Spring is starting to arrive, despite the recent snow (at least it melts)!
Joanie had this little one yesterday. A beautiful black doe with little white spots. So cute.
We warmed her up with some towels and a blowdryer, then watched what mom would do. Mom was pretty good about licking her all over, responding to her bleats with a mom call, and even nudging her towards the udder.
Of course, did we see her nurse yesterday? No. We saw her frantically looking for a nipple, and bleat. We even spent about an hour in the pen with them, showing her the nipple, feeding her colostrum, and getting frustrated.
Nate and I both slept bad last night, hoping we'd wake up to a living baby goat. We did! And...she was nursing.
What a cutie. I wish I was home now to watch.
