Just kidding!

Last night it happened, and this time we were ready. Angel was tied up and doing penance in another pasture. Amy had all her supplies in a bucket. On Saturday I built a pen in the barn that turned out to be a perfect birthing pen. We had our good friends and goat experts available on the telephone for consultation. The whole family gathered in the barn to watch the birth of two beautiful baby goats.

I’m immensely proud of my daughter Amy, who just turned 11. She did everything with confidence, enthusiasm, grace and intelligence. Other girls might have shrieked “ick!” or “gross!” and shied away from the earthy task, but Amy – who takes after her mother – dived right in and took care of business like a pro! Here are some photos:
