Babies Everywhere!

Spring time is always fun and exciting around here.

Mid-April two of our doe goats had babies.

The children have named them Grace, Faith and Honor. We have had so much fun bottling them, watching them run around the yard and playing with them. The pictures below were taken right after they were born. We cleaned them up, cut the belly button cord and got them warm.

They play hard!

And then they sleep... ON the dog's bed - nonetheless!!

Looks so uncomfortable but when you are all "played out" - you ARE all played out.


Then there are the ducks. Oh, for cute!!

And don't forget the baby chicks. We have these that are 2 days old...
