Our goat, Carmella, gave birth earlier than expected. We didn't expect her to kid until mid-March but her babies came on March 4th.

The girls came running in to tell me and by the time I got to the barn, 2 doelings had been born. Of course, they are as cute as can be and , although I was disappointed to have missed the birth, I am thrilled that the mama goat is being motherly and letting her babies nurse and the twins are healthy.

The kids (my children) are enjoying them and checking on them regularly and taking great care of the goats. Tonight it began to snow and Rebecca went out in the snow to bring the other mama goat in with the others so they'll all stay warm tonight.

I love having goats and I am so happy for 2 more girls!!
