I'm late posting about it, but last week both Ida and Nessarose kidded. Ida kidded first (on May 20) with a big healthy doe kid (top picture). The next day, Nessarose kidded with twin doe kids! Three for three! All of the girls are doing really well, and are so cute to watch as they run and play.
I will be selling Nessarose and her twin girls in the next couple of days. A very nice local couple are getting into the dairy goat business, and I'm thrilled the girls will be going to such a good home. I'm excited they wanted to buy all three girls, too, so they don't have to be split up. They were able to come over in time to see Nessa's second kid being born, and they came back this evening for a visit and to help me disbud the girls.
I'll just be milking Ida this year, so it'll be nice to have a little break with just the 1 in milk. It'll be plenty for soap making and cheese making, still.
