Mummy Goat gives birth to two beautiful boys

Well that was a surprise! We did wonder whether Mummy Goat was pregnant or just fat! She was behaving different to normal yesterday 18th and so I put her in a strawed stable to be on the safe side. At 2.15pm I phoned Martin and asked him to check on her and he phoned back and told me she was in labour. I was an hours drive away and it seemed endless.
When I arrived Mummy was in trouble she was pushing and there was nothing to be seen so we phoned the vet. She talked me through what I had to do and so thinking of what I had seen on the James Herriot series I gritted my teeth and put my hand in. The baby was well and truly stuck but I managed to move it so that on the next contraction it finally came out amazingly alive still. A beautiful black and white boy. Within minutes another little brown, black and white boy followed.
The were soon on their feet before Mummy Goat who was exhausted by the ordeal.
We have named the black and white one Frasier and the brown one Tucker.
Mummy soon recovered and is proud of her two beautiful boys.
We were very lucky that they all survived and are doing really well
