It has been a long 6 weeks with out milk, but kidding season is here for us in SW Virginia! The girls are filling the bags in anticipation. There is nothing better than baby goats and when you get tired of your kids you can just sell 'em!

So sweet...the only thing I miss about goats now is that newborn kid smell and of course their antics when they are up and running. Thanks for posting pictures...takes me back...we had alpines...our sons were raised on fresh goats milk...no refrigeration just warm from the goat.
