Mosaic Monday and Baby Goats

 mosaic monday

Time to run on over to Mary’s Little Red House and check out the list of mosaics for today.

This mosaic shows some of the Dec 2009 babies.

feb 2010 baby goats_AutoCollage_9_Images

These are the February 18th babies except for the small light tan and white in the lower left hand corner..this little girl was born the 19th. and 2 more not shown were born the 20th.

Yesterday, I was there when the last 2 were born and they came so fast, the Nannie was having a hard time cleaning them up, so the last one still had the sack over his face and was breathing thru his mouth.  I got to act as a mother and pull the sack off him. He is a big boy and because of this size, had trouble standing at first.  I did what I could to get him up….they need to get up as soon as possible.  The little girl born first, just got right up after a couple of tries and started eating. 

I never realize what a great feeling it is to watch new life come into the world and then see them struggle to stand and eat.

A true miracle of God!

In the first chapter of the Bible, God made mankind responsible for His animals (Genesis 1-28). All animals are God's animals (Psalm 50:10) and we are answerable to God for our treatment, care and protection of them.

Happy Mosaic Monday.

I always loved when our puppy litters were born. We owned the moms and I loved being there to help them, and take care of them as they took care of their babies. True miracles, and were allowed to share their lives. God is good. Thank you for sharing the photos, my friend.

We've never even had puppies (we always have our dogs spayed). I can't imagine being there and seeing their first breath. I love the brown one with the with stripe in the middle.

There are some things I miss about the farm and after going back home and chasing the rooster in the sleet and snow recently there are some things I can do with out :)
Spring time is so amazing when all the babies start arriving.
Enjoy the moment .
Blessings to you .

There is no way possible all that could happen WITHOUT a provider. Someone with a plan, and purpose.
I have a super SOFT spot for goats. We can't have them here, and I miss them terribly (especially when I have to mow the yard:)

Wonderful post Barbara.

Thanks for coming by.

Hooray, the baby goats. How absolutely darling. I love your birth story and the best thing they were healthy. What a variety of colors. I love the brownish ones.

My sister is thinking of getting a 'small' goat for her grandson to raise for 4-H. They have very little space to keep it in. Do they require lots of room or can they be contained in a small area? I am curious.

Love this post Barbara.
Hugs, Jeanne
