Last Goatling for the Year

Each night, Tommy has been closing Megan into the birthing stall. In the morning, I milk the other two does before letting her out. She likes to peek over the stall wall and ask for some grain. Pregnancy and lactation (making milk) are a big drain on a body, so I give her a small amount to get her used to it again.

As we were getting ready to head out for the afternoon, the children started yelling to spread the good news: Megan has a kid! This is the last of our three does, and it was nice if them to spread out the births a bit, and even better that we could be home to check on all of them right away after the births.

Mark is adorable, with his dam's floppy ears, and lots of color from his sire.
