Monday's Babies

Flower had her babies while we were at work today.
Finally, one that didn't wait for supervision!

All of our other goats are mostly of the Boer breed.
Flower is mostly not.
We don't know exactly what the rest of her heritage is, but it is different.
She has her own way of doing things.

This year she had two babies.

One is brown and one is white. How did she do that?
I couldn't get a decent picture of the brown one.

The white one seems to show more of her "not Boer" traits.
Short ears and the all white part being the biggest signs.
We haven't seen the either of one up close yet.
Their half sister from last year, Clover, is growing out very nicely down the road.
So I figure these two will be nice and healthy too.
Flower is a very good momma goat/ 
She has her kids tucked up in the driest warmest place of everyone. 
The other babies will probably crawl up in there too, but she won't like it.
Someday she might let us see if the kids are girls or boys.
