Goat twins again!

This afternoon, I heard one of our goats making sounds like I had never heard her make before.  But I knew what it was!  I yelled to my kids "Quick!  Pippi is in labor!"  We all rushed to watch Tabby's goat, Pippi, give birth. 

It was really quite amazing!  She had twin boys.  Tabby named them "George" and "Fred."  I'll share more about them when I have time, but for now, here are some pictures:

    1. Yep! It's actually very common in goats. So glad quadruplets are not real common!
