Treasure!!

We had another perfect kidding today! Skeeter went into labor around 2:00, which was the nicest part of the day, and she popped those kids out in textbook form. The only help Phil and I had to give was to cheer her on! She kidded two healthy, strong, and beautifully marked girls! Sticking with the treasure theme, we’ve named them Ruby and Diamond.

Ruby came first with a very large rush of water, and once she was dry she weighed in at exactly 8 lbs. She’s a lovely two-tone chamoisee like her dad, Sonic.

Diamond came just moments later with barely a push from mama, and she weighed 7.5 lbs. Although her front is mostly white right now, Diamond will be colored a lot like her mom when she grows up.

What a sweet little kiss!

  1. Oh my goodness!!! They are absolutely beautiful! I am hoping for at least one super sweet little doe to name after my dear friend Joy who has been supervising a covid ICU unit in Brighton. She has seen so much death over the last year and it has been very hard on her. She loves our goats, excited to name one of our kids after her. 🙂
