    Dot just had twins...her first freshening. My buck, Norman's first babies too! They're outstanding. A buck and a doe. Black and white spotted Alpines! They are gorgeous!

    Oh boy Ruth...way to go!! I love it when it all goes right..

    I have four that look like they could pop...and I wish they would..before the storm that is coming gets here. Everyone in the midwest watching this one? It sounds like we could get snow, winds and the whole ball of wax.

    Again..Ruth..congrats on those babies!!

    Sher, we're looking at snow toward the end of this week. :shrug:

    Now I need to come up with names for the little buggers. They'll probably name themselves within the week, but I'm always open to ideas.

    Daddy is Timshel Gen. Stormin' Norman; Mom is Timshel Five Dot Com.
    My herd name is Patriot.

    I want to go home from work and play with the babies!!!!! :Bawling:

    I left my camera at the last goat club meeting. As soon as I get it back...probably not until Saturday at the next meeting.

    Someone gave me name ideas...since it's Columbus Day.

    Patriot Columbus Day Discovery (Dizzy for short) for the buck

    Patriot Isabella of Castille (Izzy for short) for the doe

    Cool names Ruth! Izzy and Dizzy...that sounds good. My last "keepers" were a twin doe set..they are black headed boers. I named them salt and pepper, one has more white on her face than the other.

    Oh what fun...you are making me anxious Ruth. I NEVER tire of the kidding season...new life...what could be better?

    Congratulations!

    So, do these count as really late babies - or really early ones? :p

    I'm not sure. I guess just Fall babies. I like year round milk!

    Are the black white spots like moon spots, or is this the black and white that is what I call a "Holstein" goat?

    I guess they're sort of holsteinish, but they're are several small 'dots' on both kids.
