    Went out at dusk to get everyone settled in for the night and heard some "strange" bawling from the goat corral. Our expecting boer cross doe, (who has had single boys the last couple years) is no longer pregnant!!! She had twins; a boy and a first time girl. The wife and I had been commenting the past couple days that "Butter-Cup" was really starting to bag up and that it shouldn't be much longer.....but we were both thinking another week or so.....since that is what she usually does when she starts to "show"......but she decided to surprise us. We had to go back to check the calender to find when she was bred.....turns out she was right on schedule...... :dance:
    Anyway, got the wife out of the house and we fixed up the spare pen in the barn to give them some privacy and get the kids out of the weather.....been having some nasty storms in the late afternoon.....from the size and the way they are carrying on.....I think they were probably born right after the last storm passed thru......beautiful little babies.
