This morning at feeding Hayley was right there eating with the rest of the herd. I checked her backside and there was no discharge and only about 1cm dilation. That has been that way for a few days. After feeding and watering we milked Hound Dog and Blackie. Not a peep did we hear from the goats while we were milking. Afterwards I went around to give the goats their treats and Hayley was licking off her brand new baby boy. In that 10 minutes that we were milking she was about 5 feet away giving birth. She didn't moan, or make a sound. This was her first kidding and she was a pro. She is also being a excellent mom. All I got to do was finish drying off the kid and give her some warm molasses water and grain. Hayley and her Comet are doing wonderfully and he is a handsome little thing.
