They're here...they're here! - they've been named

Ellie's kids have finally arrived. I'm so excited. They didn't get their first drink until about 2 hours after they were born and I ended up having to milk her almost dry and then stick the nipples in their mouths. They caught on fast after that though and both got a small drink. I'll go out again in a few hours and make sure they get another drink.

There is one of each sex. We have a solid brown doeling with a small white spot on her lower side. The Buck is solid black on the body and legs and brown on his belly, a white spot on the top of his head and with a small white spot on his lower side as well. I'm headed out to check on them again and will post pics as soon as I can get them to stand still long enough to get a good one. The one's I got a few minutes ago aren't very good.

Edit: appearantly the camra isn't focusing right so I still came in with a bunch of garbage pics. Managed to find a couple decent ones though.

Second edit: they've been named Wonder and Marvel

Congrats on the goat kids! To get a Mini-Nubian you take a full sized Nubian doe and breed it to a purebred Nigerian Dwarf buck and you get a 1st generation 75%/25% Mini-Nubian. I posted the answer to this question awhile back on my blog.

How sweet!!

So far the blowing of the food hasn't become such an issue that a food fight is in order. :D
However, it might make for a fun experience! haha

VERY nice to meet you 'fellow farm girl!'

I'm working on a club where anyone can join and they would be deemed a "Na-Da Farm Chick"

keep watching for it!

Love your goats....we are in the process of looking for nubian milkers...any thoughts?
