Underwood Family Farms in Moorpark, California, is known for their Animal Center. They have everything from donkeys, sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, birds, rabbits, cows, pigs, horses, emus and alpacas.

If you are a local you will probably have visited the farm with either a school group or as part of a birthday celebration at some point in the farm’s more than 25 years of residence in Ventura County.

And on Saturday, 12 October 2019, Mama Sandy gave birth to two healthy baby goats, Mickey and Minnie, in front of excited visitors. Unfortunately, I was not in attendance but I was so grateful to Underwood Family Farms for allowing me to come visit on 16 October 2019 to see the 4-day old baby goats where they were resting in the shed.

So without any further chit-chat may I have the pleasure of presenting Baby Minnie and Baby Mickey:
