From My Front Porch Swing
Every year in late winter, our goats kid, sometimes delivering a single baby, while other times four kids have emerged. Like a good midwife, I order certain supplements that provide different vitamins and pack up a kit, including thread, scissors, iodine, and a little cape to help keep the kid warm. John and I haul out the “kid box” he built and check to see that the heat lamp works. Then we wait. And wait until our does show signs that they will soon give birth.
