The goat popped



I traded a couple of weaner pigs for 3 goats about a year ago, and have been waiting and waiting to have kids; they arrived today. There's the proud nanny goat. They're inside one of my calf domes, bedded on 2' of fresh wood chips. The wood chips, when they're fresh, will start to compost, so provide a nice warm bedding for the babies.

I don't know exactly how old they are at this point. Maybe an hour?
