The Final Baby

The final kid of the season has been born! Yesterday at chore time I was surprised by a new baby in the pen, already dried off with a belly full of milk. Petunia, the mother, has looked the same for nearly 2 months, so I truly had no idea when to expect her to kid. Since Petunia is Mom's goat, she got the honor of picking the baby's name off of Charlie's List: she chose Indus, the name of a constellation. Thank you to Charlie for coming up with such a great list of names. Now is time to  start thinking about next year's theme - Musicians?  Poets? Herbs? We'll see...

More names from The List!

Here's the newest additions to the crew. Pip had her set of triplets just 2 days ago. They are already playing King of the Mountain on the big square in their pen and are generally being cute. After looking at Charlie's Grand list of names I've decided to name the 2 boys Sirius and Polaris, the girl will be Vesta: 2 stars and a comet! Now we have only Petunia to wait for...when and what she has will just have to remain a mystery for now!

A little rain...

Needles to say, the goats and I got soaking wet on our emergency trip home from the school house pasture.
