 They say in Idaho if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes and it will change.

So here is the weekend at the picture on the top of the blog, and here is later in the week on the left.

It was so nice and warm I decided it might be time to start combing the cashmere out of our three goats.  This is Smoky.  He's all black until his cashmere or undercoat starts to grow.  Then he's nearly white.  After I get all the cashmere combed off, he will be black again.

Our friends have a larger herd that we do and they had / have several does ready to deliver.  She called me the day before so I stopped by to see their newest additions to their herd.  These little babies are so cute.   Its nice weather but still a little cool for these little ones who are still just a bit wet from being born so she is holding and rubbing this one with a dry towel.  Who can resist?

There were two born the first day, a boy and a girl.  The second birthing happened right before I got over there and the doe had four!  Rather unusual.  Two or three is the normal and these little ones, three girls and a boy, are fairly little.  I bet their momma is happy that's over!

They have several more to go, maybe later this week.  These are the wonderful friends we got  Comfort and 50/50 from last year.  Awwww.
