Our latest goat kid, born Thursday night, Feb. 24, just before my hip surgery, turned out to be spectacular! He’s every bit as big as the others and they are two or more weeks older then he. I haven’t seen him in person yet but Claire took these pictures for me. His dam is Cana (poor thing, she’s tiny!). She only has singletons and not only are they always born huge, but they always stay huge due to her abundant milk. I’ve named this guy after my surgeon, Lowry Barnes, M.D. I hope he’s not offended! (I don’t think I’ll even tell him!) Isn’t he colorful!
