A Christmas Eve Surprise.

As a family of six people we shepherded the goats into a new paddock this afternoon. On a 35 degree celsius day I assure you that these pesky goats still have all the energy of a kid, haha, pun intended! We truly needed more people to help. Only four adults escaped us, but that is ok, they remain in a large paddock with the three sheep.
We wondered why Houdini the goat would not budge from her spot near the water hole. When hubby got to Houdini what did he find? I huge baby boy kid.. and I mean huge! Born over night. How exciting. The girls are yet to name him, I think they either thought of "Karma" or "Jesus". Who knows how the girls think? Not me.
What an exciting Christmas Eve gift. Onto new adventures...
Oh, and Hillbilly Momma, you are right, those goats need hurricane proof fencing! Haha
