Minor math error... Mona's baby boy is on the ground!

The GCF kidding season has begun!

I'm not sure if it's a math error, or if Mona is just at the minus side of "plus or minus five days." I'll figure it out tomorrow. Regardless, Mona has a solid black bouncing baby boy.

ETA (the next day): It's not a math error. I calculated March 2nd as the first possible day, then proceeded to add five days to that date on the idea that none of the goats would cycle into heat the first day of breeding season. I've been shown differently! (10/4/2009 plus 150 days equals 3/2/2010.) The calculator I use is pretty nifty.

ETA 2: My first bet was wrong. I bet mixed twins for Mona and one solid black male for Dahlia. Mona had a solid black male. Maybe Dahlia...?

Mona's baby boy was born sometime on March 2nd. He was dry and fed by the time I got home. Click on the photo if you want to see a bigger version of it.
