After wondering just how big a pregnant goat could possibly get, Quatro delivered triplets on February 17. Jack’s first kids!
Well, the triplets have had a big time this first week. The official count is two boys (the black and white and one red-head) and one girl (the other red-head.) That little painted fellow was quite a surprise, and JW said it looks like we have two goats and one Holstein calf! The red-heads have spots as well, and look like they have little dark thumbprints all over their heads and ears. The little girl has a black nose that almost makes her look like a little beagle puppy. They are so all tiny, and I’ll bet the little girl isn’t more than about 4 or 5 pounds. The boys will be listed for sale, and we will determine which girls will be kept once we see how many we have this Spring. (more…)
