Donna kidded last Monday. It was her first kidding and it went very well–a smooth delivery to a quick nurser.
She had a single male. Incredibly, 18 of our last 20 kids have been males. This little guy is big and healthy. The only problem so far is that Donna has misplaced him several times, sending her into a panic and us out into the pasture to find him. Before now only our goat Rhiannon had this annoying trait. As the little fellow, who Cherie calls Kirby, gets bigger the problem should resolve itself.
It was a treat for our interns to hold a newly born kid on the first day of their internships.
Kirby likes hanging out with Rowan.
We’re glad to have him around.
