Surprise in Tara’s Goat Pen

My friend Tara Derr Webb grew up with our sons.

Last fall, she and her husband Leighton moved to Accord, NY, to a rural house surrounded by lots of land.

Tara has two goats, two dogs, and a cat.  How she got the goats is a longer story.  She arrived in Accord with one (Georgia) and purchased another (Sugar) as Georgia needed other goat company.  All the animals follow her everywhere, pen or no pen, like puppies.

All last fall, she and Leighton worked to build a shelter and pen for the goats.

The  other morning, here’s what greeted them when they opened the shelter:

Sugar had a baby!

They had no idea she was pregnant.  I remember thinking not long ago after looking at one of Tara’s videos that Sugar was “thriving.”  Her belly was round and fat.

I still don’t know the gender or the name…
