This is the 4th time Georgia has freshened. It is also most likely her last. The birthing went well, however she ended up with gangrenous mastitis. Since that diagnosis doesn’t have anything to do with the topic of this post, I will save that story for another day.

Georgia’s dam is Willow, who is a solid cream color with random spotting and roaning. I have not seen what Georgia’s sire looks like, but the registered description states “black, frosted muzzle and ears, white on face, sides.” Georgia is black with random spotting, roaning, and frosting.

Tam has a buckskin pattern. His sire is light buckskin, while his dam is a medium buckskin.

2021 Georgia & Tam Breeding | Ridgetop Farm and Garden | nigerian dwarf goat buckskin

This year Georgia birthed two bucks and a doe. Most often if you have a black goat, the pattern of the other parent will be present. This is definitely true with these 3 cuties. All have variations of Tam’s buckskin pattern.

This is a total of 10 kids for Georgia. Six boys & four girls. We have kept one of the does, Betty.

2020 Kidding Season | Ridgetop Farm and Garden

It is such a fun, exciting, busy time of year. Our farm gained 9 does & 6 bucks this spring from 5 mamas and 3 baby daddys.

My method of assisting the births is very hands off. I watch the mamas obsessively when their due date is approaching. I like to be there for the births in case they need help. But, I will only intervene if there is a problem. I am trusting the goats to know what they’re doing.

GEORGIA

2 Does & 1 Buck

Georgia is a champ. Birthing just seems to come easy for her.

We missed the births by just minutes. But when we got there, everything looked perfect.

These three are so very friendly – which is funny because Georgia is not the most loving goat.

2020 Kidding Season | Ridgetop Farm and Garden

MOON

2 Does & 1 Buck

Moon gave birth a few days before I was expecting. So, I was surprised one morning to find 3 cuties beside her.

Last year, Moon’s first freshening, I was not too impressed with her mothering skills. This year she is much better, thankfully.

2020 Kidding Season | Ridgetop Farm and Garden
2020 Kidding Season | Ridgetop Farm and Garden

WILLOW

2 Does & 2 Bucks

Poor Willow. She gets so, so big. She handles it well, though, and is always such a good mama.

I knew Willow was getting close to giving birth. So I kept checking on her. But, it was getting late so I finally left her alone. Sure enough, two hours later she gave birth to 4 kids.

2020 Kidding Season | Ridgetop Farm and Garden
2020 Kidding Season | Ridgetop Farm and Garden

WYLDESTYLE

2 Does & 1 Buck

I watched WyldeStyle the entire time she was in active labor and after kidding. I could tell she was getting close, so I just camped in the barn with her.

Her first kid came with little concern. Things seemed to be happening as they should and baby number 1 was born. She was very attentive to the baby, licking and talking to it.

Occasionally WyldeStyle would sit and push, but then get back to caring for Baby #1. We were nearing the half an hour mark and still not another baby. I was starting to get concerned because WyldeStyle behaved as if there was another one to be born.

Eventually, Baby #2 did come. But, the sac didn’t break. The baby just layed there completely surrounded and unable to take a breath. WyldeStyle didn’t try to help it because Baby #3 was coming.

Baby #3 was born the same way – without the sac breaking.

I waited as long as I could stand it. I was hoping the sacs would break and WyldeStyle would start doing her thing. But, they didn’t. So I went in the pen and wiped the babies clear. WyldeStyle right away got to licking. And all turned out well.

This was a new experience for me. I don’t know what the outcome would have been had we not been there.

BETTY

1 Doe & 1 Buck

Betty kind of surprised me. I wasn’t sure Betty was pregnant, but about 2 months before she gave birth I decided she was. She was looking a bit rounder and had a small udder.

As her kidding date got closer, though, I was having some doubts. Her body shape wasn’t changing, her udder wasn’t getting bigger. She wasn’t looking uncomfortable. My only clue that she might be was that she was a lot more interested in us humans. She wanted attention and to be pet – which is not her typical personality.

Her kidding date came and went. No kids. So I decided she must not be having babies.

And then…

I went to the barn to check on WyldeStyle and her babies the morning after they were born and I heard the tiniest cry from the other stall. Sure enough, Betty had recently given birth to 2 kids. One was up and crying. The other was laying there in its sac, still as can be. It was alive, but barely. I quickly cleaned her a bit and gave her back to Betty. Betty was not interested. So, I took her inside, kept her warm, and fed her a bit of colostrum. I didn’t have high hopes for her. She just wasn’t improving. Within minutes, kids are up and looking for milk. She wasn’t even trying to get up. It took her a couple hours. But eventually she seemed to be perking up, so I took her back out to Betty. Betty finally welcomed her and all seemed ok. Update: We ended up keeping this amazing little fighter. We named her Clifford and one year later she is doing fabulously.

These two were the smallest kids we’ve ever had. The little girl didn’t even weigh 2 pounds and the boy weighed just at 2 pounds.

Two weeks later, I can say these two are as spry and spunky as our other goat babies. And Betty is a fabulous mama. I’m really very impressed with her. ❤

Wingman was one of the kids from the first litter born on our farm. When he was born he had the coolest fawn colored hair spattered with roaning. It has lightened up significantly as he has aged. Wingman’s sire is Crash. He had a combination pattern of Swiss marked and medium to light buckskin. Wingman’s dam is Willow, who is a solid cream color.

Willow is amazing! She had quads again.

Willow is a solid cream color with random spotting and roaning. She must be a carrier of the recessive black gene because she has birthed a number of black kids. Willow’s dam is dark gold with a belt and roaning. Her sire appears to be dark brown with random spotting.

Willow has no issues, health wise. And, she has never had issues with birthing. But, it feels right for this to be her last kidding. She births so many kids at a time, and they’re good sized. It seems like it could be a problem as she is aging. So, we’re going to quit before they’re are problems.

Two bucks and two does for Willow. I love that all 4 look different. She often has solid color babies like the white and tan ones. But, the other two are her first buckskin kids born on our farm.

Wander’s sire is Tam, who is is buckskin. Wander’s dam is Willow, who is a solid cream color with random spotting and roaning.

2020 Moon & Wander Breeding | Nigerian Dwarf Goat | Ridgetop Farm and Garden

Moon had one buck and two does. All three babies are buckskin. DM1 & DM3 are very similar. But, DM3 is much darker overall than DM1. I believe DM2 is also buckskin, she just has a lot of random white patches and moon spots covering most of the buckskin pattern.

This is a total of 5 kids for Moon. Two boys & three girls.

Science is Fun & Genetics are Fascinating!

Please keep in mind this information is primarily for me. I’m posting it publicly in case others are interested. However, I don’t claim to know all the things. This is my method for keeping records of the genetics because I find it fascinating and I’m trying to educate myself.
