I Win The Bet !

I am the best goatie fortune teller! Doodah had triplets! The Boy is not disappointed to loose this bet, he had bet on twins! He now owes me a milk shake! Yep , we are high rollers around here!


 The first one is like his daddy red and white and is quiet a bit bigger than the other two...Mr.Tumnus is forming a pattern here with his kids, a gigantic redish and white buck in each batch!



The next one was this jet black little girl with a white dot on her forehead. She is the smallest and  for some reason I could not get an unblurred picture of her.




The last one was a gorgeous tri colored little buck! He is brown and white spotted with black socks!



Goodness I wish he had been a doe!



These are not the best pictures,hopefully I will get some better ones later! We got home just in time  today to hear Doodah hollering and to get her moved over to the barn and comfy..well as comfy as labor can be!

All the babies were very frisky and nursed well...mom and babies are napping now.Doodah is a great mom...she went right to taking care of the trio!

I know this is short and with not very good photos...I had to show you all the new goaties..I have been swamped this week with endless trips to town...2 hour round trip  plus the time we are there.It doesn't take many of those kind of days to get me hopelessly behind! So I am tryin' to swim up stream in a river of way behind! The good news is,besides the new goaties,that Hubby should be home next week! He has been gone longer than what we had expected this time so we be especially excited to see him! So here's to new goaties and returning Hubby's and hoping you all have a wonderful weekend!

AW.... darling and early too! What a pleasant surprise. Blurred pic are probably from excitement and exhaustion, lol.

What kind of shake you gonna get? ( this is something you might expect from somebody on a diet ;-) )

We probably won't hear a lot from you when your husband gets home. (Wink, wink)

We'll be watching for pics of the triplets, when you have the time, take care!

Oh my goodness--they are adorable!! Is that odd for a goat to have triplets?? I don't know about things like that. I LOVE that little tri-colored guy and I can't wait to hear the names you give them. :)
