Baby Goats!

On Tuesday, I was able to see the birth of a baby goat, and just missed the birth of his two older siblings. Friends of ours have a farm with chickens, guineas, goats, and bees. One of their goats gave birth to 2 does (Hannah and Heidi) last week, and another had 3 (1 doe, 2 bucks) on Tuesday. Their names are Gracie (I named her! :D), Gilligan, and Gideon. On Wednesday, I helped bottle-feed the three youngest ones, because their mother is making a fuss about feeding them herself. :( She is getting better about it, though.

I have some pictures of them to share! :D Beneath each photo are some links to more pictures of them. :)
