Carry On Goating

We have had some right goat shenanigans going on
 Connie who is as wide as she is long was due to kid last Friday,

 still no kids
 Her udder is fit to burst and is now touching the ground
 Helen is due to kid end of this week, she is big and cumbersome and spends her time grumbling how uncomfortable she is.
 The expectant mammas are really feeling it in this heat, to help them out I fixed up the solar powered fan in the goat house.

 Thelma's triplets are thriving and coming on great, full of energy and mischief
nap time is spent curled up together inside the old tree stump

Enid is still playing at aunty and doing a brilliant job so much so 
 
 she is now producing milk and supplementary feeds the kids
 Of course mum Thelma is still feeding them as well.
With two mums to feed them they cant do anything but thrive.
 Thelma doesn't seem to mind the arrangement and Enid is in her element with the kids.
The old tree stump which in fact is still a living tree is home to another family of triplets further up the tree these babies are also full of mischief.

  4. Oh poor Connie, SO big in all this heat! She looks like a goaty-bra would be in order. I hope she has her babies soon (3 more perhaps?!)

    Amazing video of those Squirrel babies - I know they are pests, but those look so cute.
