After weeks of waiting...following my goats around peering at their nether regions, going out in the middle of the night to check them...hell, even ASKING them every morning "Any of you girls gonna kid today"...the reply was always "N-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-h"...Gabby had her kids today!
The first one slid out easily, the second one required my assistance, he was so big!
Both boys, unfortunately. But both cute as can be!
Pictures...some birthing grossness--if you are not used to it--plenty of baby goat adorableness!

|Here he comes!|
|Mama cleaning her new baby|
|A few last licks to get him clean...|
|Trying out those new legs|
|Look, Mama! I can walk!|
|#2 starting out|
|Mama, pay attention to me!|
|Mama still working at #2|
|#1 still getting Mama's attention|
|Mama multi-tasking...labor and cleaning first baby.|
|Now get out of the way, mama's busy!|
|#2 working his way out|
|THERE he is!|
|Mama Gabby cleans up #2|
|A few pics didn't make it onto here as they were out of focus, or I was blocking the camera, as I had to assist and pull #2. He was a big boy! We named #1 Garrett (Garry) and #2 Gerald (Gerry). Both are sweetly asleep with their Mama now.|
