The goat kids are starting to play and do funny antics, such as jump on their mothers and flip sideways as they jump off. The boys are very noticeable because they already are much more the show offs than the girls. Four kids were born between yesterday and today, a pair of boys and a brother and sister, all different with different markings. That is one of the nice things about miniature goats - you never quite know what will turn up. There are two more mothers due in the next two or three days and then the last of the pregnant goats will deliver weeks after that. She did not take with the first breeding and was exposed to an Angora goat later, so most likely is going to have an Angora/Alpine cross. These Angora cross goats are popular for their fibre, which is long and quite spinnable. It will be interesting to see what the chocolate box brings forth. Welcome to the Fat Ewe little goaties!
