April became a Mother in March!

Not the most original name I know...but April kidded on Monday, March 29th. Twin bucklings and one looks to be just like his Daddy- Gus. Very nice Alpine buckling who is shown resting on a block of wood making his Momma fret since he was on the wrong side of the fence.

The one behind him looks just like a Togg with all the markings perfectly like his Momma. Now while I had two bucks in the same pen with her one being full Togg and one Alpine, does anyone know if it is even possible within a set of twins to have two Daddys?? Tried to look it up at Fiasco Farms but didn't find any info! Curious!


  1. I don't have bucks around my girls unless I'm supervising, and only one buck, not two.

    This is what Teena Bagwell says:
    Does can bcome pregnant on two separate dates. In 2008, I bred Esterlina, she came in heat again shortly after and I bred her to the same buck. When she kidded, she had a set of term twins and a set of premature twins.

  2. That is so cute. Nothing like a baby animal to make you go awwwwww.

  3. Congratulations! I have never had it happen to me but I have read the same thing Joanna posted. I think that is really fascinating if that is what happened with you goat! In human land it would be talk show worthy!

  4. Awww, cute! How did he get on the other side of the fence? Such sweet babies.

  5. Could be because it can happen with dogs. It has even been known to happen with humans...
