Ok, it has nothing to do with National Craft Month, but I just had to share.

Yesterday, the very first day of spring, my mom's dairy goat, Emily, gave birth to two sweet little babies:

Baby Goat!

We all went in to check on Emily in the midst of celebrating my little brother's 11th birthday. We had no idea that she had just given birth, until we saw sweet little brown kid standing there shivering:

Next to him was laying his little white brother, still, uh, shall we say, freshly born?
In the pen

Within 30 minutes they were both trying out their new legs, mumbling to their mama and searching for their first meal.

Milking!

    Adorable! Did you know she was going to have twins or was it surprise?

    Her first birth was twins, so we were pretty certain. French Alpines usually twin and sometimes triple!

    Thanks!

    This makes me miss the goats we used to have years ago. I wonder which lived with man first, goats or dogs.
