Surprise.....it's twins!

I heard a goat in distress yesterday, not surprising since the spring kids are always getting into trouble in one way or another.  This sound was a little different, though.

I hobbled outside to the pen (I broke my foot on a toy, just call me Burgermeister Meisterburger) to find Marlee cleaning off a little buckling.

I pulled her out of the pen into my hay/milking area and urged my daughter to close the gate, but she was having trouble.  I told her to leave it and I moved to lock it. Neither of us noticing the baby lying at our feet until about 5 minutes later when I saw something move out of the corner of my eye!!!  Oops, we were both freaking out that we may have stepped on it. 

Luckily, she's fine and moving great.  She is about 1/3 the size of her brother.
