MOLLY THE GOAT HAS A BEAUTIFUL BABY BOY!!

Farmer Mary was surprised this evening by MOLLY the goat appearing with a baby boy! After a very busy day and a run to the feed store Farmer Mary was getting ready to unload the feed into the barn when she noticed MOLLY had a baby boy by her side. Thinking back on the day, she had missed MOLLY while helping visitors feed the animals, but then was too busy to look for her.

Farmer Mary led MOLLY to a maternity pen and made her comfortable with fresh hay in a dog house where the baby can sleep, lots of water, some hay and a variety of food.
Visitors can bring MOLLY treats like bananas, apples, carrots, kale, grapes…

In photos MOLLY is the large goat without horns. Her sister, DOLLY, (with horns) is due any day now. Farmer Mary had noticed both MOLLY and DOLLY’s udders had filled and their teats were sticking out for the past few days. This is a strong sign of impending labor.

UPDATE: The beautiful baby boy has been named BENJAMIN. This year Farmer Mary is honoring the children involved in the Newtown incident by naming all the babies born at Winterpast Farm after them.
