Nursery Updates at Gullringstorp
Hilda continues to become a better goat mommy. She has bonded well with her babies and there is the constant sound of goat chatter in their box. What a great change. I will give it a couple more days before I take the fence down.
Frida and her babies are having short field trips :
Babies first steps out of their box August 11, 2011
Time for fun
Frida is thinking of visiting Hilda
Frida says" hej" (Hi in Swedish) to Hilda
Babies had to hurry to follow mommy as she ran back to the box doorway
To be outside the box or in the box, what a big decision
Time to try going outside in the baby yard
Frida and her bravest baby girl decide if it's alright to go outside
The babies step out as Frida looks toward the other goats in the enclosure
Exploring the door stop
How neat, GRASS!!!
What a little sweetie!
Today August 15, Frida and her babies spent some time outside. Not just a visit, but a whole hour in the baby yard:
Frida got a bowl of fresh strawberry plants from our garden, a container of chopped veggies, hay and straw. They also got a cool fresh bowl of water.
Frida tends to her babies even when outside
Babies having fun
Frida enjoys her strawberry greens
Frida keeps an eye on those babies even while eating
This little girl is so brave with her piece of straw, she can be on her own for a few minutes
Enjoying a bit of fresh air and sunshine
Frida still looking out to the other goats while the babies try some hay and straw

Soon Hilda’s babies will be able to explore the stable and next outside in the baby yard. Be sure to check back to see the updates from our Maternity Ward at Gullringstorp. Pumpkin is our last doe left to deliver.
