Last Kid Has Arrived!

I’m a little late sharing about this, but several days after Sugar had her kids, Nutmeg kidded out. Now kidding season is over for this year. Yay! This kidding season was really short lived because we only had two kidding, which made it pretty nice. Not that I don’t like kidding season, but it’s just a relief when all the kids are here, safe and sound, up and running and doing great.

Nutmeg only had one this year, which is a first. She’s always had twins all the other years we’ve had her. This time she had a little buckling…


The day he was born, it was really cold and the snow was blowing. He got really cold and was slow getting around for a while. Since then, he’s made up for the slowness and is full of energy and spunk.

Always cautious, he made sure to stick close to mom until he could get this big world figured out…


Within a few days, he was up tasting the oats and seeing what all the hype over feeding time is about…


Since Nutmeg is the goat we milk, it means that milking season is in full swing around here again. If you’re interested in knowing what my milking routine is like, check out this post.


While the routine of having to go out and milk every morning takes a little adjustment getting used to, we’re so glad to be able to have fresh milk again.

      I’ve been wanting to switch to mini nubians because they’re smaller, eat less and would be a lot easier to handle. Especially the bucks, the one we had last year got vicious and it was dangerous for anyone to go in the pen with him around. So we’ve been looking around for some and are still debating. I’m attached to Nutmeg and would have a hard time giving her up though. 😦 Hope you are able to get them one day soon! 🙂

        Yes, we’ve been considering getting a Nigerian buck. That would probably be the easiest, that way we could still keep our Nubian does. 🙂

      Ha ha! Well, maybe they wouldn’t mind if you got one because they could always look out into your yard every day and watch all the goat cuteness and they might find it entertaining. 🙂
