We had two new arrivals at the farm when one our female goat Lottie delivered a male and female kid in quick succession. Mum did a good job at bonding with her newborns and it wasn’t long before both were on their feet and allowed to suckle. The labour created a great deal of interest among students and staff which did not seem to phase mum at all.
The goats were named Frank and Lisa. They are currently stable bound until they have have been signed off by the vet, when we hope they will be able to enjoy outside adventures in the warm weather.
