Buns in the Oven

The first baby goats are due in less than a week and the girls are taking their rest time pretty seriously these days. We’ve had some very nice weather this week so the grass is coming in thick and green just in time to welcome the new arrivals.

Even with Petunia gone, her family still sticks together. These are Pet’s offspring from 2015 (Sputnik), 2018 (Skeeter), and 2019 (Cupcake). Their mother is gone but not forgotten!

Skeeter looks like she’ll probably kid first. She’s due May 3rd and I’m guessing twins. I’m guessing Cupcake will be an awesome little Auntie to those babies.

Rita is due the same day as Skeeter but doesn’t look quite as ready. I’m guessing only one kid, but hopefully she’ll surprise us.

Coral and Sadie are due three weeks later on May 24th. Coral looks like she’s carrying triplets while Sadie does not look pregnant at all. I know she is because of the changes to her udder, but her belly sure isn’t giving her away! I’m guessing  three for Coral and one little tiny kidlet for Sadie.

Last of all is Tigerlily. She’s due on May 25th and I’m keeping my fingers crossed for twins this year. She has a history of very large singles. I don’t like large singles. Tigerlily is bigger this year than she’s been in the past so maybe she’ll up her game this year and have two.

Snowball is such a little princess! It will be interesting to see what she thinks of having a younger sibling or two. I wonder how Tigerlily will take it. Some mothers suddenly reject their kids from the previous year for a time while others welcome them right in.
