girls! They are beautiful. They have a nice build to them and they are stocky. I am excited to see them grow out!
