Granny gave birth to a wonderful surprise today!!
COMPLETELY unexpected surprise!
When we bought Granny, the owner told us that he had put Granny and his buck together, but his buck hadn't shown any interest in her whatsoever.
We assumed she wasn't pregnant, so we sent her down to our neighbor's barn to get her pregnant.
Our neighbor's buck showed no interest in her.
Today, (five months after we bought her) we put her out on her line in our front yard.
Several hours later our younger siblings went outside to play, and came running back in screaming for Ruth to get outside because "Granny has a baby with her!!"
We, being new to having goats, did not even guess that she was pregnant!! Joel (older brother) thought she looked fat and Ruth noticed her milk bag filling out, but we thought it was her gaining weight after drying up (she was quite skinny when we bought her) and her winter coat coming in.
We were pleasantly surprised!
Here is Granny with her daughter (yet to be named. Suggestions??? =D)
