Easter Surprises......


A beautiful sunrise greeted us this morning as we made our way to the barn for chores. I was thinking as I was gathering my milking equipment that this would be the first year in quite some time that we would not have Easter babies of some kind. Oh well, I really don't mind if the goats and sheep wait until the weather is warmer before babies start to arrive.
That was until I discovered these two little bundles tucked away in mound of hay all warm and snug. One of our pygora goats, Lace, gave birth to them before dawn this morning. On the left is Tylerfarm's Hawk. On the right, Tylerfarm's Lark. Such a gift on this Easter morning........spring has officially arrived and it is my absolute favorite time of year. :0)
6:40 p.m. I Discovered another set of twin goats during evening chores. Two little bucklings, Tylerfarm's Raven and Tylerfarm's Falcon. Both dark chocolate with caramel points. Their sire is a caramel colored angora. The dam is white. I'm very surprised they are so dark in color but pleased!

I don't think I ever "get used" to having babies. Everyone simply a miracle. One little guy had a rattle going in one lung last night late but I checked him this morning and seems he is going to be fine. They love to be snuggled at this point and I take full advantage of it. :-)

What sweet babies - I just found your blog on Northview. I don't knit very often, but I'm still interested in wool, yarn, spinning etc. I look forward to reading about your farm.
