Yesterday morning, I suspected that Jeepers was going to have her babies very soon. She was being so quiet, and I could tell she was having sporadic contractions. When Danny arrived home from work, he helped me give her a pre-birth “haircut.” We timed it right! The baby monitor was on when we heard her first bleats. She seemed to have a little bit of trouble birthing her first, but she was upset about us moving her to the birthing pen and being there. She isn’t the tamest goat. But she is a great mother. She cleaned them up right away and watched us carefully. We penned them all up the milk house last night, and everyone was warm and toasty this morning.
