Pippi delivers Thumper!

After a wonderful Easter Sunday we came home for a big Easter lunch.  Ham, potato casserole, green beans, corn salad, pea salad and peeps rice krispy treats.  Seriously all the yummies were ready to be eaten!

Then, Silas noticed that Pippi was in labor!  What to do, what to do.  I had a table of family and friends!?  So, we nicely ate (Silas and I on the quickly side) and then went outside to check on Pippi.  We had some family and friends follow us.  

We watched her deliver a healthy, adorable buckling!

We were shocked it was just one!  She is a great Momma and doing so well! Since it was Easter, we decided to name him Thumper.

They had quite an audience!

He has cute blue eyes, just like his Momma!

 Isn't he just so cute!!??!!

But, now we have 14 goats.  It's time to make some tough decisions for me and Silas.  Which breed do we want to keep?  What direction do we want to go with our goat plans?  Right now we have 5 different breeds of goats and lots of mouths to feed.  It's fun, but it's time to make some tough choices and Silas and I have a plan.  I'll post soon!
