A First at Harlow Hills Farm

We raise Toggenburg and LaMancha dairy goats so kids in the spring are expected.  As a breed Toggenburgs are at the small end of the dairy goat spectrum and usually have 2 or maybe 3 kids at a time but on Sunday March 17th Emma blessed us with 4 healthy active Boer cross kids!  Their weights ranged from 6 1/2 lbs to 10 1/2 lbs for a total of 31 3/4 lbs of baby.  The birth was textbook perfect too they all presented normally and one at a time.  What a moma Emma is!
