Minutes old baby goats. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2ni2aKCL_8)

A couple of notes:

1) I didn't chuck the baby. I set him down and he sort've toppled into the camera.

2) The camera's the webcam on my laptop.

3) The wire is now out of the pen. (I was repairing the fence last weekend -- goats are brutal on fencing -- and missed that little piece.)

4) That is the world's best dog.

It's Mardi Gras time in New Orleans. A parade is passing three blocks from my house. I can hear the bands and the crowd cheering. The baby goats beat that hands down. They're adorable. :)

That's great. There are little lambs up the street from me, and I look for them every morning when I'm out for my 'constitutional'. Love baby critters, human babies, not so much :D.

Four-footed lawn mowers... way too cute.

Do mama goats usually have twins?

Dogs are helpful like that. Whey my SIL used to foster orphaned kittens, her dog would ‘help’ by rolling them over with his nose and lick their tummies, after the kittens were bottle fed.

Yes, goats often have multiples. Oooooooooooooooooooh, I miss having goats. In a few short weeks I will again have goats and this video made me so glad. Is there anything cuter and more playful than a baby goat? Squuuuuuueeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

My uncle raises goats that look just like this (http://www.babygoatfarm.com/PaintedBabyGoat.jpg). The kids are freakin' adorable. Thanks for sharing your new babies. :D

I like the idea of 'fainting goats'. If they try to run away from you, you just clap your hands and the goat locks up like a police 'bait car'.

I love baby goats! Two of my girls gave birth on Jan 1 (singleton) and Jan 10th (twins) -- all girls. I now have 6 female and 1 male. My dad says Billy has a harem.

I had all boys this year -- I lost four does (and a buck and a wether) to a dog pack last summer. I only have two does left and was really bummed to have all bucks. The older white doe is eight or nine. I haven't decided if I want to try breeding her again. I had hoped to get a doe kid out of her and then retire her after this breeding.

I will probably keep one of the bucklings in the video as a backup buck & sell the rest, and try again for more does next winter. The two older white kids will go with me to the farmer's market next weekend, if I can shake the death plague from hell that's settled in my lungs. So it goes with livestock ...

These guys don't have much meat on them for eating. They're Nigerian goats, which are a dairy breed. Most people want them for pets or, in the case of girls if you're so lucky as to get some, for milk.

But the babies are fun anyway. :-)

Oh, Nigerians almost always have multiples. Mine generally have two or three. The white doe -- Princess -- was one of a set of quads.

Clicked on the link, but it wouldn't load. I'll try again in a bit, but I love baby goats :D

A friend of mine has one on her farm and I visit, regularly. She's adorable. I'd love to have one, or 2. Maybe, in my new place I'll be able to. 'Course, I'll have to check w/ the pups and see what they have to say about it...

You realize your sig line is really evil and I just spent a good thirty seconds trying to squish it?

I don't understand where you're coming from with that comment.

When you have a chance, please elaborate what you mean, in particular the "really evil" portion of your statement.

Oh yeah, that must be it. Thanks, Joe. I couldn't for the life of me figure out what she was talking about. I'm so used to seeing that bug that I really don't notice it anymore.
