One of the sure signs of Spring is the arrival of goat babies.So far this season seven new goats have been brought into the world via the ADAMAH pasture. Shemaya was the first to give birth, two Saturdays ago, to two boys. Una was next, a boy and a girl. Ilex gave birth to three kids, two boys and a girl. Angie, everyone’s favorite matriarch gave birth on the last day of Passover. It was the first goat birth I have ever witnessed and I can only begin to express my amazement at this incredible event.
Zilpah, who is almost totally off her knees these days, is currently two days past her due date.
Aitan, our holy goatherd, is super busy caring for little ones (my heart has been stolen by the little runt boy, who has to be bottle fed and is super people friendly) and moms and renovating the milking parlor in preparation for our new ADAMAH dairy. As soon as he has a second to catch his breath we’ll hear what he has to say about all of these new goats.
