Hilda and Her Sons, Phillip and Winston at Gullringstorp


Hilda has become a real good mother during this her second delivery here at Gullringstorp. With her previous babies, she had a difficult time bonding and tending to them.We reached out to other who had many more years experience with goats and learned that it was up to us to help her with the bonding process. My husband put up a fence that limited the space for Hilda and her two babies. She still had some trouble so we just made the space even smaller. It nay have looked cruel to have her in such a tiny space, but it worked. She was able to get the scent of new babies, which was all she needed. Hilda fed her babies and licked them and tended to them like no there.

Now Hilda has two new babies, two sons. There was no need for a fence  or a smaller space for her to do what she needed to do. She knew and she acted right from the very beginning. Hilda is there to give those babies what they need, before they even know they need it!

    Oh look at the goats. This reminds me of when I was a little girl.
