This is NOT how I want to start my kidding season…

We lost our brown and white spotted doeling last night. It was very cold, and the kids weren’t very good at staying close to Bonney. I’m heartbroken, of course, but it does happen. At first I was afraid Bonney wasn’t caring for the kids, but she’s seemed fine with the remaining one. Time will tell. I will be keeping a very close on Bonney and her baby; we don’t want to lose any more!

Speaking of the cold… I made simple “coats” for the babies last night, but Bonney pulled them off. So I’m thinking of learning to crochet. There’s an adorable crocheted coat that Bonney wouldn’t be able to take off of her babies. Until I learn, I am going to make a coat for the doeling with buttons. I highly doubt Bonney can manage a button!I’ll post pictures of the coat as soon as it is done. One way or another, I’m going to keep that baby warm tonight!

    Would love to see a photo of the little one in the coat . I like to crochet but have never crocheted for an animal before. Sorry to hear about the loss.

      I will have to post a picture of and plans for my failed tie-on coats. I believe, after thinking it over, that I can improvise those coats to work with buttons. I hope so, since I won’t be learning how to crochet before our other goat is due to kid! 🙂
