Our Kalahari Goat farm is overrun with cuteness this month as one mother after another delivers adorable baby goats.
We’ve had three sets of twins and one single birth, and each one is unique and precious.
I love how the twins snuggle together, finding sunny spots to curl up against the winter chill. And it’s been chilly. Just 40 minutes south of us they had SNOW!! Amazing. We didn’t know how our Kalahari Red kids would do in the cold, but so far, they’re thriving.
Their faces are so sweet and tiny, their coats amazingly soft in varying shades of rich reddish brown.
The older ones are already learning to climb and jump, looking hilariously awkward as they trot along with their mothers before randomly leaping in the air, limps flailing.
My favorite thing is watching our Maremma, Apollo, undertake his baby-sitting duties. He’s such a good protector for the littles. He sits with them while they nap, licks them clean, and chases off any older ones who look like they might have bullying on the mind.
It’s such a beautiful and happy time of year on the farm. These baby goats put smiles on our faces all day long.
What’s putting a smile on your face this week? xo
