Parker & Dexter

A few days ago Ms. Ellie delivered her kids! Meet Parker (in the front of the photo with Ishmael) and Dexter (laying down in the back of the photo below) named after the man who first built the barn which is now coming down.

This finally gives me an opportunity to try out the goat sweater I knit a while back.  It’s a tad big for a newborn goat and absolutely huge on Dexter, who is quite small, but it does seem to help keep their cores warm. I’m going to knit a few more in smaller sizes to have on hand for future newborn goats.

Parker has been doing quite well from the start. Dexter was weak and unable to stand but thanks to struggling_along jumping in I believe he’s going to make it. He’s up and about now and is getting stronger everyday. In fact we’re off to check on them right now.
