I love how the wooden slats behind him make it look like he's emanating rays of light.

Welcome Baby Goat! I'm so glad all went well. You were probably on pins and needles as it was, so an easy delivery and healthy kid are a blessing indeed. Enjoy!

Yay! Look at that face.... are you happy for a little buck? since he is not, I assume, related to Artemesia, will you keep him for breeding, or make him a wether? And now you are faced with disbudding.... and banding... those two tasks seem like they might be big hurdles first time... glad it all went well

He may be too cute to eat but fortunately they grow out it.

Goooooooat! Goat goat goat look at him! Congratulations! I know you've been posting progress but somehow it still seems like magic that there was a real baby goat in there. (And I've, like, had kids, even.)
