Raining (Goat) Kids

“Goat Baby Alert! Goat Baby Alert!” I woke up to my husband’s shouts.

Lulu's Kids

“Which one?” I asked, but he disappeared and hurried back down to the barn. Just as I barely finished dressing, he had brought two very wet, shivering kids with their umbilical cords still dragging into the house.

“It’s Lulu,” my husband said.

“Lulu?” My pregnant Sable doe hadn’t looked that pregnant. In fact, I wouldn’t have guessed that she was pregnant except her udder had filled a few days before. Two kids – two big, healthy, heavy kids – wasn’t exactly what I was expecting. Where in the heck did she hide them?



We brought the kids into another room away from the dogs, grabbed the towels, a ceramic space heater, and we both set to work on the two. The big brown kid proved to be a doeling; the white one that looked like Lulu was actually a buckling.
