GOAT BABY! - Alys kidded first

True to babies never allowing predictability, Alys kidded first. She produced a dark brown baby boy with a lighter-colored head. Alys has accepted him and is trying to lick him dry (and it's reasonably warm out at 40 degrees) so I only toweled him off to "damp" rather than took him away for a blow dry and style. He's on his feet, is not quite dry, and has not figured out nursing yet. We'll keep an eye on him, and if we have to put her up on the shearing stand and plug him in, we will. Also, for those of you keeping score on color genetics Loki is the father, so this is the correct color. Yay!
