Goats, gripes, and grasping for greatness
Dahlia had twins!

Achaosofkittens just called - Dahlia had twins! I'm going to have a hard time concentrating in class tonight. More news as I have it...

10pm update: They are both boys and they are both already nursing just fine. There is a big solid black and a smaller reverse badger with a partial belt. By "reverse badger," I mean a goat that is black on top, white on the bottom, and has white racing stripes down his face. The white on his tummy spreads upward on his right side in a band, which is the "partial belt."

And of course, with a big black kid and a little striped one, my first thought for names is Timon and Pumba

Next day update: Since they were born on St. Patrick's Day, I'm considering a pair of heritage names. Patrick (or Padric) and Clancy. Or Makem and Clancy. This would celebrate the Clancy brothers, specifically.

No, only four.

One year I went "all in" with eight moms and had ten babies.

4 sounds like lots from here :)
10 sounds like insanity. Adorable insanity.

Oh, yes, it was!

See below for the 2012 insanity. And FYI, "Good baby" became Madeline, and "Bad Baby" became Clover.

Wheelbarrow of cuteness, now with nametags
