3/9: Put Idima up for sale
3/11: Sold Buckley and Vita (Eshki's daughter)
I had a total of 5 babies in January! I've been putting off posting about them. On January 6, Darla had 2 doelings; and on January 27, Raina had 3 kids: 2 bucklings and a doeling! I've never had any goat have 3 babies until now.
