  • Spring Goats

    On Sunday, I pulled on my overalls and muck boots to head out to do chores on a sunny, yet chilly, morning.  I usually feed the horses first while the goats line the fence waiting patiently for their breakfast. I noticed that the herd leader, Shelby, was missing from the group. She is the leader, I assume, because she’s the largest of the herd, as she is an Alpine cross dairy goat. Shelby had an approximate due date of March 22. I had a pretty good idea of her due date because it generally takes 150 days for gestation to take place in a standard-size goat. Once I realized that Shelby was missing I knew there had to be goat kids born already or she was very close. Shelby doesn’t miss a meal, ever.
