Meanwhile, back at the ranch ...

Tatum's goats began kidding season in fine style. Three little doelings arrived Sunday afternoon, right on time for the first week of spring.

These two little doelings are twins, born to Tatum's biggest and oldest nanny, who has the endearing name, Big Mama. They are fantastically healthy and have wonderful color markings for their breed (boer). They also seem fond of their little friend Todd the Rabbit.
There is one more little doeling to show off. Her mama is a first-time mama and was learning some "parenting skills" at the scheduled photo shoot time. They were secluded together for the nanny to allow the new baby to nurse.
Thanks Sue for the photos and Lance for caring for the herd all winter. The goats still live "back in the 'hood" as Sue likes to joke while we are in the city. We are searching for a new hobby farm style property so our kids can be reunited with the herd. We certainly miss having them to entertain us, keep us busy and cause occassional frustrations in our daily lives.

Oh, my goodness! I had no idea goats could be so cute! I like Todd, too! : )
