Helter Skelter

baby goats are sharing digs with the hens for now

Our first babies born to the farm! Mathilda gave birth to twins bucks, Helter and Skelter, early yesterday morning. Will found them when he went out to do his chores frisking about like precious, perfect little adult goats. I can hardly believe it. I'm a grandmother!

We are all smitten with Helter and Skelter. Birth is nothing less than amazing, and these little dudes are utterly adorable.

Matthilda is doing fine and is a wonderful mother. (I have a bruise on my forehead to prove it) We bring her "special" apple cores and carrot peels, because as Willy says, "That's how you say congratulations to a goat."


  1. OHMYGOODNESS So in love. I'm coming now to cuddle them.

  2. so cute! the goats, and their names!

  3. So so so cute!! And the photos of your house belong in the photo dictionary for the definition of 'cozy'.

  4. I love them! They look like little stuffed teddies :)
