Meet the Baby Goats of Spring 2021!

Kidding season is probably my favourite part of raising goats! It’s rewarding, challenging, and so much fun to see all the babies. It started a bit earlier than I had planned this year, with Josephine dropping twins on February 25. And then it was fast and furious! Within 9 days 11 does kidded with 22 baby goats. It slowed after that, with only 2 does left.

We have wholeheartedly enjoyed the babies, spending hours with them. The enjoyment that comes from watching and playing with baby goats is unsurpassed! (which is why other farms offer goat yoga with baby goats 😉 ) Plus – the kids all become super friendly. You don’t have to bottle-feed goats in order to have friendly goats.

Enjoy the pictures!

Meet the baby goats – Nigerian x Kiko


The Nigerian x Kiko kids are always my favourite kids. They are the perfect combination of Kikos and Nigerians. Sweet and spunky. The perfect size. Not too shy and not obnoxious. I think this cross makes a great homestead goat – the best of both breeds wrapped in a nice, medium-sized package!

While I am glad that this year’s kidding season was stuffed into such a short time, it is sad that it’s over already. Now it’s time to enjoy the kids while they are here. I am looking forward to May though – I have two Nigerian does and my cow due then.

Enjoy 🙂
