All of our pregnant does have given birth. In total, there are 20 babies, 3 of whom need to be bottle-fed. You met Laurel and Hardi last month, … meet Spot, the youngest in a litter of triplets!
Here is a picture of the little ones drinking their milk.
For a week now the goats have been in the pastures. In the first field, there are moms with their babies, teens, Angora Goats and our faithful lama.
They have access to part of the barn at all times for shelter if they want it.
In the second field, there are adult angora goats.
Here are some photos of Laurel, Hardi, Spot and Eclair (our little angora goats we bottle fed last year)
Here are 2 videos of moms and their little ones who enjoy running everywhere and being outside!

So that was May on the farm.
We’ll be posting soon, and of course will be back next month to share more. Until then, …
Happy Father’s Day to all the Fabulous Dads out there!!!!
