Trixe’s sleeping triplets


018We waited till the middle of March to have our baby goats (kids) so it would be a little bit warmer . . . I think it was warmer in February when we had our lambs.  As I am posting this we are in the middle of a big snow storm.  Eight inches on the ground and more to come.  I will take some pics a little later and post.  We had five of the goats give birth within a 24 hour period.  Some were born wet and cold and had to be coaxed to live.  I used a hairdryer to get them warm and dry.  I am pleased to annonce that, knock on wood, everyone has survived and is thriving.  Here are some pictures of the newbies!
