I'm not going to write much in this post. I just want to share pictures. These are Big Mama's kids. They are being bottle fed, but they did get plenty of colostrum since they were able to nurse for a couple of days off of their mom. They are doing really well. Bottle feeding has never been my favorite thing (makes goat kids really needy), but it's necessary when they are orphaned. It's exhausting, but worth it because these kids are so sweet and adorable. To make sure that they learn to be goats we banded (castrated) Peter (Amethyst's other buckling) and moved him in with them a couple of days ago (when the kids were about a week and a half). He will teach them how to eat and behave like goats. I'll get new pictures as soon as I can, but for now all I have are these from when they were about a week old. The dark one is the buckling and the blonde is the doeling.
Are they not completely and totally adorable?????
