Violet!!!

(Before It's News)

Twin doelings for Violet! Born around 8:15 and 8:45 last night. It was a classic kidding with Mama and baby girls all doing well. Here they are this morning:

Firstborn. The flash on the camera picked up her
agouti markings, but to the eye she’s solid brown.

except for a white band on her left side,

and a face like her Mama’s.

Little sister is a fuzzball in comparison.

Mostly white 

Also an agouti. Agouti is a common coloring in many animals.
It’s when the hairs of fur are banded with different colors,
usually black at the base and another color on the tips.

That makes our kid count for 2017 to be 3 bucklings and 4 doelings.

The onlookers:

Jessie and her twins were most interested in the newcomers.

Happily the weather is balmy and beautiful. Perfect for baby goats.

Next time I’ll post updated kid photos along with the names I’m trying on for fit.
