Goat Birth

Snowball, our birthing subject, who shows up so well in a dimly lit stall!

Early signs: she's dropped over the tail with a crooked tail, pawing to make a nest, stretching to help get babies into position in the birth canal

Feeling some contractions

The amniotic sac appears (look close)

Front feet of baby #2

Helping this very big boy enter the world!

Proud and tired mom with two big healthy babies

Two days later babies are up and around checking out the outdoors

    I’m glad to see you looking so well & happy on your very own farm. Have a successful season to you both. We had a work party at the farm this past weekend in the labyrinth rooting out blackberries & nettles. Susan made a nettle pesto for the pasta at lunch.

    Lots of love,
    JO
