Surprise!

Nothing can snap me out of a blogging dry spell like some new baby goaties! Yep,Doodah had triplets again! This time there wasn't a red one like their daddy Mr.Tumnus, they are all pretty much  variances of their momma...






Ole Doodah surprised me, I miscalculated her due date and thought I had at least a week or a little more. I got to the goat pen just in time for the second ones arrival and by the time I ran to the house to holler for The Boy and grab a towel she had had the third one!



They were all strong and up on their feet in what  seemed like just a few minutes!
Two boys and one girl same as last time...sure was hoping for more girls this time around but the boys are mighty cute!


The Boy thinks this one below looks like a little  burro  and is begging to keep him! I told him he won't look like a donkey when he is big he will look like a goat and besides, Butter Bean is all the wether we need around here because, let me tell you, that goat is  a diva! We often call Mr.Bean the Elton John of the goat world,lol!



Lucky for us, with this freaky weather, we have our new Laughing Duck farm custom made goat coats! My good friend Texan made these for us and she can make  one for your kids  too! Just pop on over to her place and check them out!


Being triplets,the little girl is just a tad small so I had to take her coat up a notch with a clothes pin! She won't need it in a day or so, these little goaties grow so fast ya know!



I though I would post a couple of videos so all you goat lovers who don't have a goat or two or twenty of your own could see the new mom and her babies...

And here is on of little Burro baby talking, in all his  little new born goatie goat cuteness!

Oh my gosh--I so want a goat and baby goats. These are the cutest little babies. I am with the kids--that little grey on is precious. Loved both the videos. What a special event.

AW, they are so cute! They look so nice in their little goat coats too! Can't believe she had three of them and still looks a little heavy! Good Girl, Doodah! Looks like you are a great Mommy too!

I'm glad to hear goats grow quickly, the little girl seemed to be having trouble navigating the straw.

Congratulations on the new additions! :)

Congratulations Doo Dah and Mr. Tumnus! They are beautiful babies! I agree with The Boy! That burro baby is very nice and maybe Butter Bean would like a friend? hee hee hee
