New kids on the block

Christie finally decided it was time to have her babies today, with a storm approaching and winds rattling the shed ... but it was all pretty much over by then. I will say she has fooled many by her size in late pregnancy - against numerous more or less educated guesses, she kidded today on day 153 of gestation with beautiful healthy TWINS.
While much contracting and positioning preceeded the big day, the delivery went smoothly with both kids presented correctly - the only obstacle being the large size of the Copper kids' heads. Quickly followed by the world's largest placenta (I think, lol), the kidding was uneventful and mom and kids are doing great.
So, let me introduce Christie's twins - a blond buck and brown doeling with splash and some spots, though they are hard to see in the photos. Not the best shots, I much dislike first day shots of anything goat related - the kids are wobbly and hunched up, usually messy from either poop or milk, does are passing afterbirth and everything is less than glorious the very first day ... but I have folks waiting to see photos and I did not want to disappoint them. More glam shots coming up soon, especially if the weather continues to look like spring outside :)

Really nice. Love the deep jaw on the buckling. The shot of Nadja with the kid looking up at her is beautiful. L

Thank you :) Lee, I was thinking the same - buck is wide throughout, a male at a first glance, I knew before I even looked.

Wow these baby goats are looking so adorable that I would love to hold them in my arms for the rest of my life. We should be having more idea about getting to know more about these types of things in life.

Aku tersenyum sambil mengayunkan langkah. Angin dingin yang menerpa, membuat tulang-tulang di sekujur tubuhku bergemeretak. Kumasukkan kedua telapak tangan ke dalam saku jaket, mencoba memerangi rasa dingin yang terasa begitu menyiksa.link 9 agen astm a283 c agen pipa boiler agen plat abrex 400 agen plat asme516 grade70 agen plat astm a285 c agen plat astm516 70 agen plat boiler agen plat hardox agen plat hb 400 agen plat high strenght agen plat high tensile sm490 yb agen plat high tensile sm490ya agen plat kapal agen plat stainless ss304 agen plat stainless ss310 agen plat stainless ss316 agen plat sumihard agen round bar besi aisi 440s45c agen round bar scm440 agen steel rail agen steel sheet pile distributor astm a283 c distributor pipa boiler distributor plat abrex 400 distributor plat asme516 grade70 distributor plat astm a285 c distributor plat astm516 70 distributor plat boiler distributor plat hb 400 distributor plat high strenght distributor plat high tensile sm490 yb distributor plat high tensile sm490ya distributor plat kapal distributor plat stainless ss304 distributor plat stainless ss310 distributor plat stainless ss316 distributor plat sumihard distributor round bar besi aisi 440s45c distributor round bar scm440 distributor steel rail distributor steel sheet pile jual astm a283 c jual baja h beam jual pipa boiler jual plat abrex 400 jual plat asme516 grade70 jual plat astm a285 c jual plat astm516 70 jual plat boiler jual plat hardox jual plat hb 400 jual plat high strenght jual plat high tensile sm490 yb jual plat high tensile sm490ya jual plat kapal jual plat stainless ss304 jual plat stainless ss310 jual plat stainless ss316 jual plat sumihard jual round bar besi aisi 440s45c jual round bar scm440 jual steel rail jual steel sheet pile pabrik astm a283 c pabrik pipa boiler pabrik plat abrex 400 pabrik plat asme516 grade70 pabrik plat astm516 70 pabrik plat boiler pabrik plat hb 400 pabrik plat high tensile sm490 yb pabrik plat high tensile sm490ya pabrik plat kapal pabrik plat stainless ss304 pabrik plat stainless ss310 pabrik round bar besi aisi 440s45c pabrik round bar scm440 pabrik steel rail pabrik steel sheet pile pusat astm a283 c pusat pipa boiler pusat plat abrex 400 pusat plat asme516 grade70 pusat plat astm a285 c pusat plat astm516 70 pusat plat boiler pusat plat hardox pusat plat hb 400 pusat plat high strenght pusat plat high tensile sm490 yb pusat plat high tensile sm490ya pusat plat kapal pusat plat stainless ss304 pusat plat stainless ss310 pusat plat stainless ss316 pusat plat sumihard pusat round bar besi aisi 440s45c pusat round bar scm440 pusat steel rail pusat steel sheet pile stockis plat hardox stockist plat astm a285 c stockist plat high strenght stockist plat stainless ss316 stockist plat sumihard supplier plat hardox plat stainless ss201 plat sphc po plat putih spcc sd plat hitam ss400 plat hitam sphc plat corten plat astm a36 plat alumunium plat abrex 500 plat abrex 450 plain bar pipa sch80 pipa sch40 pipa sch160 pipa sch120 pipa sch10 pipa medium galvanis perforated plate grating size galvanis expanded metal deformed bar besi wiremesh besi unp besi cnp besi baja wfbeam baja h beam
