Our first goat kid of the year - Desdemona. She was born sometime early afternoon. Spark went out about 12:30 to check the mom and she was all alone. At 2:20 when he checked again this little one was in the pen with her. Sad that we missed the birth, but happy she is here with no problems. When we first saw her she was standing but still wet. She is still quite wet in this picture. To dry her quickly we blow dryed her hair. The temps here are suppose to be -16 tonight so she will spend the next few days living in the house. Every few hours we take her out to the barn to nurse from the mom Millie. She settled right in and watched some t.v. with Spark while warming up in front of the space heater.
