Aggie's Boys

Agnes, aka Aggie Baggy, did very well in her first kidding, except for the timing. The farmer has posted a schedule of acceptable kidding times which is quite lenient. Any time between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. is fine. Aggie apparently did not read this because she didn't have her twin sons until 1:30 a.m. this morning.

And of course being bucks and being part Nubian, they did not quite get going strong until about 2:30.

So that is clearly an infraction, and I would recommend withholding cookies from Aggie for several days so that the next time she will know better. I will eat them so they do not go to waste. Just a suggestion.

Dear Belle,
Yay! I think this makes me an 'auntie' or maybe an 'auntie -once-removed' or SOME kind of relative!
By the way...India? You are becoming global! You go!

Yes, you are an aunty, Marigold, congratulations. Aggie is your three-quarter sister. She is your father's daughter and your half-sister's daughter and your mother's granddaughter. So she's your sister and your niece. And probably your daughter and your cousin and your father-in-law too, if we had a chart to figure it out with. And she looks just like you. Well almost.

I had the goatmother look on the website for a picture of Aggie but we did not see one. If she looks like me she MUST be cute. Could you send the goatmother a picture or post one? Thank you! :)
