We have babies!
Count them: One, two, and look closely – number three is under Trixie’s belly. That was the surprise that was waiting for me when I checked on Trixie during last week’s snow storm. Triplets! Trixie had three totally charming little girls – small, medium and large. Their names quickly changed to Felicity, Prudence and Patience.
They were born on Wednesday, March 7th during the afternoon. When I stepped out of the barn, I heard voices I didn’t recognize and knew Trixie’s babies had arrived. I spent a delightful evening helping Trixie to dry them off and keeping them warm. Outside our snug goat house the snow was falling closing us into a private world of bliss.
I have been indulging this past week in spending many hours sitting with baby goats on my lap. I alternate between being a hot water bottle for them to sleep on and a mountain to climb. They delight in trying to climb over my outstretched legs. I know it won’t be long before they are agile, sure-footed little beings. Now they fall and tumble over my legs, always determined to get up and try again. They are born to learn and that’s what they are doing – fast.
Get ready for cute pictures.
The babies weren’t the only ones who were cute! Elyan wanted his cuddle time, too!
So that’s one announcement. We have triplets in the barn. So much fun!
Here’s the other announcement: The Equiosity podcast is almost ready to launch. It’s so like waiting for the baby goats. You know it’s coming. Any day now I’ll be able to say: it’s ready! I don’t know which is more exciting, the baby goats or a new podcast! Both are great fun. I’m enjoying the babies. I hope you enjoy the podcast just as much.
