|Lini with her bucklings Conner (purple coat) and Jack.|
After January's snow our weather turned mild and with just enough rain to get things growing. Then came March. We've had a few nice days but also snow, hail, sleet, heavy winds, and icy temperatures. Looking on the bright side, it has meant all my knitting was not in vain. The only trouble is, the kids have almost outgrown their baby goat coats!
|Beau at the mineral feeder. I keep a cinder block there
so the kids can reach the minerals as well as the adults.
|Conner. Those “airplane” ears are a Kinder trademark.|
|Windy. She's managed to wiggle her way out of three coats!|
|Lini's triplets: Lady (front), Jack & Conner (ears)|
|Violet and Sky|
|Sky, Lady, and Jack|
|Beau and Sky|
|Beau and Windy|
Other ways to stay warm:
|Sleeping pile in the sun.|
|Cuddle up with your Maa (Windy and Violet).|
At least they still fit, which is good because some of them are being separated at night so that I can milk their mothers in the morning. But I can also see where I'll need to make pattern adjustments in future coats.
