The momma is Lili. She had triplets this time and here they are! The boy is black in the back, our doeling is on the right, and the doeling that they are keeping is in the front/left. They were born close to 2 pounds each, during the Thursday snow storm, but are eating like little pigs! Of course, the heat lamp in the kidding area is an absolute must here in the Rocky Mountains!
This is our beautiful little girl, the doeling. I'm told she has blue eyes, but hard to see in picture. She and her sister (the other one in the above pic) were born a split second apart, after the boy. She has beautiful markings, and look at the little pink nose! Hubby will probably name her. The 2 choices he's wavering between: Lavender, Honeysuckle or Honey, Daisy, Iris.

This beautiful black boy with brown eyes will become a wether, and will come home with the doeling. (Because goats hate being alone so should always have at least one other animal in their "herd".) Notice the little mohawk on his little head. The Kid has decided to call this one "Hawk". Go figure!
We're very excited. As soon as we can, we'll be putting up the "barn" and fencing off the pen area. And making sure there are no holes in the fence that is already there. Of course, we have 8 weeks before we can bring them home but we'll be ready!
