We received a nice “surprise” this morning when going out to feed the animals to find that Trixie had given birth overnight. I put “surprise” in quotes because we’ve been expecting her drop for some time now. It was good to find that both kids — one is male, the other is female — were up on their feet and looking a little surprised to be in the world. We spent some time with them this morning, making sure they were nursing and that Trixie was doing well, too, and doing a little post-birth cleanup in the stall. We left after the kids settled down into a corner for a nap. They had a busy morning!
