Newborns on the Farm Today!

Theo and Jed a Goat each!
An exciting day for the farm with 3 newborns! Our lovely long haired goat gave birth overnight to healthy twin boys! A real treat for our guests on the feed run this morning! My children all missed the excitement having gone to bed too late last night. Still when the news filtered back they were straight out there to see the action!
Well done Mummy!

Theo and one of the twins
Everyone wanted a hold and Mum waited patiently at the door eager to come back into nurse her boys. Goats can make very indifferent mothers so we are delighted at her protectiveness towards the pair! Just need help now with 2 lovely kid goat names..... suggestions most welcome on the comments area below

A Lovely Surprise to discover a new duckling too! Animals being born on our farm are like buses in London...all or none!
Hatched today, hoping for a brother or sister soon!


Wondering back home I spotted Farmer Nick making excellent progress on the new Wallaby fencing! I do hope it is finished soon as I am keen to embark on the great Wallaby Capture http://coombemill.blogspot.com/2011/07/on-farm-wallabies-free-to-good-home.html

All in a day on the farm, do hope you can come and join us on holiday soon, don't worry digging fence posts not included!
