A female goat named Tag, born and raised at Maymont, gave birth to two kids last Wednesday, April 2.
They just recently had their first veterinary visit on Tuesday, and the vet confirmed they are both healthy and growing normally.
Turns out that Tag gave birth to a male and female. The one-week-old kids are now available for public view at the Children’s Farm.
The kids don’t have official names yet.
“We handle naming in a variety of ways – sometimes the animal keepers name them, sometimes naming rights are sold at auction, sometimes we do a contest – and we haven’t determined yet who will name these cuties,” said Assistant Director of Marketing & PR with the Maymont Foundation, Carla Murray.
Tag and her offspring live at Maymont through a partnership with Wag-N-Wheel Farm.
