Charlotte is one of Honey Dear's babies from 2009. I felt she was way too young to be bred, but the buck got out and bred all of the does in September. I sheared the baby Mamas in February so they would be nice and clean for giving birth, but it was way too cold for the does, so I put them in sweaters. Most of the youngest ones had a lot of trouble with their pregnancies, but Charlotte did so great! She had two, beautiful, tiny babies, a boy and a girl. The boy kept kneeling down his first two days of life, so I named him Daniel, since Daniel in the Bible was such a great praying man. The little girl is so beautiful, with a forehead full of curly hair and the darkest eyes I have ever seen in a goat. I named her Delilah.The Mama Charlotte is still so small, that she has to bow her legs clear out to make room for both babies to nurse. The bigger they get, the more they push her off her hind legs with their vigorous dining habits.
Angora goats rule!
Thank you, Lord, for my job, my home, and goats!
