Kid 1 and Kid 2 See the Light of Day

Exciting times here on the Farm.
The publicist new Louise the goat was going to have her kid soon - she thought it was only going to be one kid.
Louise sure did surprise her!

She thought it was going to be next week but Louise was showing signs that it might be sooner. Like growing the biggest udder the publicist has ever seen on a Nigerian dwarf goat! This should have been a clue that maybe there were going to be twins but sometimes the publicist is pretty stupid.

On Thursday night we went up to the barn as per usual around 6PM and Louise was not showing any signs of being in labor. The publicist and male person came up to check on her at 8:30PM and surprise, surprise there was a kid in the pen!

It was a cute little black and white kid.
Really, what a surprise. A black an white kid on the Farm.
The publicist went over to check on Louise and she stood up.
Under Louise was ANOTHER little goat.

It was probably a good thing they went in when they did or the second little kid might have been smothered. 
Louise, despite sitting on her second kid, is proving to be a very good nanny.

She has been barking at the male person, barking at the Farm cats and even barking at me!
She is licking those babies like crazy.
You know I would like to give them a little lick myself.
Maybe later.

They are very tiny.
You can see how small as the male person pets the first born. At least the publicist is guessing this is the first born as it was up and walking around and the brown one was under Louise and is a bit smaller.

They are both adorable as would be expected in greatgrandkids of mine.
Yes, I have admaaated it - I am a greatgrandnanny. But I am also a GREAT greatgrandnanny!

There will be more photos and movies as the kids get older.
Hopefully the publicist will get her act together and give them names soon too.
Kid 1 and Kid 2 are not good names.
Neither is trying to nurse on your brother.
They will learn.
