BABIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So Mercy Popped...
And boy are they doozies!!
Boy is the plain one and weighed 10lbs.
 Girl is spotted and weighed 8lbs

As you can see in this pic Mercy is a little bit freaked out..
She kept butting the babies away so we decided to bottle feed them.
She is still young so hopefully next year her mothering abilities will kick in..

Here is Kyla holding them in the baby pen.
 We have a total of 13 bottle babies now.
We have worked out a deal with a friend 
that has a dairy to take her boys to raise for meat..
And so far she has had a buck year with very few girls!

Bottle Rack Kyle built for me being tried out today.. 
They are still a little short for it but they will grow...

A new girl on the block..
 This is Gracie.... She is a gorgeous girl...

And Kara has brought home her a new goat Named Maddie!
Maddie and Gracie are half sisters by their sire.
We cant wait to see how they grow out!
So Mercy decided to kick off the kidding season.. But now we have 6 more to go.. They are all tucking tails and crossing legs... We are ready to see what they have hiding in their bellies! :) Its better than Christmas!
