Cocoa, from Little Red
Danica, from Little Red
Jimmy Johnson, from Patches
Tinker Bell, from Patches
Cinderella Left Behind, from Patches. Adopted by Boots.
James Dinger, from Boots
Jasmine, from Boots
Joey Logano, from Holly and grandson of Big White.
Holly, Big White's 2 year old daughter, had this billy today. She had two last year, but they were born dead because of the iodine deficiency problem. He is a good sized kid, but not the right color. Still, he is a nice kid. She had him in the old shop. I don't think we will put him in the goat pen. He should be fine where he is.
Here is the seven this afternoon. Boots is much calmer than Patches. Left Behind was nursing this Mama today and she seems to accept it. I think it sucked her before her kids did yesterday. They are a pile.
Nervous Nanny is off all by herself and Boots has all the kids.

We have a dark nanny and a white billy. And, the little Cinderella left behind has been sneaking in and getting some colostrum milk. See the pouring down rain? If it was not for our good goat barn, she would have been way down in the field somewhere in that rain. Anyway,this makes 5 nannies out of 7 kids. That is 70% nannies.
They are bigger than patches kids.
Here Patches two white nannies are nursing Patches, Jimmy Johnson is taking it easy in the foreground, and the new ones starting to nurse.
The dark nanny is Jasmine and the white billy is James Dinger, named for A. J. Allmendinger, a Nascar driver we had never heard of. I found his name on the net. I asked Robert what to name the new billy. He said are we keeping him? No. He said, call him Goodbye Amigo.

The Trumper comes up with a new low, I think, Oh I wish Patsy was here to tell us about this.
Someone said the repubs, as Pat called them, are now the party of Dumb and Dumber.
This weekend I watched a special on Loretta Lynn on PBS. I thought I have never read her Coal Miner's Daughter book. When I went to the Big Library in the Sky, they had an out of order sign on the door. Tonight, it is working again, and I have downloaded that book. I think the story of her childhood should be interesting.
The new babies are doing fine, still locked in Jail. No new additions yet, though.

The roof is on the goat barn and the back is 3/4 done. George is going to work on the east end this week, if we get any non-rain days.
The girl and Jimmy.
It has been a good day. Brother came over and looked at my non working oven again. He is going to order parts this week. He thinks he can fix it, and if not, the part does not cost that much.
Tomorrow back to work.
In the goat pen, and all getting milk. The brown boy is Jimmy Johnson, the girl on the left is Tinker Belle, girl on the left is Cinderella.
Cinderella, so named because Mama is not claiming her. However, Mama can't count, so she gets to eat anyway.
We also have Boots locked in the pen as she is due any day now.
