My first Goatie Babies!!!

This morning the kids went out to feed and water and found TWO GOATIE BABIES!!!I  This is Lily's first kidding and she had TWINS! (With proud papa Cloud!)  Lily was not due for another 10 days so they are premature.  We are bottle feeding them now and they are doing really good.  They are still very wobbly though.  We have two little bucklings!  They are so adorable and soft!  Lily seems to be in good spirits but she did not want much to do with them once we found them.  They were clean and dry when we found them this morning so we are assuming she did take care of them and clean them all off.  But now they are in the house and the kids are just loving it!

The pictures with them on the hay are when we first found them and they were still out in the goat house.

The colostrum from Lily was so think that they had a hard time swallowing it.  So once we watered it down some they have been able to eat about 2 oz every two hours.  They are both taking to the bottle very nicely.

Oh!  These long ears are just so stinking cute!!!
