White doe kid

My white Angora doe "Belle" finally had a doe. Last two times she had single buck kids. This kid was born on Sunday. When I found her she was really chilled-so chilled her legs were stiff. I brought her into the house and held her in the laundry tub, filled with really warm water, with just her head sticking out. Then I hair dried her and gave her a bottle of mom's colostrum. When I took her out her mom was waiting and was all excited to see her baby! Thank goodness she did not reject her. The baby found the milk bar on her own as well.


  1. What a beauty! That is great that the mom did not reject her beautiful baby. You did a good job.

  2. She is so white and curly. I had dairy goats for many years and still have a soft spot for them!
