Twin goats born at Riverdale Farm
The Alpine nanny "Kaping" gave birth to twin kids, a male and a female on
Sunday, November 9. Mom and kids are resting comfortably in the Lower Francey
Barn and are doing very well. All three goats appear to enjoy the attention of
well wishers. Names have not yet been chosen for the two kids but will be
selected by children participating in the Parent and Young Farmer program for
children 3 to 5 years of age and the Junior Farmers Program for children 6 to 8
years of age.

Other recently born goat kids include: Thelma's twins born August 29, Kaboom's
kid born September 1, and Kaluha's twins born September 5. All the kids can be
seen daily in the north paddock playing under the watchful eye of their mothers
and entertaining Farm visitors.

Riverdale Farm provides visitors with a glimpse of country life as it was 100
years ago. The buildings and animals are typical of those on a late 19th
century Ontario farm. Riverdale Farm staff help to preserve and protect older
breeds of animals and species of plants.

Riverdale Farm is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cow and goat milking
demonstrations are held every day until 10:30 a.m. outside the Lower Francey
Barn. For additional information, call Riverdale Farm at 416-392-6794 or e-mail
