One month kids

We have two does yet to kid, and they don’t seem to be in any hurry about it. Meanwhile it’s been a little more than a month since the kids started arriving and they continue to be a lot of fun.

Motherly love: letting your kid climb on your back so he can scratch his nose on your horn.

It’s a nice time of year.

    Dixie Rose wonders why I am truly laughing out loud, when I haven’t even had my coffee. The only thing better than photos of the kids are photos of the kids with their mamas. And what is it with goats and climbing? That’s the best of the lot. Well, except for all the others.

    Bill, I’m glad you are having a good Fall kid count. Looks like brown is the main goat color since the changing of the Billy. I think it really makes them look more cuddly. Yeah, I’m just a push over for any cute new life that romps around on the homestead. At what age do they leave White Flint Farm for their new home?

    It’s been raining here for the last three days. Today there’s a light covering of snow that won’t really cause any go to work issues. The streets are clear and without ice. The temps are such that I expect before the day is over the snow will be gone. Fall is really coming to an end here and Winter is set to take over. Seed catalogs are arriving now and for the next six weeks browsing and ordering seeds will commense. Before long (February 1st), I’ll be down in the bowels of the house, where the seed starting station is, planting seeds to begin their journey to harvest. New life comes in many ways. Even in my basement, new life can begin. Granted it’s not as cute and cuddly as goats but still it’s a place where regeneration happens. New life whether it’s being formed in the belly of a goat or in the husk of a seed is truly an amazing thing to me. It’s one of the reasons I like to garden. I’m always thrilled to see new life come out of a seed that looks dead when planted.

    Have a great kid picture taking day.

      A kid with an entirely brown face was unusual before Abraham arrived here. Now brown faces is the norm and we have two kids that are almost entirely brown!

      We had another very warm day today. It’s hard to believe it’s the middle of December! But I know there’s cold weather to come. In the meantime we’re enjoying these balmly temps while we still can. And I’m already going through the seed catalogs, circling new things to try. As you say, the time for starting seeds isn’t that far away.

    So touching to see how they love each other. And how tolerant the parents are! Lessons for humans?

      While the grown ups are eating the kids bound around playing with each other. Then when the adults rest and chew their cuds, the little ones cuddle up with them. Very cute.

    Very cute pictures. Amazing to see autumn is still in full swing there. We have a good couple of inches of snow now, although it might disappear later in the week, until then we have enjoyed a glorious golden and diamond sparkly day. I bet you are will prefer not to see the same, while ever the veg patch is still providing food for your table.

      It’s been unseasonably warm here this fall (almost winter). Today was another very warm day. I think we’ve had record highs 4 or 5 days in a row. Yesterday’s high was 72 and we may have hit that again today. It feels great outside and the gardens and pastures are loving it, but we do need do have some real winter weather eventually. I’m sure it’s coming.

  8. The one time we had baby kids, I was the one in the rocking chair in the barn holding them on my lap. LOL There is nothing cuter. 🙂
