Kidding Has Commenced!

(Before It's News)

Yesterday morning Jessie was acting a little strange. She was standing off by herself, not paying attention to anything around her. It was five days before her due date, so I figured I'd better finish get the kidding stall ready.

Sure enough, at about 11:18 she started to push. Five minutes later a little buckling was born.

Thirty minutes later she had a little girl.

Within the half hour they could find their way to a meal.

At about an hour old they were dried off.

Settling down after an exciting day of being born.

It's always a relief when things go so well.

This morning …

There's another goat out there!

The little doe has been harder to get good pictures of; partly because the kidding stall is so small, and partly because she's so dark with no markings; it makes it hard to see her features.  And the flash reflects in a way that I'm not entirely pleased with. I find the best photos are taken at goat level from a distance with the zoom; the proportions are more accurate. Getting an unobstructed non-blurry pose is another challenge!

There's not another color hair on her anywhere.

Her coat is soft as velvet!

The “red eye” flash effect in baby goats is
blue. She doesn't really have blue eyes!

Even though it's difficult to photograph I love her color.

My next due date is February 18, although Kinders are often early. Hopefully it will be enough time for Jessie's little ones to be steady on their feet and ready for any kind of action.
