"It ain't over till it's over"...

...the immortal words of Yogi Berra.

Yes, folks, just when I "graduated" the last class from the maternity barn and we started getting back to normal (whatever that is) I found a little orphan screaming her lungs out.  No tag.  This was two days ago.

Was someone playing a joke by dropping off goat babies in our barn?  No.  I found her mother that evening.  She'd had the baby and gone off to graze for the day.  They are now in the maternity barn and yard.

Today -- you guessed it!  Baby boy.  Baby #111.  This defies my understanding of gestation since the buck wasn't here longer than a month.  Are there more to come?  Stay tuned to this channel for the answer to that and other perplexing questions.

Happy Mother's Day!
