Sunday Sunshine & Little Miss Maybelle

Isabella kidded today.

This afternoon about 4. Happy and relieved all went so very smoothly.
Meet Sunday Sunshine, the first to be born. A little doeling, she has a bit of her daddy's Boer coloring on her head and her mama's LaMancha gopher ears.

And this is Little Miss Maybelle. Just a few minutes later while Isabella was still cleaning Sunday Sunshine, she contracts twice and out comes another precious little doeling. Maybelle has her daddy's long ears and is solid white like her mama. She came out ready to nurse and going for milk before the cord was even cut. With a full belly she is down for a nap.
Isabella chose the hay room to kid in this afternoon. I have been attempting to slowly remove the remains of the winter hay and get it down to bare floor. Looks like I have a reason to procrastinate in doing one of my not so favorite jobs.

I saw that tiny little rump and knew you had a beautiful dairy doeling there. I was right. Wonderful girls. :)

Two doelings! Good Job, Isabella!!
I must admit, I'm a sucker for those long, floppy ears...

They are so precious! Congratulations Isabella. Just curious - why the Boer crossing?
