My mini Nubian had triplets last night. I just sold two goats so she had to push me back in numbers again. It keeps happening, I sell two and get two plus. Since she was the last one pregnant maybe now I can reduce my number a bit.
I had checked her earlier in the day and she had opened a bit but nothing going on goo-wise so I checked again later still nothing, come out an hour later and triplets! Two bucklings and a doeling and they are too cute. The one buckling must have been a bit squished and wants to splay his legs backward. I have been massaging them and he is improving but I think I will get some BoSe from the vet just to be safe.

The doeling:

I think this little guy is adorable the picture does not do him justice:

The one my daughter says has "evil" looking ears:

Ahhh......and people wonder why we love goats. I get the oddest looks when I tell people I raise goats. There are lots of people with sheep and cows in the valley, very few goats, and I'm the only one with Angoras. I can't tell you how many times they have been mistaken for sheep.
