Looks like I'll have to get Chuck a new hat

Because he is going to have to eat one of his old ones. He went to the country today to check the goats between storms (which were keeping me busy on call) and I received a text from him stating "one doe. All okay." One doe? One? I texted back asking him if he was sure another one hadn't washed away. Nope. Jabba the Hutt had one doe. She's a first timer, so I wouldn't be surprised with a single if she had been a little smaller. She is figuring out this whole mom thing, and has a good supply of milk and the doeling is getting her colostrum, so now we just have to watch her grow and assess Connie's mothering abilities and her new doe kid's own qualities and see what we've got.
