Hi Tina that was a few minutes after they were borne in the pasture. I took some pictures which you could see both of them. They are really fun to watch now they are running and jumping all over the straw bales I put in the shelter to make them a cozy house. When they were borne in the pasture I had to get the wheel barrel to get them out and in a safe place, was afraid of Buford our donkey and the Billy. Now they have their own fenced in site with a big shelter and a huge area to play and grow in. The white one is a male and the brown one is a female her name is Ginger, we call the white one junior. The Billy is a big black and white goat, it was an experience I won't forget in the pasture drying off junior when Mama had the other twin and then I figured one towel would never be enough.  The mama goat is really a good Mom of course it isn't her first time she is eight years old, she lets me pick them up and pet them now they have really got very quick and some times hard to catch them.

You are a blessed woman~I hope to wake up to the sounds of donkeys braying and goats, (well, I am not sure what sounds they make, Ha!) and a few chickens. I have my garden seedlings going, waiting for the last frost. Ready to get dirty! Thanks for sharing your dream~
