Goat Baby - Goldie had a boy

This morning's rounds gave me a guilty but all's-well-that-ends-well surprise. My guilt comes from sloth. It was pouring rain yesterday, and I was really tired when we got home, so I lamed out and did not do a barn check last night. So, of course, true to Murphy's Law, Goldie had her kid yesterday without help and without notice.

Proud mama and loud baby boy look like they are doing find this morning. The buckling has a nice round full tummy and a warm mouth; Goldie's milk is flowing at least from the one teat I grabbed; Everyone else is giving them room enough to bond and stay warm. I took pictures, which will hopefully be posted tonight.

I also totally forgot that we have a issue with the barn light, and plugged it in. The loud SNAP and the huge sparks coming off of the line imply that I at least blew a fuse, and may have fused the cord. oops.
