Streak, the cutest little goat in McCalla.
Streak was born on the night of February 1 without any help and without any complications. Annabelle and Streak, aka Lil Goat, are doing well.
I have been getting up all throughout the night with that silly goat for a month and the night I did not go out there she had her! I guess she was tired of me and when she got her chance she took it.
You can't even imagine our surprise when Mark when out to take care of the animals and there was a baby goat out there. Annabelle had cleaned him up and was already very protective of him. She will let us hold him, but won't even let the cats get near.
I have to tell you I was a little disappointed that he was a male because we will have to get rid of him. But it was encouraging that Annabelle birthed so easy and is such a good mother. She is making lots of milk and in a few days we will start milking her which blows my mind.
I had to set Streak up to nurse the first time, but then they both got the hang of it and it is the sweetest thing to see. Little Streak's tiny little tail just wags like crazy when nursing.
