Twin doelings for Violet! Born around 8:15 and 8:45 last night. It was a classic kidding with Mama and baby girls all doing well. Here they are this morning:
|Firstborn. The flash on the camera picked up her |
agouti markings, but to the eye she's solid brown.
|except for a white band on her left side,|
|and a face like her Mama's.|
|Little sister is a fuzzball in comparison.|
|Also an agouti. Agouti is a common coloring in many animals.|
It's when the hairs of fur are banded with different colors,
usually black at the base and another color on the tips.
That makes our kid count for 2017 to be 3 bucklings and 4 doelings.
|Jessie and her twins were most interested in the newcomers.|
Happily the weather is balmy and beautiful. Perfect for baby goats.
Next time I'll post updated kid photos along with the names I'm trying on for fit.
