    Y'all know I am not a goat person in general, but those pictures of the twins look like they were born knowing how to "set up" for the show ring. Really like the way they "square up" on their legs at such a young age. I am very impressed.

    Thanks all!

    @farmerjan I'm pretty excited about these kids! Some just "have it" from the moment they are born. Gonna be fun watching them grow!



    @OneFineAcre Thank you, I am very thankful! So many rough kidding seasons for so many I know. It is heartbreaking.
    Though, it is odd. We have not had a single "nose & toes" birth. :ep All the kids have been born with their front legs back, tucked under, or completely twisted overtop the kid's head. Several kids were born backwards and one kid had his head tucked underneath his body. Not terrible births, but a little odd. :idunno

    For the first time since we bought our place I appreciate the rock ledge that our farm lies on. I won't sink more than 6 inches no matter how sloppy it gets since that is when the tractor hits rock.

    Poor Ruth she looks like a miniature version of my uncomfortable Nubian Gigi who is 23 in across the top

    Oh, @OneFineAcre , I thought I would fall off the chair when I saw that picture. Thank you for making my evening. That is just so funny.... SAD but funny.
