Kitten rescue

video
Speckles decided to hide her kittens in the giant pecan tree one night. That was a good way to keep the dog away from them, but they were exposed to the rain and we could hear them crying up there. So Ricky made a daring kitten rescue. He also composed this short video.

Surprise! It's a Girl!




Yesterday my father came over to help us move a trailer, and he casually asked, "Where'd ya get the baby goat?"
"What baby goat!?"
Our goat had a baby!! We didn't even know she was pregnant. She must have been that way when we bought her at the auction 2 months ago. Anyway, her baby, Teenie, is the smallest and cutest goat we have ever seen. I'm sure you will agree. The little girls are so excited because they won't have to wait any longer to learn how to milk a goat. I'll let you know how that goes...
The video here is grainy because of the lack of strong light in the barn, but I think you will enjoy it anyway.
