There are kids on the farm! So far, 4 baby goats have been born and this is the latest one born this afternoon. It is a little girl, born to a little white girl. The father was silver grey. Obviously the genes of one or both have the agouti pattern. This little baby was a single, but the mother is so tiny herself, she does not look as though she could have a baby. The kid is a girl and is already playing with the other 3 kids. Goats are so cute and so much fun to watch when they are little. Notice the pupil of the little goat? They are rectangular in shape, unlike most other species. The babies are born with erupted teeth too. Ouch! I guess the mamma goat is prepared for that. Welcome to the Fat Ewe Farm, little lady!
