After putting our does and bucks together in November, so they kid in the spring, the time came, and the Lord graciously granted quite the little kid herd for 2013! And so, we thought we’d introduce you to the group.
Here are our two bucks, Rocky (left) and Shatner (right):
And here are some sights and sounds of the offspring…
In this video, I introduce you around, including how we named some of them:
And I’ll try to name them in each of the pictures, from left to right.
This is Moe I think, I think Albert (there are 3 or 4 that look like him), Vinnie and Choco on the milking stand, either Shirley or Larry under it, Alice, Rosie on top of the front of the milking stand, and Mario and Stoney:
And here’s a little video Sue caught of some of them a-frolicking in the evening:
Here are Winnie I think, and Annie (our two does), Choco, Penny, not sure the two black ones in the back — maybe Finn and Becky, from top to bottom — Louie, Daphne, Velma, and Nicki, and our doe Minnie with Donny (black) and Clyde behind her:
And this is Clyde and Penny:
Marie, with Stoney and Mario:
Over to the left, Nellie with Velma and Daphne; Huey, Louie, Winnie our doe, and Dewey; Rosie in front; and our doe, Adeline, right:
Our doe Annie; Choco, our doe Pammy, and Vinnie behind her; Rosie (in black); our doe Gracie, with Penny and Nicki; Nellie again, with Daphne and Velma; Winnie again with her three; and Alice way over to the right:
Here’s a closer shot of some from the last pic:
And another close up:

And this is our doe Minnie, with Donny (left) and Clyde (right):
Thanks for taking the tour! In the end, the Lord granted 21 kids — 13 bucks and 8 does. We are very grateful to God for His graces and mercies in granting these provisions this year; for their safe deliveries (both mother and kids), especially after last year’s difficulties; and the health and safety He’s granted to them all thus far.
Soon, Lord willing, we’ll be able to get back to having goat milk, which we really look forward to!
