    Got weights on the kids and some photos.
    Sarabi(2/22/19) 17.3lbs
    Tito (4/3/19) 15.7lbs
    Evangeline 4/3/19) 12lbs
    Nala (2/04/19) 11lbs. She grows so slow. She is nice and spunky(also loves to cuddle) looks healthy body feels like other kids (not skinny) going to be shaving her on the 17th) so excited to see her clipped down as I think I will really be able to see her

    Really excited to see all the kids grow up/out. I think Eva (Evangeline)has the nicest GA of them (as of now at least I know they can and often do change as they get older) received_291482355069957~2.jpeg received_422404358549125~2.jpeg Evangaline I thought she would forever be skiddish. Cami's kids are always so standoffish (surprising because I was there when she kidded both times and handled kids daily) last year when the kids hit 5weeks old they suddenly became friendly this year it was when they were a month old lol. received_446680535902057~2.jpeg received_856544681363356~2.jpeg Nala super sweet doeling that has her mother's personality :weee super sweet and easy to teach! Loving her brisket (as of now)

    They also look so great! If I shaved my goats they would be black! The cream colored ones have three different colors. Cream outside, then brown, then black closer to the skin. Peanut is doing great, although she turned into a kid again. Drinks from her mom every night and she is over 1 year old. So weird. I think her kids being so small and dying had something to do with her sickness around 2 months before giving birth. But everyone is doing great now. The little one I am bottle feeding does not seem to be growing. The twin boys are 5 weeks old, she is 8 weeks old and they are almost twice her size.

    Lol about peanut I guess she will take what she can definitely possible about the kids and sickness. Is the bottle baby gaining weight ok?
    I have a doeling (Nala who I brought back to the farm after her mom was sold) who was born 2/4/19 and my twins born 4/3/19 are bigger than she is, she is just from slower maturing lines.

    Some not so great pics of my new goats! IMG_20190516_164550.jpg this doeling still needs a name, my brother has claimed and name her sister lol IMG_20190516_164344.jpg this is pheobe sister to above doeling IMG_20190515_145704.jpg yearling FF "freesia"

    That first one is so pretty. I haven't weighed her in a while. I will try to tomorrow. How much did you give for them? One of my oldest doelings goes to get new home tomorrow.
