Meet the mini-Dahli's!
We got home late from church and I was supposed to take a sabbath... because, you know, not taking one is my worst sin. But instead I was using a power-washer on the kitchen. I was gonna repent later.
At some point in the afternoon I tromped out to give some stuff to the chickens but it was way too hot to be out there. Like real hot. Like Africa hot. Tarzan couldn't take this kind of hot. So I leisurely called out to the goats, "Hey are you dead yet?" Not hearing a response I figured they were fine. I went back inside to the air conditioning.
Much later I went out to do evening chores and guess what I found? I thought Dahli was due next week but these little cuties made an early appearance. For heavens sakes.
From now on I'm gonna call Dahli "Sneaky Pete" - she had absolutely no signs of impending labor yesterday. In the morning she shoved her face in her food dish like every day and I thought that I'd work on getting her set up in the turkey house today...after I checked her due dates.
So there you have it. Two perfect doelings. They were up and walking around like they owned the place. No one was more surprised than me.
I'll have some better pictures later one but for now please welcome the newest little money makers to the farm! Now I just needs some awesome "D" names..... Dacia, Dani, Danica, Darla, Desdemona, Drusilla....
Happy Monday everyone! Anybody else got some surprise goatlings?
