Well Maxine finally did it!! I seriously began doubting anything was actually going to happen…While simultaneously panicking that maybe she would drop her baby..or babies while I was out of town because as we’ve seen from Minnie and Derby’s surprise arrival my goats like to deliver without me.
So anyway the DAY Finally came for us to pack our bags and head out of town. I let the goats out checked Maxine and she happily leaned in for another belly rub then resumed eating her breakfast. I walked back up to the house disappointed that she hadn’t produced at least One Baby for me before I had to leave. We loaded up the car, got the kids buckled in and as we were saying our goodbyes I heard yelling….a baby yelling.
I thought it was Derby bUT it sounded different…I panicked thinking maybe he’d got himself stuck and was choking! But as I got closer I saw him standing there just staring inside the covered shelter and that’s when I knew Maxine was having a Baby!!!
TWO BABIES IN FACT!!!!!
Two bouncing Baby Boys with adorable markings and such sweet fuzzy little bodies!
They are adjusting to nursing with a mama FULL of milk and getting a little assistance from my kick ass house sitter / cousin who is so willing and eager to bottle feed if need be! I am SO anxious to get home and snuggle them!!
NOW for those of you wanting to know who won our little Due Date Contest? ???? And THE PRIZE??!! 🙂
Not only did she guess the date but she guessed twins as well!!! And honestly who better to win this prize than the mother of three handsome bouncing boys herself! So miss Sara if you have time before you leave for your trip yourself…bring those boys of your over and meet these little babies (bc i know how much you love snuggling baby goats hehe) and YOU get to come up with their names!! ♡
